to stock is a project too


yea thats what i figured he meant but never heard it called that so wasnt sure.

if it is the charge pipe how did you just put your boost gauge on it, wouldnt you have had to drill and tap it for a vacuum nipple?

also, how will it fix anything if you tap it there? if it is 15psi in the charge pipe, and you only have 2 in your manifold, if you tap the charge pipe wouldnt you never get boost in the manifold then?

i am confused please explain, i would assume its a higher pressure right there because its right out of the compressor and its a smaller volume than your IC or manifold, maybe not that high but it should be higher shouldnt it?


i know we are dealing with stuff far from the ideal gas law but the temp drop isnt too significant in comparison to the volume change i dont think, like i would assume the IC volume is prob 5 times as big as the pressure pipe, or if your intercooler did nothing to cool the air it is at least 3 times as big to drop the pressure by 1/3.

thats my really simple chemistry knowledge. lol
