i was looking at getting this kit http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=190137067645&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT&ih=009

Anyone know whats up with the piping on the pass side where its bends down? Looks messed up but im guessing they just didnt align it properly? So is this kit worth it or not?

I guess so if you only plan on running a k03/4. It will be better then stock but anything more then that and you will need a good core/piping.

Those pics are actually ones a member posted on here. You can put them above the ac lines on the left side instead of below. Also those couplers suck, you want the hump ones.

Make sure you get the 2.25 inch piping. 2.5 is too big for the k03

well i plan on going pc-16 k04 so it should be alrite and yeah i want 2.25" piping with it,Also plan on using the hump couplers not the ones with it so just making sure the pass side pipe can sit straight and not like that?

Also broke my cat today so deciding on getting a testpipe anyone know about this one?

I literally just got that exact same kit in the mail today from the same vendor. Everything looks great, it came with a ton of piping, hoses, and clamps. core looks great. I'm also going to run it with the giac k04 file...

how do you break your cat?

Yeah I'm wondering the same thing..

That test pipe looks fine. Only thing I'd be weary about are the gaskets and bolts.

testpipe just came off while driving, scared me at first cuz of the exhaust tone but then realized what had happened. So yeah i just bought the fmic now should I get the testpipe too cuz car goes into the shop on monday morning?

Yeah go for it. I would get a HFC though better for the environment and doesn't smell... Also the gains from a test pipe over a HFC are minimal.

Yeah, thats my old car, that seller is the same seller who uses my pics all over ebay, he has like 3 or 4 accounts. He paid me for those crappy cell phone pics after I called him out for using my pics, lol.

will that fit behind a stock bumper?

it should, with mild cuts and modifications.

stock bumper has very limited space behind it. but some of the guys here still have stock bumper with fmic.
