My B&G kit is 3 years old also, and sees more pain and suffering then most.

No issues with anything degrading over time.

The Hellion stuff sure does look pretty though...

I don't think you could go wrong with Hellion or B&G.

hellion is great quality and everything is stainless steel besides the intercooler. the cost of materials and labor is a alot more than most other kits which use mild steel and aluminum. All the piping is all made by Bassani and made in america. They are street turbo kits that bolt right up to the factory headers and catback which requires no modifications to the body of the car. The pricing is cheaper than kenne bell! Keep in mind you get a full tubular suspension. On3 and many other companies dont include the price of suspension with their kits

Sorry about the "?". It's just at first u mention bolting the turbo kit to the factory headers, but I guess u meant the factory heads? Also u talk about a suspension coming with the kit? I haven't checked lately, but I think they include a tubular K-member in their non-foxbody kits. Pretty sure they don't include a K member in their foxbody kit which is what the OP is asking about.
