I have the injen, where can I hack it, I hate taking off the tire, just to clean out the air filter. another reason to go

The bottom line is that unless you replace the hose after the intake, you have not gotten rid of the main flow restriction.

Hey Nathan. Are you guys having to reprogram the unichips if you install the Turbo inlet pipe? Which pipe do you guys recomend? I am still running the stocker and that is probably something I need to think about.

Thanks!

CT,
I think we are adding just a bit more fuel to the injen/samco combo. I've only used the samco personally, but the guys at TXS have used the STI unit, and they perfer the samco. They say the STI unit is just a bit too hard to install.

Well damn, It looks like now I'm not getting either... I guess I'm better off sticking with the OEM intake, with the silencer removed... If I got a FMI would I need a CAI or something? Pretty new to the turbo scene

I hope someone could answer my one question - has anyone just cut open the front section of the tank on the bottom of the resonator? It appears to me that it might give a semi ram-air effect. Thus it would maybe solve a few things. You'd still have the stock airbox, which the original ECU can handle as well as (it seems) most chips can too. Then it would also give cold air almost like a CAI (and more cold than a pod would). And lastly, if the ram effect does indeed work, then you get some air shoved in faster.

if you are planning on getting a front mount intercooler, your are going to have to hack up your cold air intake. i would suggest if you know that you are getting a fmic, just to get a blitz, or anything that looks like it because all of the cold air intakes go into the fender. but if you have a fmic your going to have to cut your cold air intake and it will end up look like the blitz anyways.

Ok... I am going to order one up and give it a shot. I think that stock pipe in my car is a real restriction at this point in the game.

BTW... I ran the stock airbox and intake snorkel/filter until I could simply not make anymore power with it. No matter what I did I could not make more HP. I installed the AEM and saw almost unbelievable gains. Dropping 4 tenths and picking up 5mph at the strip. I used a wideband AF and yes. The AEM did lean me out one half point. I added more fuel and got back to my target AF. I think most people will be just fine with the stock Airbox until the 350+ hp range and then it should be chucked. To bad. I dont like the noise and would rather run a stock system. I wonder if I hack the AEM off if it would help..... I better get that turbo pipe on first.

Thanks for the help.
