Elite Rotary Shop V-Mount Experience?

I could not find any threads or posts referencing experiences with this kit. Curious if anybody here has commissioned one of these kits from Elite and can speak to their experience with it.
- Performance?
- Core type?
- Fitment?
- Quality of ducting?
- Sacrifices (A/C?, Battery?, etc..)
- Clearance for radiator?
- Radiator modified for easy draining?

I've seen pictures of it, but haven't gotten first hand information or seen it in person. Here's the page for it -

https://www.eliterotaryshop.com/air-...d-v-mount.html

My concern is it's $5 shy of $3,000 and you get get any number of the Japanese V-mount kits for less. HKS is about $2000, RE-Amemiya is about $2500, Greddy about $2800.

I can't comment about the Elite VMount either... but I will say, a lot of the Japanese tuners have missed the mark in recent years on product. But GReddy hit the nail on the head with this. They really set the standard with their new V-Mount kit. The core, the radiator, the cast end tanks / pipes, the ducting - it's really the total package.

This is a big ticket item and two critical components of your engine. Don't think saving $200 is doing yourself any favors. Skip the cool shift **** and get the GReddy VMount.

Thank you, gents. The word I received is that the Greddy kit is on back order until March currently, so I figured I might as well investigate the quality of some of the other players in this space. And Elite does make a kick *** set of intake manifolds. But praise for the Greddy kit is seemingly without end.

March will be here before we all know it.

Wait for it. It's worth it.

Or maybe even reach out to RHDJapan.com

Just make sure you order the right one. If you're running stock turbos and an Efini Y-Pipe you're gonna want the kit that fits the Efini Y-Pipe, which is technically the 1996+. However, you may require the older A/C extension harness if you're running A/C. BEST bet is to contact a vendor to make sure you get the right stuff. It's not rocket science, but it is nuanced.

Good luck!

At RHD Japan the RE Amemiya and KnightSports kits are comparable prices and are top quality.

However neither is as complete as the Greddy Kit (i would say it is the best value kit by far)........or you could go all out and buy the Revolution one.......

If you are in a huge rush we have one of the HKS V-mounts in stock. I would recommend that you just wait for the Greddy since it is the most complete, best fitting kit on the market

Thank you for letting me know. I'm not really in a rush, just figured I would try to learn more about some local options since it wasn't immediately available. I am going to take yours and others advice on this one. Thanks!
