    sold my STS kit with a FMIC ,T-70, MSD BAP, Long tube headers, and a few other things for $3,500.00 . There are so many guys getting rid of there STS kits it's crazy. Just hold out for a good deal.

    Hey Anarchy,
    I am looking at the STS system as well just wondering why you took yours off.

    yeah. I didn't like the kit as much as I liked the incon kit. I had a chance to jump on the twin kit so I got rid of it. No complaints with the STS though, just wasn't for me.

    id like to have 600 rwhp someday right now anything over 450rwhp would be a godo jump from what ive got..i got k&n air intake, flowmaster catback which was enought when i bought the car but now the power is meager and i need a boost. hey anarchy u said theres a twins kit who makes it? would it be better horsepower than the STS?

    One of the cons is the sts system does have about a 1lb pressure drop due to the length of the discharge piping. It is supposed to make that up due to the fact the compressed air entering the intercooler is at a much lower temp (also due to the piping length and airflow under the car). Hope that helps.

    As for the single tailpipe issue, I've seen guys that had 2 tailpipes put on by an exhaust shop. Just a few more pipe bends and some more welding and it can be done. Some people are wrapping the exhaust back to the turbo so it doesn't loose as much heat on the trip back there. twin kit is an incon kit that I picked up when I got rid of my STS kit. I love it.

    There was a guy trying to sale me a STS kit for 3000 the other day but I told him I was'nt interested said it was brand new never unboxed, so they can be bought for under 4k easy. Also a friend of mine and his dad have them one on a 99 GMC Sierra and a 1998 Z-28 and they both run fair. the guy with the Z just needs a better tune but it pulls really hard. Sounds pretty neat kinda like a Grand National.
