Ok here are my install pictures, took a few! the stock intake is garbage in comparison with 6th intake. The stickers took longer then the intake,, that's how easy this was!

that's my 6th res delete, installing that later this week!

For sure! She's badass, this is a no brainer mod. Got a lot of looks driving through town... Hardly touch the throttle and you can hear it sucking air and the turbo spooling.

Next install is the intercooler res delete!

Sound isn't that bad. Depends on how you drive it really. If your easy on it then it's not to loud but once you start pushing then yeah it comes to life.

I am still hesitant due to the sound. But that intake and stickers look real nice
As forte5 said,, depends on your style of driving. Unless you WOT at every green light your good... Can it be heard, of course.. It's doing its job.. Sucking air but it's nothing to complain about.

everytime i see an intake installed i still hold onto hope for a coolant and washer resvoir relocations with the filter behind the p/s headlight / foglight...... so the actual intake is short as possible.

That would give a really tight U bend and wouldn't be 3.5" and probably kill performance. If you want shorter get the SRI and cut it down to make it shorter but the filter will sit over coolant lines.

I don't see that working,, this intake from 6th is so big and so clean. Wouldn't change anything about it. I like the location. Might rock the CAI extension for summer.

I like the size of it . Really big and fat . Looks to give plenty of air to grab freely for the turbo any plans on adding a recirculating fitting version though ?

I agree honhon. That was my first thought when I saw the intake set-up when I got my car, eliminate the 180deg bend going into the turbo compressor.

Putting it there would probably be the same length or dang close to the current short ram. I don't see a need to make it even shorter when it works perfect now. I have seen filters right no the turbo but mostly in a race setup.

There is no need. The BOV sound is exactly the same recirculated or not. Adding the extra work to the intake to add that feature has no justification to its cost. That is why we don't do it.

Does the factory blow off valve encounter any problems once you've unrestricted it?

Also, without the recirculated air, will I run into lag or does the extra airflow from the Sri compensate for the lost recirc air ?

To answer your question, no there's no issues on this car due to the location of the bpv and the lack of a maf sensor. The bpv is so far back from the turbo that any small amount of air it recirculates is negligible. The lack of a maf sensor means the computer is reading air velocity, manifold pressure, airflow, etc from the intake manifold (MAP sensor). Therefore the bpv venting to atmosphere should have zero negative effects on this car.

100% correct.

When you take your foot off the throttle, the throttle body closes and the air in all of your intake system comes to a stop (because it can;t go into the motor). When all that air stops moving, the turbo charger is still spinning working against that air that has stopped and that hurts turbo parts.
That's when your valve comes in to play. When the throttle closes, the valve opens and keeps the air moving. For us, the air can go anywhere. Back into the intake, out into the engine bay, through a tube down to the ground, literally anywhere! It doesn't matter as long as it is un-restricted and moving!

All of our engine's air metering is done in the intake manifold so there are zero side effects to not recirculating the valve air other than hearing the valve open.
