wondering the same thing. curious to know if the quality is just as good as the sinister kit or if it is a kit that shouldn't even be considered.

We can get you setup with the sinister kit. We also offer some great kits from SDP and Wherli. Let me know if you are interested and I'll get you the info.

Thanks! Mainly looking at the kit that Rudys offers because of the pricing. Didn't seem logical to spend a ton of money on sinister or other brand if there is no quality difference and all parts hold up the same. Im very inexperienced in this area but was looking ahead at the fact that if I saved money by buying a cheaper kit that is the same quality as the more expensive kit I could put the saved money towards other performance parts. Seeking more info as to whether or not any of the kits are better quality or preferred over the others.

I highly recommend going with the SDP EGR delete tube and an up pipe. This is a more expensive setup but you will have a better setup. What I have seen with the heavy duty egr caps that block the up-pipe is they allow the up-pipe to twist and crack the bellows. They you are having to do an unplanned repair.

The kit rudys sells that I have pulled up on ebay has the exact same parts as the sinister delete kit with intake tube for $825.00 on the sinister site. The kit rudys offers is $219.99. Its the same exact kit, im just looking for someone to justify that the sdp kit is or isn't better quality parts than what rudys offers in their kit. Throw in the up pipe and your looking at $1220 for the sinister kit opposed to the $470 you could have invested in the kit from rudys. Its all showing the same exact parts list, im just wanting someone to shoot me some honest info on the quality difference of the parts rather than try to make a dollar on someone who isn't as educated in this field.

You also get the quality for what you pay for.

The Sinister kit I have now costs something like $365 ($250 when I bought mine) throw in a up-pipe if you don't want to use the thick block plate in the kit for around $225.
I liked the idea of retaining the stock look and the grid heater.
I'm not having any issues at this time, that doesn't mean I won't.
If I have problems I'll just have to fix it, if I don't I've saved a few $$$.

If I was much younger, raced around and wanted as much power as I could get, I would have gone with something like SDP (a provin quality name) and a LB7 up-pipe.

If your dead set on Rudy's kit and since you have not gotten a positive response on this thread and the others you or someone else has asked the same question.
Please give us some feedback on what you think if you end up going with Rudy's.

Very tempted to give it a try just for kicks. My main concern was I didn't want to take the cheaper route just to find out the parts were made of lesser quality metal or if the kit was known to have fitment issues. Then again I didn't want to pay $500 more for a name brand kit of the same exact parts and hear of others really liking the cheaper kit after I spent the money on the more expensive. May give the cheaper kit a try and post my results.
