Default help with the dom 3xtr (with pics now)

okay so i was installing my tgv deletes back on today and about to put my 3in inlet on..weird enough i managed to get it on but im just curious if you guys running the 3in inlet if you have yours squished like mine is. im actually kind of scared of even running it like that or if it will even fit my intake manifold on. I wish i would of took sme pics but its about have way restricted and then again at the end..thinking about going blow thru im so tired of this


anyone have this issues

My ATP fit rather well. I wish I'd taken a picture with the manifold off, but at the time I didn't realize it was abnormal for a 3" inlet to fit so well. It wasn't until after we did my install that I saw some pictures of Blouch and FP compressor covers practically banging into the TGV housings.

stock location 3xtr?
3 inch inlet under the intake runner?
are you using a phenolic spacer?
i have the perrin rotated 3076r. perrin wants you to use a blow through on their set up for another 200$.
i opted to have dave weld a maf flange from ks tech on my cai. works well. ks told me they have made a mint selling those flanges for my application.

i'd like to see that...pm me the next meet you'll be at chris.

using the 3xtr w/ 2.5 inlet tgv delete and phenolic spacers aps inlet no problems. 3" inlet will rub and put a dent in the inlet on the tgv housing but should work w/o problems. fp fitment is so worse i went that route before getting the dom. imo the aps hard inlet is the better option w/ the silicone coupler. some work w/ rerouting fuel return and breather hoses but the fitment is much better.

Even the 2.4 inlets are a little squished with these larger stock mounts.

What screens are you talking about?

The new perrin silicone inlets are reinforced with metal rings, they won't crush under maximum suck!

2.4, I already had the aforementioned inlet, so I stayed with a 2.4. To do it over again, I would've went rotated... would've cost the same, and the benies are grander

Just asking. While it's still apart can you match the tgv closer to the head intake? Is there enough metal? Curious...if the intakes are hogged out that big and the tgvs can't be made to match is their any/much gain going that big on the intake?

Might want to ditch that T Bolt clamp too. Absolutely no need for that much clamping force.

That is fitting about as well as it's going to. As someone mentioned before, don't use the t-bolt clamp. The snout on the comp cover is very short and if you use a t-bolt, there won't be any silicone past the edge of the clamp. That will make the hose want to worm off after time. We use a really nice, thick surface worm drive clamp on those connections and have found it to be by far the most reliable and secure way to go.
