$15k is very steep for a SC kit that makes 450whp, at least for me. If I was going to drop $15k I would just sell the M3 along with my current mods and buy a used 997 GT3.

It looks great..but I am also confused about price. You are already a customer, but you don't know how much you paid/will pay?

Found it. Yeah, they totally said it was false. Good job to the mods for closing it. That could have led to alot more misinformation

Your car with your current mods is worth low 50k range. Plus 15k and you're still about 25k short of a 997 gt3.

And the GT3 will still be slower lol...

Also people complaining about the gains should wait for the other companies to put out numbers on customer car besides the Gintani Dyno is very stingy I know first hand.

The GT3 may not be much faster than just a bolt on M3, but we need to show that first.

Anyone know if either Gintani or AA plan on applying for a CARB E.O. for either of their kits?

Please remember this is on a DynoDynamics, which is a very low reading dyno. I will Dyno on a dyno jet and dyno pack so u guys can get a better idea.

If it made 500whp on dynodynamics for 15k I would consider it for my E92.

Thats a nice ride you have!

Thanks and trust me they ordered a new pulley from Vortech to up the boost a bit and it should make 500whp on a DynoDynamics if not very close. Now if this was on a DynoJet I gaurantee u this car will make atleast 500whp. This is why I will be dynoing on a Dynojet and a Dynopack soon.
