Candy, I think this was handled in the first page of the post, BUT, I think that the products in the above mentioned site, are ok for a single individual who has fabbed some of his own stuff. I do not think that there is one item on that website that I thought was made good enough to make on a basis for retail to the public. I am sorry, but IMHO, for the money there are MUCH higher quality stuff. I probably just pissed in several peoples wheaties bowls, but I am sorry..... That is the way I feel and my opinion.
I do think however that there are several companies out there...Bell included, who do a wonderful job at what they do... Sometimes you get what you pay for....

It has been mentioned above that shrouding the I/C and the remaining free airspace in the tail, will have a positive effect on dropping the I/C temps. When you dyno a car, you must have TONS of air flow over the I/C!!
I am only pushing Bell I/C, because I have purchased one, It works, as I have seen it with my own eyes, it is VERY resonable... considering the other I/C's out there, and I really liked dealing with Gerhart at Bell.... I have a few more pics of the I/C next to my old Koklyn uinit that I will post.

I WILL SAY THIS.... I still believe that for a CIS car, the Koklyn unit is still the best I/C out there for a otherwise stock car. I had to go with a bigger one as I have so many mods now.... I outgrew the Koklyn..

Pics to follow
I agree with the exception of the build quality of the IC. I own a fab shop and teach welding/fabbing at a local college and the IC's are made very well.. .. I doubt the quality is the issue maybe design is more of the issue.. those 2 get mixed up often on the forums
