That being said Im very glad nothing happen to ur car Sam, It says a lot about the Gintani kit. But next time I think we should check are fluids before racing. n dont worry, I didnt check mine till after I heard ur story, luckly I havent hit anything.

I also agree with ur comment about the type of people the guys at Gintani are. They are awesome people and def. have some great customer service.

Sammy, just to catch up on your FI adventures... how many miles and track days have you performed so far with the Gintani kit?

The kit has been on since the beginning of november. The car had around 12-13k miles... now has +18k miles... 1 day at the drag strip. 1 track day at willowsprings. Many canyon runs (equal to track driving) that go for anywhere from 30-60 mins with maybe 1 cool down spot during the run.

Gintani doesnt really have stages, they can make the kit so that it fits ur needs. Wether u want low boost, higher boost, higher boost w/meth or even a fully built motor with lowered compresion. You basically tell them what u want and they can work with u. Thats whats good about their kit. Im about to up my boost and add meth to my kit
