Looks good and it helps cornering, not a HUGE difference but you will be able to feel it

You should just buy the Boss one if you are going to upgrade to the Boss Manifold....that way you have one that fets your needs now and down the road....no need in actually wasting money

Yeah, I bought mine directly from Steeda for $180. They even sent me a license plate frame and called me weeks later asking if I was satisfied with my purchase.
