Price (around 250 on ebay)

Just finished putting this kit in my 06 KR. The kit is very well made. All cnc billet alu parts. Once you have all BS apart, the kit goes in with no problems. The only thing that could be better is the length of the bolts that hold the new up pipe could be longer. It's a ***** trying to start the nut with like a thread and a half poking out the mani hole.

Other than that, wow it was a pain to get down to the cooler. My buddy and i were pretty pissed off pulling all the factory stuff apart. Not much room in there. You pretty much have to lay on the engine to work. If i met the engineer who designed it, i would have knocked him out.

The new up pipe sure spools the turbo much faster. This kit will do me fine until i stuff the cummins in.

Did you have your manifold cleaned at a machine shop???
And did you change your oil cooler out while you had it all apart???

And how would this compare to the kit that FCDP carries? I like the price of sinister better but I know FCDP kit is very nice.

I installed this kit last week, i did not use the wimpy hose clamps that came with the kit. I used bigger beefier manly ones cause i do not want to go back down there. The kit is not hard to install just irratating. I did a lot of different things while i installed mine but i would think i could do it in 5 hours or less from start to finish if i had to without rushing.
