My buddies car who I heard this kit on originally is a 2008 dct and he hasn't had any problems yet so I guess it's really luck of the draw? I believe my car peaks at 8 psi and so far so good
Congrats man !

There is no issues with the 2008 bearings based on my 2008 motor that i tore down after 50000 miles.
This is good to hear and puts me at ease. It's the one thing that has been stopping me from getting a blower as I really don't want anyone tearing the bottom end apart to replace the bearings.

OP: enjoy the new found power, I hope to join the boosted club soon. Post some pics!!

Congrats! Does the Gintani kit come standard with a BOV rather than a bypass valve?
