Unlike a CSC or roots blower your boost does not fall off at the shift (because those are based on rpm).
if it'* w/in 300 RPM, that wouldn't be all that bad. I'm not trying to knock the kit, just interested in how it'* going to work out.

you will only have to wait for it to spool in first gear anyway from a dead stop anyway.

LMFAO!

Too bad it has that ugly clip that sticks out of the exhaust. Man, maybe I should buy one of these for kicks...or two for both pipes!

Hold on a sec, there is probably a way to mount it inside your exhuast pipe so its not visible. It would be a funny prank to play on friends (yeah guys, i have a hidden turbo).

What about the 96 owners and our pcm issues?

96 will be the odd S2 out as we dont have access to the PCM. If in the future we do get access then we can support it. Not sure I would hold my breath though :(

if they moved the turbo forward 2-3ft then there would be no problems running with mufflers or just the dule outlets. The muffles should not be much of a restriction because of the turbo restriction before it and having a muffles can quiet it down is you want more of the sleeper sound till you stomp on it
