Boosted RPS

Mr. Fix It
So, on my search to replace my antiquated turbo I did a lot of research and contacted some vendors. I came to the conclusion that my combination would need something in the 6466-6766 range of turbo. One of the vendors that I hit up was BoostedRPS. I knew nothing about the company other than that they were a new vendor in the Buick community. I thought to myself, do I take a chance and give these guys a call, or do I stick to what I know and go with one of the other vendors I have used successfully in the past. So I call, and this hyper ass guy named Tyler answered the phone. We started talking about my combination and he suggested a few turbos from Work turbo. I know of Work because I know of Reed Partridge but have not seen too many Buicks run his turbos. So, Tyler keeps on talking and talking about turbos, suspension, weight lifting, and so on. After lots of discussions back and forth on my combination, he suggested a Garrett GTW6465R or GTW6765R would be a great fit for my combination since I was after a ball bearing Turbo. Before we confirmed the deal, he contacted Reed and gave him specifics of my car. Reed concluded that the GTW6465R would fit my combination better than the GTW6765R and would still move enough air to be capable of 9sec power. After he consulted with Reed, we locked in the price on the Turbo, oil lines, oil filter, water lines, and actuator. The price he gave me for everything shipped was AMAZING compared to other vendors for an equivalent combination of parts. After that is was waiting time. When the turbo came in, all was sent as advertised other than the actuator was being sent separately. A few days later, the actuator came in and I installed the turbo. I have been extremely happy with the product, support, and customer service provided by BoostedRPS specifically Tyler Clark. I highly recommend them as a vendor to anyone looking to buy any of the great products they offer.


Now, on to my opinion (not that anyone cares) on Tyler specifically.


Tyler Tyler Tyler, what can I say? Let me start by saying that in my opinion, he is misunderstood A LOT of the times and I can attribute that to his approach. We have had many conversations on the phone and I can tell you that he is extremely passionate about Turbo Buicks and the Turbo Buick community. I feel that that passion sometimes, check that, a lot of the times translates into internet posts that come out off harsh to say the least. But me knowing what I know of Tyler, I can see what he is trying to explain, but I can also see how others can completely misunderstand his point because the emotion in his posts kind of take over and all people see is a complaining young California kid that’s pissed off about something. I have mentioned to Tyler many times that he needs to let things “marinate” (sit on it for a while) before getting all worked up on the keyboard and posting something that should be approached without emotions attached. Unfortunately, he has made many of these posts based on his emotions at the moment that have painted, in my opinion, an inaccurate picture of who Tyler really is and what he represents. No one but himself is to blame for this and hopefully people will eventually get to actually meet and talk to Tyler to get the real picture. Due to his past posts, rants, or whatever you want to call it, it seems like Tyler has backed himself in a corner as a Vendor and BoostedRPS is not getting the fair shake they deserve as a great company offering great products. I am not here as a cheerleader for Tyler. I am not a BoostedRPS “Fan Boy”. I am just giving my opinion and my point of view as in to what has been happening with Tyler as a new vendor. At the end of the day, I know that Tyler really does mean well, and Tyler really does care about the Buick community. However, it is up to Tyler to approach things differently in order to succeed as a vendor and for people to see who he really is and not base their thoughts on him on all the past posts based on emotions he has made. Hopefully time will show that Tyler means well and that BoostedRPS is great vendor with great products for the Buick community. I will continue to do business with BoostedRPS along with all other vendors in the community. I am not a “side” picker, and I could give a shit if anyone even cares. Tyler and BoostedRPS are good in my book.

How much did you pay for the turbo lines etc?

Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk
For 12 total fittings, really nice oil lines, turbosmart inline oil filter, water lines, and heat shielding for all lines, it was all in a well put together kit for right about $200 shipped. The an fittings are not Chinese stuff, they look to be Fragola fittings but ill have to double check. The turbo was under $1700 but ill have to go through the receipt to get you the actual numbers. I could not have gotten this turbo with the Buick precision 3 bolt .85 housing cheaper anywhere else.

I second this, he is extremely passionate with his job which is a great thing. I've called other vendors before and a lot of times you get guys not wanting to explain anything to you they do not want to take the time to do it. Its almost a "do you want it or not".. Defiantly NOT the case with Tyler, he will explain and explain until you understand. I do not know about other people but i like to know what im going to get.
He has a skill to explain which makes a great seller. I'm in sales too and have been for many years, when you have a passion for some thing its very hard not to take things personally. Sometimes you just have to step back,wait,think and then continue. Its just practice i have not doubt that he is going to be great. The shopper will see his passion and the time he take to explain.

If you want some one that will give you the time and care about you personal, your end goal, also have the knowledge to back it all up.
call Tyler with BoostedRPS

Im not even going to say which vendors dont give you the time. I hate that. how are you going to sell if your not willing to explain it!!!!????
people will soon finger it out on there own.

Thumbs Up here for Tyler , good guy and loves our cars .

Thanks Keith for the kind words!

I really do try to be as honest and upfront as possible with people.

I think anyone who has spoken to me would agree that it just takes 1 conversation with me to realize just HOW passionate I am about these cars :D

I personally have meet Tyler and talked to him about GN parts several times. I’m somewhat new to GN’s soo he definitely gave me extensive knowledge and every time I have questions or get stumped fixing something I can call him or text him and he always guides me in the right direction. As soo does this website which I am very grateful for. With out this website I wouldn’t of never met Tyler or I would be stuck trying to figure certain things on my own and probably not did it right. I think the GN community is abit small compared to other car communities and the majority of the original GN pro’s from the past are highly respected and trusted. That when someone new comes along with extensive GN knowledge and new ideas there will always be a lil controversy. The majority of the GN builders are the old timers and the new GN builders are taking all their knowledge and using today’s technology to keep up and keep us here for the future. All said and done you can’t say nothing about a person till you actually meet him and talk to him. I know that I’m no one on this site for you to believe me. I just wanted to share my personal experience dealing and conversations with Tyler. Thanks Tyler for all the help!!!!
