Mugen Parts

I was just wondering what everyone thinks of Mugen parts. Are they worth the price do they produce many gains, over cheaper parts etc.

I hope they get their English site up soon.

Mainly genuine Mugen parts are for the WOW! factor.

When referring to parts like the genuine Mugen exhaust, your local exhaust shop could whip you up one for half the price and get the same benifits. And the Mugen headers despite costing about the same (if not more) than an RMF are far inferior.

But the bodykits look absolutly awesome, and are far better quality than the replicas.

I purchased the Mugen Aluminum sport pedals. NOT impressed with the craftsmanship....especially the accelerator pedal. I'm picky about things and I look for precision when it comes to machining. The pedals hole pattern looks like it was "eyeballed" and drilled by hand on a drill press...each hole is uneven in a given row and the countersink edges are jagged and not perfect...probably a dull bit. I also bought new mounting hardware for the brake and clutch covers because one of the cap-head screws that was supplied with the Mugen kit had excess metal inside the cap-head...so the allen wrench wouldn't fit.

I expected more after paying all that money.

Mugen is great for looks, atleast exterior wise, not familiar with the other parts, but they are really expensive, and you could find the same if not better quality parts for cheaper.

Mugen isn't that great. Kind of like Spoon, you can get the same products without the Brand name for cheaper. But it sounds cooler when you say "Well I have a Mugen header" or " I have a Spoon engine" But other then that no me gusta Mugen or Spoon
