Question Is It Worth It ?

I want to know if the JRSC is worth the money or not .......I know that any F/I is better than none BUT is this kit with the the big boost kit worth my $$$$$$$.........Are there any other F/I kits out there around the same price range worth a second look?......... What kinda #'s am i looking at hp/tq, 1/4.........How much boost will it produce?...........About how long will the stock internals last with this set up......What else should be done to the car? Besides a tune.........So far i have a sri, tb, sts......ANY input is welcome............Thanks

You should look at Toms stage1 kit. Its around the same price and has better #s. Just go to and see what he has. His stage1 kit is probably the one I am going to go with when I come up with the money.

IMO, it is not worth it. Get Tom's Kit, or get a Powerworks kit. Basically, do the $/hp comparison and you will find the JRSC gains are WAY overpriced.
... still plays with cars ...

Well now are you looking for Turbo or Supercharger? Because if you have enough I'd get Toms for the turbo and the Powerworks for the supercharger. Those are both good kits and will give you well into the 250+ range. Toms can even go into the 300+.
Oh yeah!
