Not sure at all...380 whp was pretty fun, it should be nuts though I just want highest hp record for a 1.6L ; I have no idea what it is, but 450+ should seal the deal.

I have never had issues with traction, at 280 whp which I drive daily 15 psi I can't even break tires loose in 1st gear, or chirp them into 2nd gear on a dry road. At 380 whp I would break tires loose in 4th gear at 80+ mph, on street tires...drag radials and a few clicks on the AGXs should fix that.

Wowzers, can we have a shot of the collector rectum?

How much was it for the manifold and downpipe? Price for each please.

I have not received the manifold yet, and deleted the pictures Abe sent me of the collector. I think I paid 1400 for the whole thing, dump/manifold/dp 260 for the coating

Good to see another ARTech system going in! Abe is the ******* man! Awesome quality and customer service.

When and if I ever move to another setup for more power, I will be going with a similar design. I still have yet to enjoy the car at the power its at, so all in due time really.

Excellent businessman, and great guy to deal with. He's currently working on my parts (full 3" exhaust w/22"), and always updates me -with pics- that just make me drool and be glad I'm not dealing with some slacker shop that keeps me in the dark for weeks.

I can't wait to see where you're at after your new stuff goes in.
