      Can the entire kit be powder coated black for an even more sleeper look?

      Pipes are fine to be stainless. How much on top of the base price to get the IC powder'd?

      we don't do powdercoating you'd have to do that locally

      Now how does this compare to say a particular FMIC that uses factory charge pipes. It was claimed a 11 whp gain though I do understand they mainly keep charge temps consistant. Does this one cool more?

      It looks better but is it better and why?

      This question makes me laugh someone is obviously misleading people.

      Ours is better. Some companies lie to persuade you to buy their parts, we tell you the facts and how things work, then you make the decision. First of all, FMIC kits don't make HP, that should tip you off right there that they don't know what they're talking about. FMIC's are designed to keep the charged air cooler more consistently over a period of time, and that's what ours does.

      The factory charge pipes are designed for 150-180HP, and have some restricting bends, our kit replaces all of those and is rated for 450HP.

      Do these have a Map sensor flange and N75 port already welded on to the pipping? I saw the DV discharge in the pictures but couldn't see those with the bumper on

      So i have had this IC on for a bit now..I love it EXCEPT....The DV port on the charge pipe isn't flared like all the other connections and several times already the discharge hose has blown off the pipe..No matter how much I tighten the camp it comes off after a while of driving. The boost forces it off over time. I had really cranked it down and though it was ok and it lasted a bit longer but it popped off again yesterday while i was on the freeway cruising

      Anyone else having this problem? I dont understand why that part is not flared anyway. The factory part is.

      Well it blew off again I'm going to have to find a T bolt clamp in that small size and crank the heck out of it.The standard hose clamp isn't working. 20lbs of boost over a few days and the hose blows off again.

      A short clip of our fab shop and R&D bay. A glimpse of the men behind turbo kit development and fabrication.

      Thanks for the compliments, we had been deep in R32 building at that time as you can probably tell by the bench.
