4wd Turbo Intake plenum...replace??
Posted 12 January 2004 - 02:31 AM
Thinking...this "4WD Turbo" intake plenum can't flow that well as it's rectangular and flattened.
Now i'm not intercooling it, but is it worth building up a new pipe that is round to replace this thing?? Is it gonna flow better??
I'm already ditching the Airbox, and installing a cone filter. i also have a re-circ BOV off a Legacy Turbo which i'm thinking of throwing into the mix.
Am i gonna see any HP's from replacing this thing??

You would probably see small gains in power from doing what you are suggesting, but with just a little more work to put an intercooler on you could gain a lot more power.
Just my two cents.

apart from that, It's minus 30 up there, the air is cold enough
