Question

How much of a power gain can you expect by upgrading the upper and lower IC piping with the Greddy or other pipings out there? Thanks!

Good power gain. I like them! I think the factory braided hoses tended to expand under high boost.

Easy install too. And it is a perfect flange for your GReddy BOV.

check out my website for pics of them.

Question

Mospeed,

Cool site!!! Thanks for the 411. Did it also make the BOV sound louder? I heard that it makes it echo more. Is that true? I'm thinking of getting one but I really don't like the silver color. I may get it chromed before I install it.

Definately a good power adder. Some mods you do and you can't really feel much difference but not so with adding intercooler pipes.

Yeah there is a small echo, but not REAL noticable. Just make sure to tighten down those o-rings. The first tims I test drove it, I'm guessing I felt what fuel cut feels like. Car jerked so hard my seat belts locked. One of the silicon hoses popped off.
