I swear by a turbo blanket. Heat coat all you want but it still falls short of a coat. Will be neat to see what a good TMIC can add.
Definitely more fun to drive daily! Negotiating traffic is effortless.

The housing is Swain Tech Coated so putting a blanket on isn't a great idea, but I do like them too. We'll be posting an update once we get the larger TMIC and back on the dyno.

If I already had your header (and I was dead set on a non-rotated 30R with Tial v-band housing) and I had the choice between an adapter or buying a new uppipe with v-band, I would go for the new uppipe.

Looks cool. Just seems like it fills a very, very small corner of the market.
Hadn't thought of offering the up-pipe adapter separately, since it requires the V-Band down-pipe to go with it.

If you already had an up-pipe, why would you want to buy another one?

Anyone with an EWG up-pipe can run this kit. I don't think that's a very small corner of the market. Almost half the headers we sell are sold with the EWG option.

Correct. The 3067 is 'special' in that the compressor wheel is a bit different. It actually has better aero than the larger compressor wheels. This setup is VERY VERY responsive.

There are definitely benefit to the Tial housing
