    Hey, I don't really have a way to record or post a sound clip. But trust me, this is the exhaust you want. Its nice and quiet when cruising, but of course with a turbo, when you get on the throttle, all you hear is the dumptube anyways. You will not be disappointed with this exhaust.
    I Vtec do you? ·
    The vac lines and the vac line fittings (for the boost gauge/bov and the boost by gear solenoid) are pretty crappy, I'd upgrade those

    Honestly, you don't need much extra maintenance. I change the oil more frequently (about once every three weeks or every 3k miles). I like to change the tranny oil more often just to keep it fresh (every 10k). That's really it. Gas mileage hasn't changed, car still runs like it did before the turbo

    Got them before I knew I was gonna sell, but they will allow for more boost and they are smoother at idle. Price is gonna go up 200 since.they are 600 injectors

    Haha nah you didn't, sorry again man. I just started a new job and I've been shirking on responding to messages because I'm ultra stressed every time I come home. I'm good now though.

    I actually haven't had a single mechanical problem with my car since installing this kit a year ago. I did have a small boost leak at one point, but I replaced everything with better clamps and it went away

    Sorry for being slow to get back to you. It will be for sale in about a month with bigger injectors capable of pushing 16-17 psi and 500-550whp with a crushed fpr

    thats what i was thinking of to.was just to keep the turbo turned down to like 8 psi until i had some extra money to upgrade the gears.now what did you enjoy more the s/c or the turbo?

    its been good, i drive around with only 370ish whp. trans has been good so far, gears whine but nothing scary yet

    Sc is by far the cheapest and simplest. The used market for them is pretty safe as well. I didn't spend too much more than 4k on my setup and I made upwards of 300whp.

    To be honest with you I would have probably kept my SC but my roommate had the SRT turbo and he offered me a trade that I couldn't refuse. The SRT kit has been badass as hell. It truly is stupid fast but I do feel like I am always worrying more. If you're pretty mechanically inclined and know turbo kits/systems then it shouldn't be anything over your head. There is just more components to keep track of than the supercharger.

    you should also evaluate your goals and purposes for the car, if it's mainly gonna be a daily driver I'd just go supercharger for sure.
