Hi Focus Racer. I DID own an 02zx5 ATX w/ a JRSC m45. Had a 65mm TB and Borla as well on it. In the Very beginning, the 1st few times driving it , it seemed like it was a big change in performance, till I got my SVTF. I think it ALMOST could keep up with the SVT till 60/70mph.
It picked up the "off the line performance " but it ran out of breath at 60/70. It was reliable in as far as it always started, and nothing fell off, but keeping the belt tight was a P.I.t.a.
When JR 1st came out it was the only thing {SC} out there, for the money. I sold it and the car after about 6-9 mos, don't remember exactly,and bought another SVTF. I think you will out grow its modest performance gains quickly. Bela's discription of a budget booster is apt.
If I knew then what I now now I would have invested my $3000+ in an alternative choice.
