Would this be worth doing? Ive read the threads on doing the dp but would wraping the intake pipe have benifits aswell?
I would say that depends on how it i routed. If it is away from the downpipe and intake manifold it may not be worth it. You would probably get better results with cold air intake into the turbo.

its seriously works an it should keep some percentage of the air denser.
One of those words is right....


Anyway if you read the latest issue of SCC Dave Coleman has an article about how the theory that the compressor side of the turbo heats the charge to a certain temp regardless of the intake temp. is completely false. WHile it does heat the intake charge a certain amount, it is not relative to the inlet temp. Thus the lower the intake charge the lower the temp of the charge post-compressor.

And Rell it will keep the metal from getting heat soaked, it does serve a purpose.

Probably won't do anything but get fiberglass particles everywhere... :D

I see you drive your SE-R as much as I do. I plug mine into the trickle charger all the time. Unplugging the terminals completely helps maintain the battery a lot. You also might want to swap the terminals so they're more like stock, it would suck if someone went to jump start you and connected the batteries in series...
