They will increase your straight line grip, but they will wheel hop pretty crazy. You have to launch it without letting them spin, or they'll snap axles like nobody's business. Turning wise they're pretty nuts, you should read around the forums about upgrades (if needed) to the oiling system when using r-comps. Some cars get so much grip they starve the motor of oil and boom. S2000's for example are fine on street tires, but when they're mated with an r-comp or a slick the g-forces they encounter pins the oil against the oil pan and they spin bearings. I had these NT-01's on my old integra and the grip is just crazy. They weren't even hot either, just street driving.

Will review for sure. It was a toss up between it and the Cobb. I can still get the short shifter and make it up to a 51% shorter throw than OEM.

Statistically speaking supposedly... lol

Painted Black





Stock setup





New plate installed




Love it so far! It's really short for being only a 30% reduction. I couldn't imagine going more lol.

What kind of witchcraft is that? I found on my car that the % of throw reduction is kind of understated. I'm at 28% and the next jump is 47%. I feel like at 47% It would be hard to distinguish what gear you were actually in.

It would. Mine is at 30% and it's tight. Pretty odd I know, but it works lol.

Getting a bit more used to the shifter now, still loving it.

After all these mods, the next two will be the Intercooler and top passenger motor mount. I will still be changing out my lower Cobb mount. It helped but not enough to say it was worth buying.

Lol, it's been a while since an update but a lot has happened and more to come. I have done the charge pipes. Like this...



Not in the pic, I also have a oil catch can ordered and a solid downpipe hanger from Rebel Devil. Also have a 93 octane and 100 octane tunes purchased.

This is by no means a big turbo, it's just a stock one on steroids. Just enough to push the power band up and a nice gain for a DD. All in all, this should be it besides a few other bolt-ons. Should be looking around 320/400 numbers.
