This nighttime drive in ~20 degree F weather shows the kit's cold start, idle, driveability, boost and low end torque characteristics.

looks fast, i dont like the sound of your blowoff valve though. it sounds kinda loud in the video and makes your car sound like a squeaking door. can't wait to start seeing more 330's with this kit and more vids

car looks like it's running strong.. I'm over in Waterbury and have had my AA stage 1 setup installed recently but I do not drive it during the winter.. headers will be installed during the spring.. we should meet up somewhere in between when the nicer weather rolls around.. I would love to check out your car.

thanks for sharing, runs look great only however I would recommend a new blow off valve as that one sounds a little bit odd. I guess everybody has their own opinion about blow off valves but to me I find the greddy type-rs and the likes (TurboXS-H RFL etc) to sound a lot cleaner and badass at the same time.

yup! i agree. get rid of that damn bov and get a new one. I love the sound of the turboxs-h rfl. but it doesnt hold boost too well though. oh well, thats a different topic. :)

Folks, the kit uses a bypass valve, not a blow-off valve. The video skews the sound of it slightly, so it doesn't quite sound like that in reality.
