I paid $1450.00 shipped to my door. I didn't receive any type of discount and I have any affiliation with the company. Im just here to help people boost on a budget.

Now you will need a management I'm using Emanage Ultimate and you will need injectors

I got wrx 440cc injectors which are plug and play and they are cheap.

Make sure they are 02-05 your looking for Denso 440cc top feed

So all in all your looking at $1450.00 for the kit +600-700 for a Emanage or some type of system + 150 for injectors = 2,200 - 2,300 for a full turbo kit running 8psi of reliable boost.

Now if your gonna do a fuel pump, head gasket, apr studs, or a fuel return it will be more but it all varies on the power you wanna make.

Wow that manifold looks great! It's leaps and bounds better than what they used to offer. I heard about XS power in the past and there was even a guy on the forums who used their kit back in 2011 with good results.

Back then they had quality control issues and some guys had their turbo go out in a year while others didn't have a single problem. It was really a hit or miss with this kit, but it looks like they really stepped their game up.

Also I thought they went under a couple of years ago. I think it was in 2013 their forums shut down and their kits completely disappeared from ebay. Alot of people complained because they had alot of really useful information there, but I guess it doesn't matter now. Even if they did go under it looks like they came back better than before

I would still replace the turbo, wastegate, and bov for a name brand unit just for the piece of mind though. Anyways I guess I know what manifold I'll get next if I ever have any problems with my SRT manifold

The manifold does look a lot better than there original design. Props to them for making adjustments! Agreed with blkaltezza, I would opt out of there BOV, Wastegate, oil feed/return lines and turbo. My .02 though. My CX manifold is still doing its job (knock on wood).. I cant complain!

The intercooler kit came today and it couldn't be better. The intercooler is nice and big but not so big that its gonna creat pressure drop. The hot side piping is 2.5 and the cold side is 2.75 which is the same as the stock intake tube so it will be perfect for the MAF readings since nothing is changing.

I was thinking the same thing, the filter and intercooler looks exactly like the ones on the CX Racing website and even the piping has the exact same bends. I wouldn't be surprised if it is the CX Racing intercooler kit. It doesn't really matter though, in the end it's all just all piping

Yea I happen to be using all cx piping now as well as exhaust parts. Sold the Intercooler as I just wanted the piping, but was identical.

The piping is great and love the fact that its all ready to just clamp together.

I think my favorite part of the kit so far is the manifold and the intercooler. The construction of the intercooler is very heavy duty and love the fact that the crash bar can stay in place

hahaha that sucks. From what I've read, theres quite a few people on here who don't post how to's or threads about a turbo build because of the relentless PM's.
