I just glanced at it but it looks average price to me.. keep in mind converting to CDN $, shipping, and border taxes..

guys exchange rate is amazing. Sure its still 10% but our tax is 15% and there is no tax on out of state purchases, or low tax (The states tax) on in-state purchases.

I deal with the states all the time on purchases as I have family there....killer deals even with the exchange rate. MY new rollerblades were $299usd and with exchange it was $330cdn...not bad if you ask me.

if you want me to help you get going, I'll help dude.

It's nice to see people starting to build their own turbo kits I've learn a few things about custom kits.. that i didn't know before I spun my bearing.

**** it and buy a full-race kit. You really cant match them, thats all I try and sell people. They are honestly, the best bang for your bucks and geoff is an awsome guy to deal with.

full-race man, call them and talk to geoff or message him on honda-tech. Its basically the only true equal length manifold out there.

i think it all depends on the purpose for the kit. if you intend to race a lot, then full race would be worth it. if it is for a daily driver and you don't race much, then i'd go with something a bit cheaper. it also depends on how much boost you want to run with... if you go high enough you will need to build your engine as well. $$$ starts to add up.

regardless, i'd invest in a good wb02 and some good tuning. that can save you a lot of broken parts and $ in the end.
