A product aimed at the wallets of the unknowing! It will tear up the spider gears in a heart beat.

It's junk. I've did A LOT of research on them and they are one of the biggest wastes of money out there. I have read so many testimonies on how people are dissapointed and how it didn't fit in like Phantom Grip said. Nobody is happy with them, they send you the wrong springs for it and it doesn't work (still a one-wheel-wonder).

For instance, I read a testimony from a guy with a Probe GT that purchased one. He said that it didn't fit right in like phantom grip had claimed, he had to grind on a few different parts of his transaxle. I also read a testimony from a guy with a Mazda MX3. He got it in (with minimal grinding) and it didn't work. he said that phantom grip had sent him the wrong springs for it and he would still only spin one wheel. He had called the company and told them about it, and they SAID they would send him new springs (he had last updated his site 4 monthes after it and they still hadn't showed up yet). BUT he still had to rip his tranny down again and put the new springs in. Also, the part number for a 944 is "custom" and with a part number like that I would be VERY skeptical of purchasing it.

I know you're itching for some LSD (me too), but there is a guy with a trench coat on that stands on the corner and sells it. I would much rather see you spend more money on something like a Quaife or a Kaaz than buy a POS.

wow...good price on it. Too bad they have no pic for me to quack at. Do you know if it's a 1-way, 1.5-way, or a 2-way?
