Yeah I guess I have heard more bad stories about turbo's then S/C but I think that is because turbo's are more popular. Turbo is really your only option when it comes to r18.

Plug and Play harness is what it would be if you read it as-is. Same thing you would if you have a cd-player in the car. It's much better than splicing wires in other words. What made you switch sides and own an EX over an SI?

This about this...

If you just sell your EX and get an Si, you'll be getting the same increase in HP that you would boosting your R18. In addition, you'll have the reliability of a stock car, a higher revving engine, better interior, etc for the same amount of money it would cost to turbo the car you already have.

i test drove and SI and fell in love with it until i went to sign the papers and did my final walk through of the vehicle... found alot of things wrong with it and they had tacked on a BUNCH of extra stuff that was never agreed on and they kind of pressured me into signing the papers for the SI and stuff so i elft that dealership and went to another one and they didnt have an Si's in and it sucked but they had the EX. i was in despret need of a vehicle so i got the EX and i regret not getting an SI but i like my EX
