Me happy!

Nope, it is real! It looks quite snazzy! Very professional appearance, no exposed boards, LED's or anything, just a nicely powdercoated box with VERY high quality connectors. They actually have real pivot latches instead of the other cheap alternative found on many products.

Nice. Makes me wish they didn't cost so much (my Corolla doesn't deserve something worth more then itself).

They can make them for anything I think, go ahead and treat your Toyota.

they also make them for builts RS's. if you have cams, full exhaust, intake, and such, you can expect to see 12-18 hp gain on an NA.

Is the Hydra going on a 2.0 or 2.5? Is it a VF22 or a Zilla series?

This will be going on our 2.5L hybrid with an experimental turbo. We may have a new turbo available depending on how this testing goes.

Will I need new pistons?

Hydra has made some improvements for Element Tuning in the looks and quality department. Element also supplies some additional hardware for easier installation.

Thanks,

I was commenting on the new look... what are the other differences in quality you are referring to? everything else pretty much looks the same as mine.. except for I have the old sticker box... not that nice looking logo hehe... and is this exclusive to element?

We are having a local exhaust shop here custom fab up an uppipe for us, or rather, they are taking another uppipe we have here, and adding the feeder pipe for the Tial.

Well, got the box installed. The install was quite easy, the instructions from elementtuning.com were great, even the wiring of the wideband.

This is such a nice system! I will take some install pics this afternoon.

Nah I think he was selling both the Hydra and the Utec with the car. There was something in the car for sale classified, he'll probably chime in here.
