You know you can buy both from Cxracing and get the same fmic for cheaper? Mishimoto = Cxracing with the 'Mishimoto' logo painted on.

shhhhh. The Mishimoto rep (not a paying supporter) will come in here and say that they engineer their own stuff and its made in their own facility in china.

OP, you've got enough supporting mods to run ALLOFIT from the greedy setup, whatever ALLOFIT is for that, like 160hp or something.

Its probably more likely that their chinese manufacturer has WAY more capacity than it needs to support mishimoto's supply and they just make whatever the **** they feel like and sell it however they want. Because honestly an american company has very little control over their chinese manufacturing even if they own the plant.

Was it because of the paint Brain? I'm guessing you used the wrong paint.

Mine was surprisingly good. And I even cut it open. I would certainly buy again if I didnt mind the fact that it weighs 50billion pounds because the end tanks are cast a 1/4" thick.
