They're great. Right up there with begi/fm/trackspeed

Get it. Run at least 20psi (because any less is for suckers). On stock injectors and a PC Pro of course

My guess would be that the exhaust manifold would be the weak link and should be replaced with a FM or Begi unit.

I don't know I like the down pipe more than Begis 2 piece garbage one (no offense to whoever designed it)

Although that kit you linked, its pretty cool that it fits year 91, 92, 93, AND 94.

I actually have this kit.... Not installed though because I'd rather piece my own kit together. It seems ok as far as the product quality, but I didn't expect too much from a $900 kit.

Anyone want it?

For the price of shipping? It would definitely make a pretty cool light fixture.

I had a similar kit that I got for about $100 locally. The downpipes are OK but the exhaust manifolds are ****.

My 1.6 was pretty quick: [email protected] mph on **** tires and a slipping clutch. I also was running stock injectors with band aids.

I don't think the spelling was on purpose. I think its a typo. The previous listing was spelled correctly.... Matter of fact, Wannafbody... you have a PM
