Your Thoughts on IC pipe size?
Guys Since the XS IC is 3in and the SCer and TB are 2.5 in. What do ya'll think would be the best all around pipe size? 2.5in 2.75in, or 3in?
Also anyone know if a 2.75in Silicone coupler fit a 3 in pipe?
Cause my thoughts is go with 2.75in pipe so the silicone couplers fit the 2.5in TB, SCer and the IC in and outlets!

see what sandrock and sleeplessMS use with their XS power IC for plumbing... they are running well beyond 80 with their setups

Thanks steve. This thing is being set up real nice. Just need to make some plumbing for it so I can post picks. It also still has a smaller core than the RR IC. I think RR's would improve with 3in in and out!

I would think that since we are dealing with forced induction that small sizes differences will not affect performance noticeably. Whatever is easiest for you with minimal size changes. I would use 2.5" pipe with the couplers/reducers at the ic. Might as well have the size change there since inside the ic is not 2.5". Keeps everything as consistent as possible.

get real technical and do 3" out of charger into IC and 2.5" from IC to TB..... air density and velocity
