Installed this recently. I do not see much information on it, but here is my experience. The kit kept leaking bad. However, Mishimoto replaced the banjo bolts with the spherical looking ones and that solved the leak completely. The install was a pain because I have the CVFabrication Race Intercooler, so there was not a mounting point to use like the directions said.
My tips: hand tightening all of the hardware attached to the sandwich plate before putting it on car. This will reassure that you do not crossthread anything. Also, do yourself a favor and buy a 10 an wrench. Wear clothes you would not mind throwing away. You will also want to tighten the oil filter a little more than the traditional hand tightening. Overall, it looks aggressive, performs as expected, Mishimoto has great customer service, and the Non thermostatic kit would have been just as a great of an option.

Hello I replaced all my stock parts with Mishimoto 2 years ago (radiator, oil cooler with stat, intercooler, catch can). The hoses lasted about and year and leaked like sieve. Had some new hoses fabricated and all is now well. I also added an oil bypass filter from AMS Oil. I run Royal Purple oil and have gotten great oil analysis tests, MPG went 27 to 32 in city and up to 37 highway.
