Default Think this would be worth the money?

I know it'* an ebay auction, but I want to discuss the performance per dollar aspect of it.

I'm not looking to gain performance, I'm looking to control KR first and foremost. To me, this core looks a bit small and probably not all that effective, but other opinions, I think are in order

Looks very shadey. Don't buy it. I can't fathom how you can fit such a device into the existing structure of the intake without causing extreme weak points.

If you really want to reduce KR start by drilling the t-stat and get rockers. Go even a step further with an intercooler. The single stack ones from ZZP save you a few bucks and are made for just that reason.

That'* what I was thinking. I can't even see how they fit that core into the manifold w/o hacking the top somehow. Or how they effectively sealed the manifold and the coolant pipes.

My first thought is how on earth you can flow enough air through a restrictive core without the core being larger than the LIM inlet to begin with.

Think about it.

If you have KR, fix it. No bandaids.
I wouldn't touch that restrictive POS for a fraction of that price.
