Hey guys, inlets are on the hot side to the intercooler right? So I can still run my ER charge pipe? My indy needs to replace my turbo gaskets, do you think I should have him put in the inlets at the same time to save on labor? Thanks

Inlets refer to the pipes that guide air from the filter to the turbo's compressor.

Yeah your piping from the intercooler to the throttle body remains the same. Inlets are a bear to do on their own. If your shop is doing the work to get to the turbo itll be a lot easier to install inlets then.

Sorry about the noob questions, I was wondering because I've seen inlets installed with cone filters. I have the Dinan DCI could I keep this with the inlets?

Thank you

Depends which inlets:
Vargas -> probably.
TFT -> definitely not (they come with their own intake).
Others? -> check with the manufacturer

Had an awesome opportunity to repeat my favorite autocross course from last year. My fastest run was 48.001 last year and 45.871 this year. Differences in my setup was a new front sway bar and going from 245/255 MPSS to 275 square RE71R's.

If you haven't purchased the BMS already, I tried the Mishimoto OCC and it is designed very well. As well RB has an external setup with his upgraded PCC valve.

Thanks, I've never even heard of the Mishimoto one, but I will stick with the tried and true BMS OCC though. I also have the upgraded PCV valve from VTT.

Long time no post -- turbos were installed a while ago, had some issues with the crankcase that took car out of commission for a bit while trying to figure it out. I'm changing suspension setup a bit to a 500# spring up front while rebuilding the camber plates.

Heard some bad noises from rear diff.. Turns out a bunch of bolts were sheered off! Remembered about the recent MFactory recall and they shipped out some new bolts to me very quickly for replacement. Thanks MFactory!

Beautiful! Love that hood and the way it was painted, showing just the right amount of CF.
