    OEM IC Flow...WOW

    We flowed the OEM IC, and found less than 40% of the area had airflow exiting...

    We even blocked 50% of the area with tape, and INCREASED airflow and dropped the restriction ! AMAZING

    More to come....

    it is certanly restrictive if we are still missing 60% on the oem if that is my understanding.
    i wonder if there is a way to get more airflow out of our oem ic.

    that supporting ring in the middle of the intercooler.... remove it all together. You know what will happen.

    support ring needs to stay, it keeps the cooling lines in check...when the air hits that ring, thats where it shoots out...if you remove the ring, the space between the runners opens and the cooling efficiency is lost...

    We blocked the center up, and air shot all the way to the back...

    12" total exposed surface, we used 3" tape, blocked the areas seen in the pics...at the same blower speed, airflow INCREASED from .460 to .475, and backpressure dropped...

    we even tried to use smaller strips to line up for intake runners, but that decreased airflow yet backpressure stayed the same...

    VERY sensitive....

    i flowed a bunch of stuff, such as the throttle body and OEM air intake setup....its a great tool that I will be trying to flow stuff through the net few weeks...

    Next steop is the exhaust system, from the Jpipe to the exit, everything...I'll flow a few muffler setups also, see which works (baffle, half-baffle, no baffle, etc....)

    Danny,

    Great stuff! Keep it coming.

    I am sure there are a lot of us interested in how different water boxes flow.
