    Thats an atp copy. Very commonly used across the pond, and over here too. Gets mixed reviews, but thats prob because the yanks cant tune for ****. All that would need is its faces skimmed flat and it would be a winner. Imo

    GT28's are usually internally gated so you would need a blanking plate for the 2 bolt gate fitting unless planning on going external gate of course... the position of the gate would require it to be pitched over a bit I think as most I have seen hit the head in that position (I had a similar issue on my T3 log mani)

    I especially like these bullet points in the description:

    Increases torque and horse power over the entire RPM range.
    Increases exhaust flow and throttle response significantly.

    ...in context to what? lol... bolt that to a 20v with a gt28 then yeah... its gonna do something like this ;P (except really low down due to later spool on a bigger turbo)

    Cheap enough that if it cracks then you can buy another
