    Thumbs down Dual IC = CORK

    Flow data based on the dual barrel IC setup by Speedfreak, original can be found here...
    http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=108543

    I flowed it as is, individual, then 2 in a row with a straight coupler. The results are below, but all I can say is that this style IC (even individually) is not worth it.

    When we ran them as is, the machine was not even able to get to the normal flow rate of .460 (cruising speed) before the water was coming out the top of the measuring device . WE PEGGED IT! Under normal speeds, individually, each unit was almost 3x's as restrictive as the OEM setup.

    The backpressure was due to the long, narrow design of the unit. Too much surface area in a tight spot. I'm sure the larger Type 19 Barrel unit is close behind.


    Airflow reference thread can be found here...

    Thats a matter of personal preference, plus what your pushing through it (small SC vs. Larger SC vs. Turbo)...

    The larger XS will work on all, the smaller will work the same just a little corky when volume gets large...
