Excessive vibration from Kanaflex after ET 127 install
Hey guys not sure if its normal or not but my Kanaflex tubing has excessive vibration after I installed my ET 127. It seems like its sucking for air but nothing is blocking the tubing. I have it secured to the SC with the adapter and then run up to the storage bin and topped off with a KnN filter. If am running at say 35 mph it vibrates to the point where I can feel it shaking. Any tricks? I can't go with a rear air setup although if I have too I will. I tried adjusting the tubing to make the turn less restrictive but not successful that way.

I had a stock x charger on my 08 RXP with a front 4 inch and switched the charger out for an ET 140 LE and there was no noticeable change other than the sound and jump in performance. In short, I don't think your charger has anything to do with your issue you are having.

I had the same, that et does seem to produce some low rpm harmonics I'm guessing because it's really a cut down 137 wheel.
Others have reported the same thing, the vibration went away with rear air even though I still have a reasonable length of flexible intake.

I have fitted many 127 wheels and it always causes vibration by the air harmonics of the charger at lower rpm ...
As Green bullet has shown , use a rear air pod and most of the vibration will disappear ....or just get use to it and enjoy the power ..

Thanks guys thats what I figured. Glad its a known problem. Ill try some rear air mock ups. At least now if ppl search theyll see this thread. I couldnt find anything.

Easy to make. Just like mine there
ive tested a few 4 in air setups even a full rear air vented to the back and this intake I still used is the best I've tested. Pulls hard. Is loud and not a noticeable performance loss
Ive tested it with 127 137 and 140 charger
