Default Helix UP, Endlinks Cusco sway

Well, I just finished up a grueling install this sunday and here is what I have to say about the parts I installed.

Helix Up-Pipe

It looks pretty good, the flanges are thick, and the nut spacing is good. It was a seamless fit once We got it on the car. It also comes with gaskets, which is nice.

The only problem with this part, is that the EGT bung that was welded to it it, had flashing left on the inside. Thank god I was carefull enough to look. It might have never come off, but what if it did? Im going to make sure gruppe-s knows about this.

The car is a very different experience after this install. The turbo spools faster, I get boost sooner, and it genrally improves the driveability of the car.

Helix Endlinks.
These are adonized purple, just like the pictures on gruppe-s's site. They seem to be constructed very well, and were a breeze to install.

Cusco Adjustable Rear Sway

This is a nice part. All and all a major improvement over factory, so Much so, that I could tell under normal driving conditions. My only complaint with this part is it comes with instructions in what I assume is Japaneese.



I will post more after I go to an Auto-x and see how everything has changed.

Are you getting any sort of noise coming from the sway bar and endlinks? I installed my whiteline bar with the helix endlinks and got some clunking. I went back under the car and rear-greased everything and the sounds went away. Its back now but nowhere near as bad as it was.

yes, I get some clunking, but I have just lived with it, it isnt real bad, but I am thinking on a way of quieting this. Im not sure how yet, but I will think of something :P

Update:

Everything is working well. I had to move the swaybar in to the stiffest setting for some performance, but all in all, its good. The up pipe is still solid no leaks, the only real problem I have with it is My own fault, I should have heat wrapped it, My under hood temps have went up even more. I will get under there some day and wrap the thing, but not anytime soon.

Just curious, did you just remove the turbo to do the install or did you jack the car and do it a la Perrin's instructions? I have a Helix Up going in as well as soon as break-in is over.
