      Idles decent now.. I like the linkage adjustment on the GSXRs better then these, but it is what it is.

      the linkage ajustment blows on these i agree.....
      I was in the car that that ate the screw when it happened.....It went from..this thing is running great..to wtf was that noise...and where did the power go...in a half a second
      Live and learn....
      Lets see some vids of this thing in action...
      and does the linkage bind between the bodys like the 16v ones do?

      They're ok. There are things that I liked better about the gsxr's, and the Jenvey setup seems better though at a much higher price point.

      agreed with paul. there are some things that i would have changed if possible, most of it being little things like putting the throttle cable on the drivers side. the quality is very nice, they did a great job in designing them but at this point only time will tell as to how they perform. i have had the car out several times but we still have to do some more tuning then i am going to get some real miles on it.

      The only good thing about 16v's is you can use a stock 20v rail and the no problems that go with it.

      Got it running quite nice before he put the 16v in it. No videos that I know of.
