Default Process West TMIC and APS TMIC comparison

I'm interested in the new Process West TMIC due to the larger silicone pipes underneath the TMIC that potentially can allow more flow than the APS one.

Process West


APS


Notice that the APS one retain the use of the stock aluminum pipes underneath the TMIC which is not as big as the silicone pipes of the Process West unit

However, seems like Process West forgot something...


Notice how the APS unit provide 3 holes for the black rod-like thingy to be attached to, just like the stock unit



Where's the three holes on the Process West unit????


Without these 3 holes, where would the black rod-like thingy be attached to?? What is this black rod-like thingy anyway?? Will there be compatibility issues??

The above pictures belong to Tbagger from IWSTI forum and Kevin from Process West.

Please discuss.

The "black rod-like thingy" is nothing more than a fancy way to tee together the two head breather lines into one line that runs back into the intake.

With the Process West tmic, you'd just replace the black thingy with some extended hose and use a plastic fitting to tee them together.

It would be nice to see the results of both units after some testing on a flowbench. Is there any flow data out there for either unit?

unfortunately, i couldn't find any flow data for either one. I would like to know that as well.

Thanks for clarifying the "black rod-like thingy" for me

There is data on some aus site, where the TMIC was first announced by it's maker. You'll have to do some digging here to find the links.
