Zex or NOS

I WAS lined up on a Zex Dry kit, but seller backed out....

So I found a NOS dry kit, Is the Zex really that much safer than the NOS kit?

I need to know by 6 hours from now as ebay auction is closing.

Link to auction?

NOS will be safe, and "should" provide more power/torque.
I have never seen any dyno numbers from a Zex kit so I don't know for certain, but a guys w/ a NOS dry kit here got close to 100whp on a 100 shot, but like 200 torque or something like that. This was a 02' SS Camaro though.

Auction ended, before you posted.

It sold for 290.00

I didn't bid because I had no responses, and didn't wanna buy something not good.

Thanks Again Aaron
