depends on how much you like to change plugs....I'll go ahead and tell you it's a PITA with the incon kit....I got it to where I could do it in about 1 1/2 hours #6 is downright brutal to get to and #3 isn't much fun either, however a nice selection of sparkplug sockets is nice (specially the one that has a "wrenching" area at the top of it, so you can turn it with a wrench. All that being said.....the incon kit is AWESOME....almost INSTANT spool and it sounds AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was on my 331 and I wish I wouldn't have sold it now but that's not here or there.

In the end it really boils down to what kind of price you can get each for....that's my $.02

regarding the sparkplugs:
i only had problems with #6. #6 took as long to change as all of the other 7 together.

Yes the sparkplugs are a PITA. Whenever you have to remove the turbo manifolds for anything, you have to pull the whole engine because it's way to hard to remove them with the engine installed. Otherwise, the kit is awesome and stealthy.

the ddmi kit was a predecessor to the incon kit. it had smaller turbos and was rated to 600hp, iirc.
as far as telling the difference between the two, you may have better luck asking that at turbomustangs.com.

Did you have to notch the frame rail? If not then you either have one of the very few 600tti Incon kits or you have a DDMI. They both use the same manifolds more or less, maybe even similar intercoolers(I forget ) but some of the plumbing is different between the two.

You can run mid to high nines with an 800 incon kit with the right setup. The turbos used in the kit aren't your average turbos. They are ball bearing and spool VERY quick. Garrett GT series.....model GT2871R. Try to price one of these turbos to buy.....last I looked a new one was around $1600 for just 1

I thought they used some special housing which is what made a turbo for an Incon kit even more expensive than one would expect. But do people really need to replace the entire turbos on those kits?

I love my Incon kit! my 306 makes 563rwhp/610rwtq at the moment. Plugs are a pain in the ass but if you take your time and stay calm, its not that bad. I have changed them several times already.

I loved my Incon kits. A lot of the local guys had never heard of them before and I always just told them that the car had an Incon cold air kit and exhaust, lol. Worked very well at night during the street races since the manifolds were black, god I miss that kit. Plugs got me riled up a few times, but I didnt have to change them that much, I really enjoyed driving my Incon car.

Yes, they had special housings. I don't even think I priced an actual INCON turbo with the special housings. I was just letting the O.P. know the turbos arent your average T3/T4 turbo.

Too bad Incon went out of business.. I'm surprised no one has really re-produced the headers? Or has any company since tried?

unfortunately, I doubt you will ever see a kit like the Incon kit built for a pushrod 302 motor again. Were they perfect, no...but if you wanted an OEM quality turbo set up - they were and are your only option

They used manifolds and were a "copy" of the DDMI manifolds to begin with. There would be no point in copying the manifolds unless someone went through all the trouble of copying a lot of other things since the turbos themselves were somewhat unique to the application as well. 2-3 years ago someone told me that a person was working on re-introducing the kit to the market and "I would be surprised to find out who was working on that". I am guessing that attempt fell through since so much time has passed and I have yet to be "surprised".
