    To the naked eye, they seem pretty close to the same, But you can REALLY tell the difference when looking into the ports. The S2 mani is way cleaner, and if you know skunk2, you know they aren't going to ship out a product that looks like a backyard machine shop ported it. Basically, if you're going to buy an S2 product, from somewhere other than Skunk2.com, contact Skunk2 and ask them if the website you're ordering from is a registered Skunk2 retailer, they're great with customer service and they'll be able to give you the names of some registered retailers.

    Well said, Skunk does not make bad parts, you can easily tell a fake based how well the part has been machined and finished.

    Never bought anything hard core like that. lol. Just a muffler, intake and header. Has anyone bought anything from Skunk?

    not yet but I am thinking about their front and rear camber kits. I kinda like all the Buddy Club stuff my self but the price is ridiculous.

    The most I'd do as far as camber is flush. other than that, keep it dropped, add some sway bars and call it good.

    Yeah you'll need the camber kit when you start to drop it more and if you ever decide to get new rims and different tire profiles and sizes along with different offsets, you never know if you'll need to adjust camber. Skunk does make extremely good parts when it comes to their suspension and exhaust systems and intake manifolds, throttle bodies, stuff like that. I have heard that their valvetrain isn't as good as say... Ferrea, but their cams have been debated back and forth with crower and Jun for years, mostly it's in personal brand name preference.
