The kit only has 5k miles since install. There asking $4,000.00 Was just curious what everyone thought of this kit and if its a good deal?? Thanks for the help :D

Sounds good. As long as it's in good shape. Yea it only has 5k on it but, that could be 5k miles of 1/4 mile time... HAHaha.. j/k. I'd check it out first, make sure there is no shaft play. Ask what the tunes are for? Make sure they're compatible with your car. If the car it came off of had the boost a pump and stock fuel pump, I'm sure you'll be fine.

Just ask them a few questions man. Does it come with injectors? Sounds legit....

The kit does come with the injectors, its the full kit. He wants to trade the car in to get something that his wife can drive. Hes a fellow military member and is trustworthy the car hasn't seen a track and has been babied. The plan is to go to the shop and have them swap everything over and tune it right there. He knows a good shop that hooks up military members as well so im looking at $500 for install.

That sounds good. As long as your REALLY trust this person, and you're not gonna get bent, do it. Also, make sure you can afford it, and not get broke. Someone else will come and give their advice in a bit as well... I say, if it really is in great condition do it. What year car did it come off of? what year is yours?

Im pretty sure the custom tune is useless to you. Might even be worse than a mail order tune. The tune is setup for his car and any extra mods he may have and designed around any lil differences his car may have from another. I wouldnt use a custom tune from a different car.

Same car, but your car could be a little different. I'd still run the tune it comes with, make sure he gets the hand held unlocked first. But, I would also get a new custom tune as soon as possible. Or at least have a shop make sure the A/F and timing are reasonable.

HeavyGT Runs the 2.6KB and a few other members have as well. I'm sure one of them will chime in eventually. I personally like the KB blowers, but I don't have one on my car.

Same. I think Kenne is the best. I'm sure you can use the tune it comes with to just just the car for a bit, to get it warmed up and check for leaks. But highly recommend getting a custom tune.

I plan on having it custom tune when its installed regardless just to CYA. That and so i can get the max potential out of my car and be on the safe side.

Really i wonder how he likes the KB. Do you know what kind of numbers it can put down?? The guy said when he put it on the dyno after the custom tune he was sitting right at 500 RWhp.
