Gintani Ver. 2 S/C Kit

Hello Everyone,

We would like to share some photos of our updated s/c kit designs. Below are some photos of our prototype manifold which is almost complete. Just a few minor changes left. So these new kits will come with full DIY instructions and flash cables. Feel free to give us some feedback.

Thank you,
Gintani Team

Thank you, Yes we are redoing everything all over again. Since the old server kept getting hacked.

Liking the casting better than the previous 2 piece design. Personally I'd much rather see the internals instead of the cosmetics.

That's great to hear. It's nice to be able to differentiate through design elements other than aesthetics.

Let's see some more pics.

Nice looking manifold, probably will look way better once it has some color on it!

Would we have a choice of which setup can be chosen? Old vs. New.

For those that have the older manifold, can they upgrade?

Thank you everyone for the feedback. Still more fitment and testing going on, so no pictures yet. Only the teaser photos above.

Yes, the carbon fiber airbox is functional directing the air flow, and for this new setup will be keeping the heat out as well.

That can be done, until the old style runs out. I believe it may be already.

Any idea on why some people are saying the heads are lifting at a certain PSI and nobody has figured out the head bolt problems?

It's coming along. The new manifold is much better than that ugly pancake flowless manifold you previously had.

Change is good!

The heads do lift on these cars at higher boost levels. We already have head studs for these engines and we will post some pictures of them very soon...
