Warning! *highly addictive*
Yeah.... if you wanna wake that little 2.0 up. Get this! The power through all the gears is amazing! Only problem and I believe itâ€™s the car, is she still runs flat at 5500-6000. Get this with the E85 conversation and you should be out keeping up with mustangs. I need more parts! Ryan from customer service... (give that guy a raise)
Just buy it already!
For months I went back and forth on if it should buy this kit or not. I couldn't be any happier! I bought this kit with the bigger throttle body and OMG! WHAT A DIFFERENCE! The sounds of the turbo really sing with new intake. I have an AWD ATS and this kit is definitely what I needed to really make the car feel as sporty as it looks! You will be happy install was very simple and the first drive when you hear the whistle from the turbo when you get on it you will thank yourself!
The car finally feels like it had the fortitude it should have had from the factory. The hesitation on acceleration is gone and power delivery is smooth and swift. Install was relatively easy. Definitely helped having a second set of hands working on the top side while installing the downpipe. Had to bend the trans bracket to align the holes but nothing a vice, hammer, and some effort couldn't fix.
Fun while it lasted
Engine went boom. Running E85 tune. 2 pistons went
Great product, great sound, lots of gains. Stock bolts were a little difficult to get off and the intake was a tight fit. All in all, It all worked out and I'd recommend the stage 1 to anyone who wants to see what the ATS is really capable of. You can really tell how much pride ZZP puts into their products. 10/10.
