hey everyone!!
Finally after waiting about 2 months, the Kinetix SSV Mainfold V.5 is here. I have to give big credit to Kinetix this time for a great product look wise, and performance wise. It was worth every single penny.
Installing it was not easy, it was a bit hard. it took about 2 hrs for it to get done. The lower plenum had to come out as well, so the engine was fully exposed to its outside enviroment, and one must be carefull not to drop a bolt or screw in it.

It simply looks beautiful, i think i need to invest in a See Thru hood...lol
Its bling bling, everyone will give you compliments for it. it will leave an awe on the faces of those who see it for the first time.
The strut bar fits with a lot of clearance over the mainfold.
Performance wise...i was able to take it for a pin right after it was done. The response on the car is a lot quicker now, the engine sounds smooth on low rpm's and screams on higher rpm's. When i say scream, i dont mean exhaust scream, i mean you can feel and hear the engine sound coming from right infront of you.
Acceleration is a lot quicker, high speed drives are soooooooo smooth. you can actually feel and hear the air flow.
gotta give it a 10/10
its a bit expensive, but its worth it.

here are the pics.

Driving impressions after install? What are the specs on your wheels? The smog gods over here in CA won't like that IM at all.

Great Job! Now all you need is a FI system to kick some serious ass. What exhaust are you running with now?
