If you have any sorts of mufflers I'm sure it is louder, or the CAI noises would be way louder too.

If it dies, you get smoke out of the exhaust. You replace it, and move on. There is no perminate damage. You just go spy hunter style until you replace it. If for some reason you drove a ton with it out, you may need to pop off the downpipes/turbine housings and clean the oil out, but that would take a bit.

Considering your local, swing by and they can show you.
just did this two weeks ago on accident, car ran for about 25 seconds without the pump running. It made a mess and oil leaked out of the joints of the Corsa exhaust and from the waste gate pipes. The car smoked for about 20 miles or so and the next day oil and condensation sludge was found under the car. I powersprayed off the bottom of the car (have one here for detailing) and then for the next 100 miles the Corsa exhaust tips had a nasty color that after a few cleanings went away.

Not fun at all, but it wasn't THAT bad.

We are a short drive away and have installed countless systems on CA cars. PM me your cars specs and what your intentions are for it. We'll see what we can do for you.

Cali is a big area too. I know several shops in Cali have done them. Hell the owner of Starkweather runs one on his car and makes 1100+rwhp.

Thanks for all the info, sounds like there is no need to worry about the pump. I saw the kit on a car over the weekend and other than the intake tube, the pump was all i really saw from up top. The owner loved the car with this kit and only had great things to say about AGP. Might have to take a drive by and chat with them.

You can even blend the tube in as well ,and once I build my box for the oil pump return you won't even be able to see it or hear it, but there is still a few tell tell signs left, atleast for now

Tap the valve cover and return the oil under the cover. Then it just looks like a CAI with a catchcan.

Nice the a catchcan/PCV system is included. The little things like that save you a lot over other options.

Yup been thinking of doing that but on the other side don't really want to remove the valve cover to tap, or I believe the other trick is Vaseline on the bit to catch shavings, and bigg tim you can't go wrong with the agp kit, it comes with everything you need, the only thing it doesnt come with that i would recommend would be a boost controller, and guages to track your air fuel mixture

Dont need a boost controller unless you want to adjust boost, but it is a great idea to add one.
