Thanks, they're retrofit HIDs from the Infiniti FX35 they cost me $800. When the car got totaled, the headlights were unsalvagable :(

just a quick one. This, this is love. I have saved up half of how much the FFS 190whp kit costs. Another few months and I'm pulling the trigger. Then a FM happy meal clutch, FM rad&fans, LC-1, and I'm set. Just in time to put the RPF-1s back on and start hitting the track at least once a month during summer.

FI looks better on the coldside of the engine bay IMO. That, and I have a RB 4-1 header and don't feel like having to sell it (lose money) if I go turbo. Plus I like the whine. I really like both setups, but I just feel that this is the one for me. Actualy, Begi has a coldside kit coming out that's supposed to be better than the FFS. "They are currently working on their pulley arrangement for the kit to reach 15psi. They are hoping for 250 RWHP at 15psi."

The FFS kits are fine, it's the completely horseshit engine management and the wanna-be intercooler you get with them that is the problem. Search M.net, you'll see a thread with them making 190whp on a 1.6 with a mp62 at 15psi!!!!!!! HOLY **** 15psi and less power than I make at 10psi....I mean come on, that is ******* stupid. If you paired a FFS setup with MS or Adaptronic, I bet you would see amazing gains in power and not have to worry ever five seconds about spitting rods.

I you are headstrong on going with a coldside, get the Begi kit. I will bet money that the quality/craftsmanship/customer support is ten fold what the yoyo man offers.

Plus, you actually get a intercooler, a real intercooler.

EDIT: Damn it, I just wrote that essay for nothing. lol.

Gotta admit, that's the first time I've seen someone commit to a FI system based on which side of the engine bay it looks better on.
