Paul, if you're money crunching....then you're in the wrong game. You pay to play. But, good luck on a cheap TMIC. APS and Spearcos will run you high 800s and low grand area. Perrin's was only mid 700s like a TurboXS TMIC. But, a TurboXS won't work on a STI. The pics are kinda crappy, because it was rainy out yesterday and it was getting dark out quick. I'll still have to get a good pic of it installed. But look at how much thicker the perrin is.....crazy
Edit: I forgot to answer this earlier. No, I did not get a boost drop. Its the same boost levels and it actually feels like I have a better throttle responce now.
