AJP is just as reliable. If you guys were in Florida there was a guy at the meet yesterday with the AJP kit on his car hes been driving with it on for 22,000 miles and 30,000 miles on his car. Lit420_si is also a good example of a daily driver AJP guy. Some people have had issues in the past but I think these are the days of the new.

If you are not going to be doing this very soon I would hold off. I am getting my AJP kit installed on December 5th. I will be doing pictures daily aswell as a daily review of progress. After my install there will be a video of it on the dyno and I may be doing a blog aswell. Azulsi is someone that you may want to PM or talk to he JUST got the AJP kit on which I believe he installed himself or had done locally.

From what I've read on this forum.. So far I got... If you go with Greddy, all you need is a very good tune and you'll have an awesome DD. If you go with AJP, you'll need a good shop to install it for you and a reflash and YOUR DONE! I don't know about the TSI turbo.

Edit: Oh yeah and if you get an AJP kit, thats alot of power, so just don't abuse the engine.

I have the Greddy kit and I like the kit for a DD. What type of power are you looking for? If you looking for around 300whp then the Greddy is the kit. If you wanting more the AJP kit is the way to go. Several AJP owners are getting well over 300whp --- 411whp with the AJP kit. If you go the AJP route.. be ready to spend some money down the road on built motor to maximize the kit.

maybe. but my guess is if they have any mods as well prolly not. you would have to ask other greddy owners but it seems that SRT-4s atleast respond VERY well to mods.

the cost is much higher for the AJP though. so if money is an issue I would say greddy would be a good idea. you also need to take into consideration if you ever want to upgrade upon you greddy though aswell. if you are looking for more than 300ish hp. AJP is the ticket.
