No NVH from my spherical bearings and a huge improvement in traction and stability on hard acceleration.
I'd just stick with the spherical IMO, tried and trusted brand/product, and I would imagine if there's any difference the poly would deflect a little more and likely less improvement.
Compared some logs before and after the new blower outlet tube.
Old outlet: MAF maxed (86.68) @ 7200rpm @ 15psi
New outlet: MAF maxed (86.68) @ 6800rpm @ 14psi
So I'm not exactly sure what to make of that data, but I believe it shows that it's flowing more air/CFM, at less boost. Which would...
I frequently do ~700mi round trips.
Of course it makes the drive way more fun than in a normal car. My car has a ton of miles on it already just because I love driving it long distance.
Cons are gas mileage/expense, and if you have a loud exhaust your ears may be ringing by the end lol.
Better impact gun.
If you don't have an expensive and large compressor at home it probably cant put out enough CFMs to run the gun. Get an electric impact. My Dewalt XR has around 1200 ft/lbs. No lug stands a chance lol.
I'd love an AWD Mustang. RWD sucks for a high powered FI street car and AWD, while having more drivetrain losses, would make the power way more usable and launching actually possible.
Honestly though, I would be surprised if it happened.
The MAK pipe damage I had wasn't anything to do with the tube, I found it like that when I took it apart. I hear you though. Definitely don't want to ruin the blower's finish. And forcing it all together definitely wasn't fun.
Good idea! I like that.
I'm ordering a replacement air filter so...
Nothing from Procharger, it's all aftermarket.
Check out the write-up here. He lists everything you need and the whole process.
Be prepared, install is a pain lol. So tight in that area. An extra pair of hands helps and you'll need to cut the 135* tube pretty short.
Better airflow without a kinked pipe so I'd like to think it'll add a little power lol.
I almost gave up several times and thought it wouldn't work too. I...
While I was in there I found my MAK inlet had been rubbing against the frame and actually wore through the metal. Nowhere open to get it patched so i wrapped some spare silicone from the tube job and put a clamp over it to seal it.
Also cleaned inside the blower/impeller real good as it had...
Interesting. My log was just a single gear pull but it was consistently lean, not a spike.
Was quite scary to see and I was lucky my motor didnt go kaboom as that was ~12psi at around 1.0 lambda. :whew:
One other time after that with the meth on it wasn't as bad, but still abnormal. Went...
