Call up Garret at WorldOnePerformance. Tell him Mark sent you over.. He can get them for relatively cheap.

After I get all the couplers and have everything finished I was going to pressure test it. I actually already have my homemade little tester all ready to go!

The only things you need with this kit are a elbow and coolant overflow, and a bov flange of your choise welded to the piping.


If you have any other questions you can email me. And just to clarify I got this kit from fatboygarage about 2 months ago.
I'm just quoting this from the mouth of the guys from fatboygarage (it does help living pretty close by) and the guy whose white WRX is featured with the intercooler kit on.

His words were pretty much, lots of bumper cutting, lose fog lights, need new overflow bottle and smaller battery. Granted I didn't have time to take a look at his car, but he said there was a lot of work done to it.

However, they keep making inprovements to the kit every day, so I wouldn't be surprised if they addressed that issue.

I was also told I would need a smaller battery. The pipe comes up just like that of the turboxs and most others right to the side of the battery and right where the stock coolant bottle is. The car they have in the pictures or atleast the ones that I have seen has a rotated turbo setup.

are there instructions with it? I am thinking about this for one of my cars, can anyone give me a scan of the instructions? I contacted the e-bay seller with the username posted, he said no bumper support. What did you use, JDm bumper bar?
Thanks

What in the world are you talking about here?
I never said anything bad about ANY exhaust. I have SSAuto exhaust and headers and love them. Read, read, and then read again. Then put a foot in mouth.

Special Thanks to those who have made this thread more confusing than need be!! Anyways this thread is dedicated to the XSPower/SSAutochrome. Not the other ebay fmic where you have to remove the battery..

I have been getting a lot of the same question since most people are lost now with people comparing two diffrent intercoolers.

Things you will need to complete the XS Power Kit
1 90deg Elbow 2" on one side and 2.5 on the other
1 2.75" to 2.5" Straight Reducer
1 short ram intake
1 turboxs style bov

The intercooler dimensions are 28" long x 9.5" x 3.5"

The only mods you must make are to the front bumper cover, and you must remove the factory bumper support.

For The hoses please talk to Garret @ WorldOne Performance. Just let him know Mark Thompson sent you and he will hook you up.

I'm sorry, I forget some people get confused when trying to talk about two different products. It takes mad sk1llz to think about two things at once. Maybe get a scratch piece of paper and draw diagrams, and take notes to follow, or just stop complaining about it.

What's the big deal. This same thing has been posted 10x. Why do you think we need to read it again?

At least my kit comes complete, unlike some other crap kits. Sorry you paid too much, no need to slam other products you know nothing about. Who cares about buying a smaller battery, plenty of people, like me, already have a small battery. I run an motorcycle battery. Gains to be found by loosing weight. My batt weight about 9lbs, not the 50lb boat anchor you have. So, how much extra did you have t0 spend to get all the stuff needed to install? Couplers are not cheap. How about the hose clamps? I say your kit sucx ballz.

If anyone needs help figuring out how I feel about hayabutta, PM me. I'll be glad to help!

Since SSAuto does not have a phone, I recommend sending an email to Tammie. She is a sweety pie. Tell her Scott said hi, and do not mention Marks name, you will get a better price

I dont think the kit "sucx ballz" but one thing about it is, i think the pipes should be wrapped (atleast the cold side) because their stainless and the cold side sits right above the turbo.
