I'm not interested in bringing up the car to ridiculous HP, I think the ~220 from the OEM kit is more than enough. I think the Katana produces somewhere around this? Is the OEM kit worth it just to be CARB approved? Any others I should be looking at?

Thank you for your time.
If you get the OEM kit it will still pass CARB - as far as I know it's the only one that will - and with a factory tune you will be at 217hp. The Katana and BOE kits will produce more HP -- but frankly if you're good with 217hp I would just go the OEM route - for one thing it will be quite a bit cheaper, and of course CARB approved. Plus when it comes time to sell the car to the next owner it can make it easier to sell.
