    Tuned for open exhaust (open cutout). Don't mind if I only get 441RWHP on the street capped ... :-)

    True true. So is your system dual exhaust? Or is like the stock setup, 1 into the muffler and 2 out?

    Hey about your airbox, my buddy had one of these. How good are they compared to a normal lid, since they're getting air from underneath instead of from the nostrils?

    I sealed a FTRA to the bottom and used some screen material so that it wouldn't suck up bags and such going down the road.



    When you stop and idle the bags would just blow off because the suction was reduced. Worked real well until I installed the Procharger. Now, I don't need it anymore. ;-)

    I'd recommend FTRA sealed with the Stealth box:



    This picture shows the sealing to the FTRA. I installed a wire from top to bottom because overtime it wanted to pull apart there and let air in. So, my little fix insured that everything stayed square between filter changes.



    Huge filter difference. Much better flow:



    VS



    And now:

    Yes, however on a hot day at idle the temperature would rise a little to about 195-200 I'd say in traffic. Even with fans programmed to come in at a lower temp it ran hotter than stock on a hot day (over 95 deg days)

    Now with that all gone and SC with intercoolers and larger fan. It stay around 170-175 almost all the time. Nice and cool ... even on a hot day. Bit of a plus that I didn't expect. I actually think my motor will last longer now.

    On a cool night is barely moves past 165 even boosting.

    Stock system setup... I could use a better Y-pipe and maybe a larger system. However, I was told it would only be good for about 15-20rwhp at best over my cutout and at $700-1000 most SC guys didn't see any reason to for added performance to my car. They all say cam it / meth it !!!

    Well there's a selling point. Everyone get a supercharger because you'll lower your engine temperatures!!

    Thanks, not too many of the guys in the exhaust forum discussed gain w/there setups. I'll be adding an e-cutout w/a y to the "Winter Wish List."

    This is only unique in that I am the only one (by this guy, who is very popular) who has the SLP added to theirs, I know, I had to have it digitized...that cost as much as the rest of the job...but I like.
