I love the sound of my greddy type S. I don't know whare to buy them other then ebay. They can be had new for about $160 or so plus shipping. Otherwise there like $230 from a greddy dealer.

Ever heard of an attitude? Sheesh. Sure, you can buy them at a speedshop, but I have yet to go to one that isn't OUTRAGEOUS in price. And most of them that I have experienced I wouldn't trust with my lawn mower. And helping ME install stuff? WHo do you think the local speed shops turn to when they need help out of a bind????? ME! Maybe it's the inbreeding and lack of intelligence n my area, I dunno. But hey, why pay $230 when you could have one from ebay for $160 or so? EBAY is your friend!

Are you going to have a blow-thru or draw thru setup? Every kit out there has a draw thru setup. And when you have that you have to reroute the air back into you intake, and not vent into the atmosphere. Soooo it won't be loud anyways. Even if you bought the RFL and tightned it down all the way it won't be as loud as you think it will.

But if you went with a blow thru set up wich would have to be custom then it would be a different ballgame.

Turbo XS does make a dual port, that routes the air back in and bleads some off to atomsphere as well for sound.

BTW. I have worked at or owned a " speed shop" for the last 15 years of my life. I don't mean to come across so harsh, but there are times that the interenets purpose seems to be to whore out parts at 10 dollars over cost, and yeah, we do cost more sometimes, but the funny thing is that once you become a regular customer, you don't pay retail anymore, nobody seems to be able to figure that out...Oh yeah, in our area the imbreeding seems to be on your side of the counter...LOL

Do you have any idea how often we give FREE advice or fix some ebayed piece of crap intake or exhaust..it gets old man.
