  1. Finally got around to wrapping my intake tube with some DEI heat wrap. So far it’s about 10degrees cooler driving around in the city. Doesn’t get as much heat soak from the fan kicking on and off. I can probably get even better IAT if I make a lid for my “box”. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That is correct if I’m running a turbo. I added a wastegate using it more like a cutout and relieves exhaust “back pressure”. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Wastegate is usually use to regular boost for turbo system.... I’m actually running a supercharger... which doesn’t use wastegate to regular boost. BUTTTT I’m running an aftermarket 3.5” cat and planning to up my power to about 750-800HP.... and 3.5” exhaust is too restrictive in my opinion for that power level... let alone the cat... it’ll be soooo restrictive with the cat. Soooooo I added a wastegate to relieve exhaust pressure right before the cat. The boost (on the gauge which is tapped into the intake runner) goes down because it’s more free flowing. The easier the exhaust move, the less pressure will be in the intake side. But that doesn’t mean I’m losing HP... if anything I’m making more power. It’s like adding a better flowing cam. Swapping a cam out will definitely drop my boost shown on the gauge. But without swapping my pullies, I will probably make another 50-75HP with boost gauge showing 2-4 PSI less. Hope that clears it up. I know I’m not the best at explaining things. Sometime I even confuse people more haha. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Also got the waste gate (my version of exhaust cutout) opening at 8PSI. Did a little quick pull. Its a lot raspier than I expected. The boost did dropped a little bit from what I can tell on the gauge, about 0.5-1psi. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Little update on the ceramic coated long tube headers. Just parked after about a 30 mins drive. Ambient temp is 46 degrees. The header at the top is 182F. The beginning of the Y pipe (coated with VHT primer and fire proof spray paint) is 257F. Not bad! Can’t wait to see what the temp differences would be on a hot day after some hard pull.

  6. Didn’t wanna send it off looking ugly so I got some high heat prime and paint and laid some down for ya! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. They are wayyyyy too nice for my truck! Straight trade for stock headers! Done deal! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Sending it over ASAP! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Headers are back from getting Ceramic coated. Y pipe is back from getting final touches (added a 60mm wastegate and an extra o2 sensor bung). Now I gotta wait 5 days for the headers to completely cure...... They even coated the inside!!! Also had to make some adjustments..... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Ohhh yeah I can’t wait. I did it for 2 main reasons; 1. Lower the engine bay heat because blower’s heat soak in SoCal’s 110+ degrees sucksssss. 2. Driver’s side brake lines is like 3/4” away from the header and I had brake fade at ...... high speed.... Can’t wait!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Lol I’ll just ship you guys my truck! Easier! Haha I can’t wait to see how they look! And cutting down the heat in the bay!!! It should be almost half! Forgot this picture of the V band... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Headers and Y pipe is finally done with V bands. Now it’s off to get ceramic coating. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’m running 1 from http://www.alldrivelines.com. It’s rated for 175mph with 800+hp. If you got the steel 1 already, you don’t need to upgrade. Find a local shop that can balance yours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. With turbo. I’m sure stock fuel system will be able to handle it.... but I would still upgrade the in-tank. With a blower... you’re be pretty close to maxing them out. That’s on 91.... I’m sure you can run the stock cam. Idk about having it being active tho. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Trimmed the overhang on the CTSV pads on the ZR1 calipers. (Forgot to take after photos) Got a new set of plugs and gapped them down to 0.025”. Now waiting for my headers and Y pipe to come back and put it all back together. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
