anyone heard of or seen anyone running this kit before it was recommended by a friend but seems a little cheesy to me? http://www.godspeedproject.com/store/index...products_id=342

Ive made some ghetto rigged shit go fast for cheap!!! But usually other peoples civics....not my S2000 lol :p
If your a baller on a budget and got the itch go for it, just for the love over god dont skimp on tunning. Cheap turbos will blow oil eventually, cheap piping, and intercoolers migth not flow after X amount of hp, and cheap manifolds and downpipes will eventually crack or not flow for shit, but skimpin on tunning equals blown motor! Not to mention u need it to optimise the lacking setup.
Just keep in mind ppl are selling used inlinepro kits for around $2500.
And actually looking at it most of that stuff is cheap but fairly reliable at least....turbonetics turbo, rev hard mani (sucks but wont crack), and i think godspeed intercooler and piping is ok too... again just keep in mind used ILP kits and other PFAB kits and such are going for cheap used

The kits sucks, thats what I started with. You will replace every important part w/ quality parts as they break. Might as well do it right the first time.

Some folks have had better experiences than others. Me? i've had TWO godspeed kits. Although when i had mine, i had the brand name parts like the Godspeed intercooler kit *which is huge in the dsm/suby world so its not chit* Revhard manifold *which inline pro used* tial wastegate, turbonetics 50 trim t3/t4, upgraded to a real greddy RZ. the one that comes is junk. so just opt not to have it and buy a real one.

Their Godspeed waste gates aren't good so just get the tial 38mm wg option. My first kit i ran 10 psi and put down 301 whp. Sold it for cash and then a year later bought another one and put down 330whp 12 psi.

the first time i had the crappy rc 750's.. and aem ems...next time i went with the ID 1000's and Aem ems.

There are small things in the kit that I upgraded and they were the return line, and some of the brass fittings to steel. but over all if you want a good 300whp kit for cheaper than a greddy kit with room to upgrade, then this is the kit to have.

One of my buddies bought the same kit and had PTUNING install it. Toan told me that it was easier than installing the greddy kit and had way more potential. That guy is Still boosted with zero issues. its been a couple years now almost.

Its not no Ptuning kit, or Inline kit or such. But it's a great one.

I've boosted both times for roughly 4 grand.

that's including new ems, new injectors, and new kit. Installation was easy. Nothing needs to be moved. and it's all bolt on.

OH... pft.. if you're lookin at kevin's kit, then i'd suggest grab that one. He's got the good stuff...precision turbo, i think tial wg? :ponder: precision intercooler ect.

I think the other stuff is still godspeed like the downpipe and the dumptoob and what not. but it's all legit.

If I recall its a good price too...If anything, that would be the kit to get if you're not trying to spend to much money but get some good stuff. just take the pipes and clean em up really nice and ur good to go.

i would recommend going with another kit- it is basically a revhard kit with a better turbo. i bought the revhard kit a couple years ago and have replaced 80% of the parts because they were cheap or broke. build it right the first time- don't be like me lol.

thanks :thumbup:

Yes everything is upgraded to precision, tial, synapse, eaton, aeroquip etc

The only thing still revhard is the mani, dp & dump tube which is just as good as Inline pro's stuff IMO.

The revhard manifold is not bad but its is not as good as the inline pro log. FYI, the inline pro log has longer runner, however you may need to notch your frame where the rev hard you may not.

At the end of the day they are both log manifolds and one costs 2x as much NIB. I did not have to notch the frame to fit my 5857.
