intake headers and exhaust

i wanna get the basic i/h/e setup for my car and thats it. I found this deal on ebay but it's kind of cheap. I was wondering if anyone heard any feedback on these.

I know NOPI is a respectable company so most likely the product isn't completely crap.

I'd be very suspicious of that seller. First look at their ID history. Strange that a huge company like them concentrates their sales on die-cast cars, used to be called priceumlow and doesn't have an eBay store or a link to their web site. Did you do any research?

More to the point, I can't find a "NOPI's #1Number One Brand POWER PACK stage 1" kit for your car on their website. Something seems very fishy to me. Fraud is a word that comes to mind. But then it's your money, ahve at it.

^ also found he has sold an intake...

I just called the # custumer service # that he had on the link and it went to nopi. I talked to them and they said that this ie their seller.
Anyone heard any negatives or positives on this exhaust, headers and intake? If i get this i will switch out the air filter and put a K & N filter in there.
