Anyone heard of these coilovers?

I have a buddy of mine who gets car parts straight from Japan, and for cheap because he is a dealer. He has owned a couple 600+ hp skylines, 500+ hp Evo's, and currently he has an S15 at 350 hp. He lives here in Virginia, and said he can get me a set of "WAT's" coilovers, he says they are only available in Japan and sell for about $1,599, but he's giving them to me for $600. He said he had a set of WAT's coilovers on his Evo, and he loved them.

So anyone heard of them/got info on them/website??

I checked out their website www.wat.com.tk - couldn't get any info on the coilovers though.

I'll check to see if I can get you a set

Edit:
I found something else on them. Tell me what you guys thing:
# High strength 50mm mono tube design for advanced street use & entry level competition.
# 40-way damping force adjustment (compression & rebound combined). Force/velocity dyno tested -charts available.
# Separate full length ride height & spring pre-load adjustment.
# Newly designed spring seats, spring seat lock & bracket lock for trouble-free height & pre-load adjustment.
# MacPherson types have pillowball upper mounts with adjustable camber plates (optional adjustable camber & caster available).
# Anodized steel shell cases and stainless steel mono-tube dampers with a special treatment for superior rust prevention.

Haha. Sounds like every other coilover man lol. I say get them and find out if you like them for yourself. Then come on here and tell everyone how much you love them/hate them.

No...not saying they are ksports...just saying they look just like them. Ksports have a different dampening range too.

They do just look like typical Asian coilovers though (which is undoubtedly where they are made). It really does not matter terribly much if that are 50mm monotubes. They can still be crap or be good. Damper quality, rates, shock dyno, stroke, etc are all the important details

Sadly I doubt many companies who sell coilovers will list all of that information for easy viewing any time soon. I'm still waiting for someone to come out with a shock dyno result for the powered by max coilovers. I havent heard anything bad from anyone who uses them and they look like they perfrom nicely (unlike the krapsport's) but it would be nice to see it on paper.
