Well, this is all good news to me. After that day with Ned I was also
left with the idea that someday I could/would go to the Stage III+ and
remember discussing with him getting a break on the cost if I chose to.
But somehow I did get it in my mind that the + pushes the turbo to the
max. (which seems to be true according to some of the responses on this
thread) and that together, Ned and I decided that the III would be best
for me because of the chance of turbo failure. If I totally
misunderstood him I will be glad to know that and may very well go to
I certainly want to make clear that all of my experiences with Ned have
been outstanding and in no way was my mention of this issue in any way a
criticism of either him or his products. He is truly a valuable, helpful
resource for all of us and very much appreciated!
Thanks for all the input. BTW has anyone talked to him about why the
Stage III+ is no longer listed under Product Info>Pricing on his web
