Question TSI extreme turbo kit?

www.needboost.com/tsi/extreme.asp

Anyone heard of this kit? The TSI extreme?

its a good deal...is there a reason its so cheap ? It comes with a GT25...so it couldn't be that bad...

I wonder how "bolt on" it is...

DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!

First off, its the worst quailty kit you could buy. The fitment is terrible, intake tube is ridiculous. Very generic install instructions (basically for a Honda). These people put out about 100 different kits for all kinds of cars, so imagine how great each kit is. The honda kits are pretty good, but thats about it.

I am speaking from experience on this subject. I bought one of these kits - it took me 5 months to get my car back on the road. That 5 months is inflated a bit because I couldn't work on it that much, but its terrible. I got all new exhaust piping made and also parts of the intercooler piping. I refused to use that flexible hose they give for the intake. This kit is JUNK the way it is.

It was fun to install tho, I learned a heck of a lot about installing a turbo kit because I made it a custom one.

Actually it says a T25BB which (if I'm not mistaken) is a lot different to a GT25.

If I am mistaken, then I paid too much for my GT25!

The intake really isn't that confusing, its the front mount piping that jumbles the engine bay up if you ask me. My intake is just shaped like a big "U". I want to get an intake temp gauge and see if it acutally helps up there, or if it would be better of by the fender, kinda by the stock location. I know its prone to heat soak where its at now, but so would a TMIC. Anybody know how much of a difference it would make, or any ideas, if I would put the filter in the stock location???

Impreza GC8 just blowin hot air

I have thought alot about this.

TMIC with in fender filter or
TMIC with custom filter box under the small hood vent.

VS

FMIC with in fender filter ...or
FMIC with custom filter box under small hood vent...or
FMIC with custom hood scoop intake


What would yield the best results?

well..the extra cooling from the FMIC is totaly worth the insignificant amount of turbo lag from the extra piping. And the hood scoop definatly has the coldest amount of incoming air....AS long as you build a box to stop the heat soak!...the small air vent also works...but doesnt have as high air velocity.

Then you gota think about an intercooler sprayer and if that is more money efficient than building your own custom set-up with FMIC...
anyone heard good things from cryo2?
anyone got any thoughts??
