This is some thing I would love to see. Take the cina knock off's and test them against there real deal counter parts from intake manifolds to heads. I would like to see just how they stack up or fall short. lots of people buy um cause they don't know what there getting so how about a nice little break down so we know just how much we may be giving up to save a buck!

thats what I'm talking about! The knock off companys tout that there just as good so I would love to see it heads up if some one says there the best there should be proof.

I agree! trouble is that alot depends on the skill of the person using the dyno and tuning each combo to reach its max.

The Zooms are junk and will be trashed in less than 10,000 miles. Ask me how I know? You could change your gear drive over to one of the quiet gear drives.

are the "quiet" ones, quiet? or quieter? its hard to even hear anything under the hood like an exaust leak, or adjusting the valves. and for years now it never fails,... at a light some helpful citizen will pull up & say," sounds like you need power steering fluid",  ahhhhhhg!!!!
