Should help with future mods! How much did it cost? From the pictures it looks like an easy swap. How long did it take to install?
That gain seems high. I don't see how this would result in any TQ loss, as I understand it eliminating the pressure drop would increase boost pressure, which would increase TQ and HP.I've read about these on the VT forums before....I seen a dyne graph that someone posted, not sure where from but it showed a 10-13whp gain from this? I'm not sure how.
I've also read about the loss of low end torque, but hits good around 3500 RPM. Others say that they didn't feel a loss. Only thing holding me back from this is the possibility to lose that torque. :/ any more opinions?
@6thelementengineering what do you think...worth or not?
So i'm assuming you'll be making an intercooler eventually ? Wich parts are you gonna focus on now that you got your car back ?Our intercooler will flow enough air needed for a certain amount of power. What that is, I have not actually seen yet. I need to read VT Forums a little more.
Estimating the total volume of space the intercooler provides and lead us to a rough estimate of the CFM flow it is capable of. There are numerous CFM to HP calculators out there that will then lead us to the peak HP #'s our intercooler would be able to make.
This is another thing I would like to document once I have my car and I can develop a FMIC kit or a better factory replacement intercooler.
In all honesty, a nicer factory replacement would suit most people (coming from a cost standpoint). FMIC is obviously better (if designed right) and is great also the coolness factor is there too
In no particular order:So i'm assuming you'll be making an intercooler eventually ? Wich parts are you gonna focus on now that you got your car back ?
Gotcha now ....thanks for the diagram ! Do you plan on selling the resonator delete pipe ? If not i'll order one from turbosocks....I mean I rather encourage the forums vendor first ...you know !This part is located in the "hot side" pipe that runs underneath the engine. And by that I mean the piping between the compressor outlet of the turbocharger and the inlet of the intercooler.
It is located in this pipe, just to the left of the "A" leader in this diagram.

Not in a rush at all...i'll wait till you figure what you can do ! I will order couple parts as soon as they will be designed/made...I told myself i would keep it stock when i first bought it and you see where i'm at already ? Lol....Of course!
I plan on looking at all that today. I'd like to offer the same thing or better (not sure what I can do to make it better) for the same price (or cheaper).
I'll know more as this weekend goes along.
I'm not sure how soon you want the mod, but for me to get something for sale, it will be a week or two. If you're in a rush, I won't be offended.
I really appreciate the support
