    Well the more expensive one looks like it's bigger, So depends how far you want to go with power I imagine! If you want to push silly figures then the bigger one I would think would be the better choice.

    I'm not too clued up mind so if i'm wrong i'm sure someone will correct me and be a little clearer as to the advantages and dis-advantages to each kit!

    The more expensive one has larger pipework at 63mm for increased airflow compared to 57mm i believe.

    They are both made by the same company TX Autosport so have a look at their website

    Ryans right, £399 has 63mm pipework (2.5") and larger intercooler, £399 has an 80mm core large intercooler, cheaper one has 65mm core.

    if yours is the Gsi then installation wont be as hard, if your like me and have a coupe with the large piping and large intercooler, then be prepared to have some fun.

    along with being bigger the second one has the airflow centred on the intercooler so is more efficient, ideally for best use of the cooler it wants to run diagonally but the first one has it at the bottom, probibly the least effective fmic design.

    still i fitted one recently so didnt put me off, 2 holes to drill and fans to wire in and the rest is easy, if your not after anything more than around 300bhp the first one is fine.
