Default APS turbo-back install....complete

Hey guys,

Just got finished bolting on my APS turbo-back, I've gotta say I could not be any happier with the results. There is a definate improvement on the butt-dyno and the sound is just WOW. but I have a question for all my fellow APS users am I the only one that had to grind off some of the divider that seperates the exhaust and the wastegate exhaust section, It was probably about 1/8 of an inch too long. If I didn't have a grinder handy there would have been no way I coulda got it on.

Later,
Sean

EDIT: APS sent me an E-mail and explained to me why I had to trim a small amount off the divider, I'm very glad I chose APS most companies probably wouldn't even have cared let alone sent me an E-mail to explain. BIG thumbs up from me for APS.

Does the divider actually touch the back of the turbo to completely separate the turbo exhaust gases from the wastegate gases?

I've been reading that it's a very good idea for maximizing lowend torque and minimizing spool-up...

Sorry for being slow to respond, don't check this section all that often.

HongKongBeef: From what APS said there is about a 3mm depth difference between the TD04 and VF series turbo's, which is why I had to grind off a bit of the divider.

thebusiness999: Yes, the divider does actually come in contact with the back of the turbo. That's why I had to grind a small amount off. I'm not sure how this design compares to other popular pipe designs being that this is the first and only pipe I've tried, BUT it definately makes a HUGE difference over the stock piece.

garface: sorry no pics garface, I really need to buy a digital camera one of these days.

You're on the stock turbo, right?

SR30 combined with this downpipe could be real nice. I say that based on this thread:

Look at the post from MSR and follow his links. What he's saying makes enough sense to me.
