I've never had the stock one so can't really compare.

It does eventually heat soak on the dyno but out on the road
it's consistent. Don't think it ever got above 35°c and that was giving it death on Dukes Pass.
We'll see hown it handles higher boost as I'm not really in to the meat of this turbo yet.

Can't fit the stock strut brace with it either but I've got 8mm phenolic spacers and the inlet manifold from a GD so the whole assembly sits higher up in the bay.

OE TMIC fitted on mine


I was wondering how you found the top mount as on the P1WOC they're talking about doing a group buy for OE TMIC's

How do you find the killer B manifold, worth the extra expense?

Yes and no. It really is a very high quality piece. It's the cost of material
and the workmanship that bumps the price up.

If you want to get 100% of the performance available for any given setup
then go for it. But against other good UEL and EL headers, a dyno will only show incremental improvements.

With it on the car it does feel savage. Boost comes in like a hammer,
recovery between shifts is near instant.

Now that I have it I would never go back but to some people it may not be worth twice the price of other headers.
