Should of come standard on the R53
This kit makes such a difference with how the car feels and responds. One thing I was surprised at is when the power was delivered. I went to Unichip's website because it felt like there was a large flat spot in the power band. Found out, the chip is programmed not just for power but also improved fuel economy. So from a standing start there is a slight increase in power but not enough to justify the price so I thought!!! Once the revs hit about 4500 rpm the real power kicks in, and it pulls hard right up to the red line. After playing around a bit I noticed that delay in power not coming until 4500 rpm's is basically were the rev's fall back to when shifting to the next gear while driving "spiritedly", so it is a constant power when the foot is to the floor. How the chip works is quite impressive. About the intake - the sound of the supercharger is now very audible and sounds AWESOME!! About the exhaust - I was nervous because I ordered the borla race exhaust instead of the street exhaust which means a louder in the cabin. I was happily set at ease, when driving the exhaust does have a noticeable increase noise difference from stock, but there is no drone at any part of the rpm range. When driving at a cruising speed there is no problem at all talking in the cabin and you do not have to raise your voice. Now when you step on it you hear it!!! The exhaust has such a nice sound (not ricey at all). My favourite part about this exhaust is when you let your foot off the gas and you hear the popping like an old V8. The pulley is by far the bang for the buck!!! the power this little supercharger can put out just makes you smile every time. When I got this kit I forgot the pulley removal tool, so for about 4 weeks I just had the intake and exhaust. Then put the pulley and unichip on later so I could really tell the difference of what the pulley can do all by itself. As for the quality of all the parts in the kit, you won't find anything better. Parts will last as long as the car does. Conclusion - It is not over priced as you look at what you are getting and there is such a difference in the car. It really should be sold as a package that you can buy at the dealership!!! So big shout out for MINIMANIA and there awesome products, as well A+ customer service.
