Beatrush stuff are amazing.

Got the Morroso catch cans already, but considering trading up to the IAG setup. DP is catted; I like the idea of not having to worry about getting someone to “pass” my annual vehicle inspection… Also, I’ve read that boost creep is less of an issue with a catted DP, and I don’t want to go full EWG right now.AOS?
Are you going csatted DP or catless?
That’s true, it is technically twice the failure potential, but realistically I’m not too worried about it. Other than the scaling you mentioned, is there any benefit from using pressure in the manifold to measure the air rather than flow through the intake? I’m not set on a SD tune at all, but figured IF I should switch, I should do it all at once. (although it would be nice to be able to change the intake without needing a retune, but that’s small peanuts…)If you want to compare from a "failure" side, SD doubles your potential for failure on a sensor malfunction standpoint.
I personally prefer using a MAF, however, there comes a point at higher power levels where SD has it's usefulness. For the most part, you lose resolution as you scale higher. In the case of a Subaru with a FMIC, you end up with so much piping that it can delay a MAF signal and then you need to vent it back into the inlet.
My only concern with the temperature measurement being in the MAF, is that it has no way to tell what the actual temperature of the air entering into the engine is (post intercooler). And since the intercooler efficiency starts dropping in the upper revs and temps begin to climb, I don’t know how well the MAF tables are able to account for this. I mean it seems like a good idea to put the intake temp as far down the intake path as possible… Am I crazy, is this a waste of time? Have you tuned a car with a relocated intake temp sensor?I haven't found a MAF sensor to be unreliable. They are temperature dependent, but that's what the MAF temp compensation table is for. In previous makes of cars, I'm guessing the correction was built into the sensor because I never had to worry about it on my SHO.
Haha, that would be a good one to try to fab up nextIf we're all placing orders, ill take an aluminum rear seat delete so i dont have to order a heavy beatrush one ;]
I might have missed somthing so sorry if this is in left field. One of our local shops likes to relocate the temp sensor to the bottom of the ic. Says it allows for a more accurate reading of the intake temp as its on the tb side of things.
They have a o2 bong welded in for it
Wow, thats crazy! Will you get in trouble at all, or need to claim them when you enter Germany?The gear whine is pretty awesome, I agree
I'll be buying the Group N Engine and Transmission Mounts when I'm in the US and bring them over in my suitcase.
WAAAAY cheaper than buying them over here.
But getting the jerking out of the drivetrain on/off throttle sounds good to me! :tup:
