    The price of the Pro-Series Power Cooler Kit is higher than the Performance Power Cooler Kit because of the aluminum tubes and the Billet Blow-off Valve. We will offer an Upgrade Kit that will consist of those parts. They should be available in the coming weeks. I'll be sure to post when they're available.

    And what about those of us who melted pipes using nothing but their components?

    Chris, I'd privately call them, and discuss the price that you've already paid to get the aluminum ones. If not a refund, then go for a credit?

    I wonder which companies upgrade kit will be cheaper?

    Rxpnoob i dont think they will be making the intake pipe aluminum as they dont melt but maybe they will change the rear exhaust kit to aluminum.

    dont count on Riva helping I called them and they said the upgrade kit will be around 500.00 it will have the larger blow off valve and metal exhaust and IC pipe I ask about splitting the kit and I was told that would not happen maybe later on

    all I know is that company that get parts from China sure is looking good

    which company that gets their parts from China, don't they all? I would be willing to bet you a donut that the parts that you melted were made there

    I'm going to see what some local shops will charge to make me some intercooler mandrel ss or al pipes.

    Hoss if they weld them together will there be slag or anything inside the tubes restricting the flow?

    The company ( I tried to find the thread and name) is the one that Jerry decided not to carry their products in his store and the company chose to make there feelings public about Jerry and his decsion, that is where the China comment comes from if I had to do it over again I would like to try them over the Riva for my intercooler

    I would like to find them again if anyone remembers I would like to get the metal pipes from them
