    The interest would be good I feel if the inlet and outlet are in the right places hence less outlay with the fitting etc.

    Also from reading about the group buy one theres a few worrying comments about it not looking substancial enough for high power outputs?

    Really?

    From what I read there was nothing that said that.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Basically if your aiming for a high tune then this IC wont be up to it...
    This is an extract from the group buy thread

    Not looking to slag off nor start any arguments but after reading that I wasnt so sure? what woud be your opinion on this as you'd be the better person to comment on it with you having one fitted?

    Obviously its better than the stock item and looked good, and no one has evidence about whether the IC menioned in this post is any better, but surely my point about the inlet/outlets being in the right place will cut down on costs of fittings etc?
