My Ride: ESS TS2+ ZHP
What's your definition of great success? How much hp are you hoping to gain and do YOU think it will be worth the price of those parts?

Honestly, some people are going to tell you it's worth it and others are going to tell you it's a total waste. I'm one of those who believe it's a total waste. It's a lot of money for small gains. I certainly ended up spending a LOT more money and time on my mods but I also got a LOT of performance. Ultimately though, only you can decide if you will be getting your money's worth.

The shark injector really helps with making your engine respond a little faster and gives you a bit more power. The biggest increase of having an intake is that it will help you save fuel. Therefore it will pay for it self over time. Same thing with pulleys, while they do not give you a ton of power, they free up some speed from the heavy pulleys you are replacing. Over all, they are worth investing in. Let me know if I can help you out with a package quote.
