Awesome work as always. I don't think there's any other mods out there that can give you a 100whp for this price

What is the IAT for both intercooler and non-intercooled setups?

How much would it cost to upgrade to an intercooler setup?

The San Fernando Valley is well known to have the hottest weather all year round in Southern California (hitting 100 degree is the norm). This gives us bountiful opportunities to test our kits in very hot weather even when summer has not hit yet (keep in mind we just released this kit and summer does not technically start until June 21st). That being said, our kits have performed excellent in our very hot weather conditions. Like I stated earlier, our kit is designed to provide great power at a great price. I think it is plain to see why someone would choose our kit. Some of our competitors have been offering similar kits with no cooling for some time now and it seems as though their customers are very happy with what they have.

Would it be safe to assume around 500whp for a cat less car on 93 octane?

Charles any chance in doing a CARB certified kit? Having to yank off the blower and returning the car to near stock levels every other year is a huge detriment.

I'm still doing research and learning a lot so this might be a noob question but any concerns with bearing wear with this kit? I know I've seen some of the bigger inter cooled kits where they recommend swapping the rod bearings.

Not to hate on the "Gintani" logo again, but the manifold looks so OEM that I bet if they made one with a recess for an "///M V8" logo instead, the smog tester would never know the difference. That's especially true with the Stage 2 kit and the covered air box.

Issue is the big hair dryer right in the front..I doubt they would miss that..

Ha! You're right. I was mostly thinking of their upper-level kits which cover the snail. The Gintani (turbo and second-tier S/C) and Harrop kits look very close to OEM in my opinion, and but for the aftermarket logo, could easily pass as an OEM setup to the untrained eye. If I made an aftermarket blower kit with a near-OEM looking manifold, I would consider charging a little premium for an "OEM-replica" manifold for those of us who, for whatever reason, prefer the OEM look.

Would the tune on the stage1 kit account for a car running a cat less exhaust?

Nice price and product. But how in the heck did a stock M3 put down only 307 whp? I thought they averaged 350's (even 320's on a mustang dyno). 307 is close to a stock 335i (n54 anyway).

Thank you! Dyno Dynamics generally read much lower compared to other dynos. Hence, we have provided graphs of the same car on our Dyno Dynamics and Specialty Z's Dyno Jet to show the comparison.
