That’s rad! I dig it. Sounds like you’re going to street it, if it were me I’d get a muffler
for my own sanity and comfort level. I’ve done that I/C mod before, though didn’t
like the added lag. The factory set up is pretty perfect for just plain stock streetable
driving and quick spool up, the fun factor is very good.
The ‘breaking up’ is probably your fuel cut, is the check engine light flash for a moment
when it happens? Looks cool! Thanks for saving it and sharing!
What is that coming out of the top radiator?
My check engine light does come on when it happens, so the fuel cut is likely it. Is there a specific RPM that happens at?
The line coming out of the upper Intercooler is for a boost gauge in the dash. Idk how accurate the setup is. They plumbed it into one of the bolt holes for the plastic cover. The reason I say it might not be accurate is the fact that they used a T fitting instead of a straight one, so there is a vacuum/boost leak there.
I do have an old Toyota muffler lying around. My parts came in today, when I wasn’t expecting them until Monday. My plan is to make the pipe in a way that I can see how it sounds without the muffler, but still have a spot to weld it in if I want to.
I will be making a whole new pipe so if I do end up racing it I can install the straight pipe again. It currently sounds like it is a much larger motor (almost v6esque) than the 1.0L that it is.
I would like to be able to lessen the lag, even if that means running less boost.
