Anyone know anything about this? What is the difference with the TPC kit that sells for 10gs?

Well if you'd like to be the guinea pig to try a bunch of generic parts to make a 485HP Boxster with front mounted intercooler and re-locate your front mounted battery, be my guest. Let me know how well it works out.

Looks great

If this system is legit and doesn't blow your engine (not likely), I would buy two .

Exactly. The phrase "you get what you pay for" applies

I highly doubt you are going to get 485 hp out of a low boost application. This is very generic, as you can tell by the battery relocation kit...I'm sure it gets in the way mounted in the frunk.

Remember, if it sounds too good to be true...

You will note that the 485hp top end is with 25+psi of boost. Someone needs to install one, crank it all the way open and see which blows up first, the kit or the engine.
