Sinister vs Rcd egr delete

Any difference between the two companies kits as far as quality goes?

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a delete and noticed the rcd is on sale for 160. Seems like a hell of a deal!!

Whats your opinions guys.

Does the RCD one come with the up pipe? Some do not. The RCD one that I have seen comes with the up pipe for around $300.

They're the exact same kit, Sinister copied RCD's design. But RCD has treated a few members pretty poorly, so it's your choice.

I went with RCD a couple years ago because Sinister simply copied their design. I wanted to give credit where credit was due, so I went with RCD. But since then, RCD has mistreated some fellow members in regards to their injectors.

As far as quality, my RCD kit has been installed for about two years and it's still running strong.

ya the kit comes with the up pipe or at least it shows it coming with it on their webpage.

Guess i'll order the rcd kit. Pretty hard to justify the 140 dollar difference if the kits are basically the same

I have installed both. The question is do you want to buy the original or the copy? and do you want a anodized blue egr plate? (the sinster comes in blue)

This original or copy thing is ridiculous. There are only so many ways to make a delete kit.

My head has been spinning lately trying to figure out why there are so many EGR deletes varying from $160 (RCD delete) to First Coast's $310 Block off w/ cap to BPD's $450 delete. I hate firing off these typical questions that everyone is tired of hearing, but what is the main advantage to spending hundreds of dollars more than RCD's (or any ebay kit) delete??

edit: again, I went carousing around some performance sites and decided I should get a "complete solution/master kit/everything-you-could-want-and-more" package. But again there are sooooo many offered and I dont want to break things down into a powerpoint presentation to outweigh every pro and con...curse this internet with its abundance of knowledge and sources!
