Click Here It looks like a decent deal, but theres a lot of sheisty people on EBay.
looks like SSAC products
The turbo and wastegate are good, but the bov looks like junk. and ive actually heard about tubular manifolds being pretty good for horsepower. id say 1500 isnt that bad for it, it has the brand new evolution wastegate.
Stop the presses!!!!!
Anyway, looks like a Turbonetics kit, with some general piping probably for a 99-00 Si. So you'd have to do some custom fitting, they tell you that, so at least you're warned. As far as the manifold, who knows, there's a few companies that make that sytle, only a couple are worth a damn, that kit is a crap shoot if you ask me.
its definatley an SSAC/XS power downpipe and regadless what they say its only a 2" downpipe and its a pile of shit the little 90* bend for the downpipe is has a seam on it that looks like a pinch frame on a car and the metal is about as thick as the hair on my balls.
SSAC/XS power manifolds arent all that bad though, sireg is running one with a 60-1 and is making 221WHP on 7PSI untuned on a stock B16. they arent badly designed manifolds if you ask me. we will see if it ends up cracking. 2 weeks so far.
Unfortunately design and execution of design are two different things, hopefully they didn't skimp.
Looks like a generic no name BOV
Who knows about the IC?
yea..........then why don't they say what brand core it uses? and why don't they say who designed the mediocre end tanks?
This should sum it all up.
Build it yourself and save $$$
you chould build a kit just as good for cheaper, thats alot of money and u dont even get any engine manigment kit with it, do it yourself
get a turbo from down2turbo on ebay, they are the shit, 350
manifold u can get a ssautoshit for like 150
Johnny race car intercooler 150
uberdata package with includes, ecu, 2 basemaps, burner 200
any ebay bov 50
misc piping is cheap, steathmodeperformace.com sells a kit and they sell oil lines as well
Dont got with ssautoshit, just get a cast manifold for like $200, at least then it won't break, even if it isn't the best design. Hell, later you can invest in one of the more expensive Full_Race knock offs for like $600.
