Thumbs up Comprehensive review of Stage 0 from Vishnu Performance (Part One)

The kit consist of

1.)Vishnu Uppipe with studs and 2nd EGT Bung for an after market EGT Gauge.
2.) NGK spark plugs that are colder than stock.
3.)Uni-Chip piggyback computer with male and female connectors (for easy install and take out) and Velcro.
4.)Vishnu Under drive pulley with belts to match. (C&N cut from on peace of metal with a light trick coating). Mine is silver but I believe Vishnu also offers it in black.
5.)Ball and Spring MBC per set to 15psi or very close at least.

Quality of the kit

Uppipe: Is top notch with different length studs in the correct locations. Tig welded with Mendal bends. I looked into the uppipe to see if the bung holes had any metal shavings and to my surprise it was completely clean and ready to install. Compare to the other units on the market that I have saw this is the only one I would install in my car.
Under drive pulley: C&N cut and is perfect. Not one blemish or imperfections. Light and strong. To my under standing its only 15% under driven.
Uni-Chip: Performance tuning and it working should be enough for quality. And Shiv's maps are quality from the get go.
MBC: Nothing special, but a very reliable ball and spring unit. I did like how they put a little dab of some kind of sealant on the threads. So it would not come loose after you set it. Just another nice and finishing touch to the unit.

Over all quality of this kit is just impressive to me. Everything is made very well and with kind attention for detail. My hats off to Shiv, I can't believe he makes money on these products.

Installation of the kit

The Uppipe and Under Drive Pulley I chose to have professionally done. Just because I don't have the time to have my daily driver not on the road. And with the holidays around the corner time is very crucial for me. I will update this thread by Monday the 17th.

If you have any questions please post. I do not have any part of the kit installed yet. This is just my first impressions.

I believe I'm one of the first to receive it out of state.

My Best

The web site claims the price to be $995 - introductory price anyway.
