Interested to hear also. They look to be a replica of Cosworth TGV's. I bought some a couple of days ago.

I have them on my car.

They are an improvement over the cosworth.

The gasket is dovetailed into the housing so it can't slip out during install.

Everything bolts up nicely I've got the bolt kit as well.

On the GD STi's that started as side feeds you need to slot the intake manifold and go to a top feed setup, but it's easy enough.

Highly suggested.

I had them put on my new motor over the winter. I like the setup and the price was right (got in on the original group buy). My builder was a little concerned about the injectors not sealing well and leaking but 2500+ miles later with 5 auto crosses done already I have had no issues. One problem we ran into was during the install one of the inserts that are formed into it came loose and the bolt was not able to be torqued down all the way. Since I wasn't the one doing it I can't rule out that the bolt wasn't cross threaded or burred (reused the original bolts). I haven't seen/heard much about this being a problem with them so I really suspect an issue with install more than a defective part. That said there are enough bolts holding all that together that it isn't a problem having the one not being torqued. It will, however, be an issue if/when I have to take them off for any reason in the future. That aside I have been very happy with them and the car has been doing great!

So they come with oring gaskets right? I was looking at these on eBay and they didn't show the complete kit. Just wanted to make sure.

Yup, no need for any gaskets with these. You don't need anything extra unless you opt to replace the bolts at the same time. If you are looking on eBay make sure they are for the correct year for your car. The GD/GR ones have different gasket setups because of the plastic intake manifold.

It's all based on Plastic vs metal intake manifold.

Most kits are for the metal intake since the plastic isn't as common.

There should be o-ring grooves in the top and bottom with o-rings in them if you have the metal intake manifold.

I am waiting to install these myself. I'm gonna reuse the old bolts since they are only about 5k miles old. Any reason why I shouldn't?

Also for those that have these, did you notice a big difference with the temperature of the intake manifold?

i picked these up when my engine blew last year, handed them over to my engine builder and heard no complaints with the install and they've been holding up great.
