I have this installed on my car. I am loving it!

I am pretty sure that I am the only one in Socal that has this kit. If you want to check it out sometime, let me know.

That is really cool! Tell us more! Did you install it yourself? Did you have to install extra components that is not part of the kit? Does the car run stable? I would love to see your car. Where is simi valley at?

I could have done the install myself but we were pressed for time so i let a shop handle it. Everything is included in the kit.

Actually the car is in Valencia(near magic mountain). it's about 35 mins from Torrance. Send me an email we can probably work something out this weekend. arthur@autoarttech.com

35min from Torrance!? Geez you drive fast . . . Yah . . . I love to see your car, but I am working this weekend, so I won't be back in Torrance. Maybe next weekend or the weekend after. Thanks!

I was thinking more about turbo kits in general . . .

Do you know if this turbo kit allows full power/throttle for pro-longed periods of time . . . such as at the track? Is the stock fuel cables able to supply enough fuel to the engine for long periods of full-throttle application without starving the engine?

Ok,

What about smog test? I've been saving up to boost up but since I relocated to Cali all I read or hear about are these CARB laws(BS, they want your $$$).

Feedback please?

you will not pass CARB regulations... You can remove the kit for emissions testing, but if you get pulled over w/ it on, you will be cited...

Re pull over; I do have the right(and left) to not display my engine(raise hood) because they "think" it's modified. They hardly know what it is. Let alone I don't "raice" I just love AWD.

P.S. I'll have to meet/ride with some RST's if they'll grant it.
