Ok... lets keep it a clean match here. First lets see what TMG delivers for the VPR setup and put it through its paces. No need to be a throw-down here. Trust me, here in this corner, we will be F-ing this thing up when we get it. Already talked about challenging further the setup on @Kennyc56 's setup as it did go through JTG to near JTG. Even the ALPs setups challenged by me were a flop, till addressed, but only TXs on those, but mine was 3 - RXs only on a Compact vehicle . Hopefully my travel to Savannah soon @Transporter will Challenge my 3 -RX heads of ALP, and maybe a 3 head TMG if we want to add to a challenge on my SUV. See what time provides.

And future others like @The Pope

I'm amazed at the performance of the dual G2 set up I got from @Jag42 against not just the DE, but all of the other guns you blasted me with over and over.

@Jag42 will using the new VPR head change the algorithm that the TMG system uses and shut off transmit on the other heads similar to how ALP operates?

No heads will be shut off. VPR is totally different from TX.

The single cable will work with the VPR. You can not run the VPR off the splitter cable. G1 and G2 head will still work with the new CPU using a splitter cable. Per Jared

Looking to swap in my 5 G1 heads & G1 CPU for 3 G2 Heads, 2 VPR Heads & G2 CPU along with 1 long single cable (unless the VPR's use a different cable than the G1's, if so, I'd need 2 single cables).

You know @Jag42 , I can't let @Kennyc56 have better protection than I!!! :derp: :derp: :derp: :)

So.... hook me up so that @VariableWave and the rest of us can do some Beta Testing!!!!!!!!!!! :downswords::downswords::downswords::downswords:
G1 is perfectly fine so long as you don't overtorque the head screws and puncture the seal inside. I get higher than average results with G1 and so does Jag. He hasn't switched to the G2.

Then I'd just need/want to swap out 2 of my G1 Heads for 2 of the VPR Heads along with swapping my G1 CPU for the G2 CPU and I'd also need 2 of the long single cables ( to replace the Split Cable that's currently running to the 2 G1 Heads at the rear) unless I can Cap Off one of the Cable Ends on the currently installed cable. If I can just cap one of the two ends off, I'd only need 1new long cable.

@Jag42 can 2 VPR Heads be ran on a single splitter cable?

@Jag42 the next generation TMG CPU and heads designed to better handle VPR are a welcome addition to the communities defensive arsenal. Can you give us any details of TMGs plans to get their hands on the guns for which they currently lack the algorithms to jam?

Bear with me as I try to catch up here. :)
What is the arrangement of your heads currently?
2 G1 heads in the front and 2 G1 heads in the back? (Like I have)

Current configuration is 3 G1 Heads in front (upper corners of the lower grill & just below the center emblem) and 2 G1 heads in the rear (upper corners of the tag, as there are no real unobvious locations to mount them).
I want a new VPR Head to replace the front center head and one of the rear heads. I was also wanting to upgrade my other G1 Heads to G2 Heads, but have been told that isn't necessary.
My car (Infiniti Q60) has its challenges as to where I can mount the heads and She's a Fat Bottom Girl as well.

And my question about whether or not 2 of the VPR Heads could work off of one Split Cable was to see if there was any possibility of replacing the front center head with 2 VPR Heads that would be mounted in the upper corners of the upper grill.

Okay. Got it now. I hadn't yet thought of replacing one Gx head in back with a VPR. :)

I will be replacing my front bumper in 2-3 weeks. It would be great if I could install the G2 and VPR heads at the same time. Do you think that's possible?

They will need at least two months to test and they haven't even landed state side yet
