I have it. At the time I bought it, it was aluminum in a world where other kits were steel, and cost was about the same. Mine came with a flat billet/milled carb support rather than the turnbuckle one in the photo, and although the piece is actually cooler than a turnbuckle, it's a little trickier to install, IMHO.

Any of the ARKs seems like a good choice. You'll get more oomph, and a lot more air intake noise. Vroom!

Ditto! I have the (N) ARK and am thrilled. Simple carb brace that does the trick perfectly. The induction roar is terrific and when you fire her up you feel the carbs between your legs! Does it for me.

I installed the BC kit about 2 months ago. Did a rejet at the same time. The quality of the unit is solid and dropped in with no fuss. Came with the turnbuckle carb support, which works fine, but as others have mentioned, doesn't look quite as good as the milled support brace. For me, it worked fine, and doesn't look that bad. The stuff that hangs on the airbox (Rear brake res., fuse box) all get proper attention on the BC Kit. Everything attaches an secures properly to the unit.
This mod along with my D&D's and a rejet have made the motor come to life. Now on to the suspension...

cheers
