Hey, guys. I thought this was interesting so I would drop some pictures of it.

The long pipes look the same, but the short one is not, and the cores are different. I always thought that one one existed. This one that is in rough condition appears to say Motorsport "cast" into the core. Mine did not. It also says "spearco" on it. Mine say "Turbo city" and Motorsport on a cast tag that was attached to the core.

My old one is the attched photo. http://abacus.sj.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/2...ac/i-2.JPG http://abacus.sj.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/2...ac/i-3.JPG http://abacus.sj.ipixmedia.com/abc/M28/2...ac/i-1.JPG

The "early" kits were made by Spearco the "late" kits were not. I have been told that the Spearco cores are more efficient.

I have one of the "early" Spearco built units on my car, that I was bought new back in 1986. These "early" kits didn't come with tube separators or the the "Motorsport" logos on the tubes like the "later" kits did.

OK, Well now I guess I can see the differance first hand. I just got the Spearco one now!

I bought a truck load of parts (literaly). Its going to take forever to sort them out and where to put them. (I think 4 complete sets of rims as a starter qualifys for literaly a truck load!)
