in Japan they are only 600yen(about $5). They come in different sizes to match your tailpipe diameter. IF you get the right one it is loud as hell & VERY annoying( like the whissle tips, you all remember BubbRubb right). If it is too small, you will very little to no sound at all.
Sounds nothing like a turbo. That pertucular one he is selling looks like it would work on the 2" dia. pipe.
They are actually quite big sellers in Japan. For the girls with their rides though. Not many guys buy them.

I love how it says "HORSEPOWER MODS". Yeah... a wistle adds about as much horsepowers as a type R sticker.

Actually. It will hurt power, because it weight'* more :P

But put on both that & the sticker & you have a combo that cant be beat.

Can we say "Restricted Exhaust = Reduced Horsepower and increased Horse Manure"?

That sound clip sounds like ricers in Cavaliers/Sunfires with their 2.2 OHV'*, it doesn't sound like a Civic or whatnot

What no BOV? I sure do feel silly for investing in that real turbo when that is all I needed Wait if I put it on my car I'll have a twin-turbo Just be sure to install this gauge with it
