Not as much as i was hoping for but midrange has definetly improved as has throttle response
Mod list: tjm snorkel
Pacemaker headers with hollowed primary cats
Custom y pipe wit secondary cat deletes
Lukey 16x4 inch glass pack strait through
Nst light weight water pump pulley
All tied up with custom tune
Considering ati 10% underdrive pulley, also note one of the reason the gains are low is i forgot to ask him to increase the torque limiters in each gear
So finally ordered a set of timbren ABSTOF's last night, contemplating whether to put them strait on or hold off as im going to redo the front end with new superpro lca's, springs, struts, and total chaos lca skid plates and maybe some baha kit spindle gussets.
Custom braided and extended brakelines ordered and booked in for the 20, adjustable rear sway bar links will follow not long after. Then it will just be upper and lower arms and panhard and the back will be ready for a set of of 4 inch shocks and 60mm lift.
Update on the front timbrens, pushed the car down some rough local sand tracks that ive bottomed the travel out on plenty of times. Theres definetly an improvement on bigger hits up front, no harsh jolt anymore. They arent as smooth as the rears but a big improvement over stock, if i had to pick one thing i would say the rubber spring could be slightly longer on my set up as its a lifted frame and possibly slightly softer at the beggining of compression
So purely out curiosity if i was to plumb this blanked off inlet into the intake hose post MAF sensor, how would the engine run. In my mind the maf sensor is reading the same amount of air as normal but their is air bypassing the throttlebody so the engine could run lean.
I dont actually intend on doing this, i just wonder. Bulletcara here in aus use that inlet for a bypass valve on their centrifugal blower kit.
