You would think with a compressor literally sucking volumes of air that it would sort itself out, but that’s not always the case. Turbulence, and the resulting inconsistent airflow, is the enemy. Any sort of change in the airflow can cause pressure differentials and ultimately keep your turbocharged engine from rising to its full potential. As laid out in the Continue Reading ››

Improved Induction – Silicone Induction Hose R&D, Part 1: Stock Review

Many would question the motives behind someone who purchases a four-cylinder turbo of what has come to be a staple of the American muscle culture. Personally, I get it.

For instance, we can increase the volume of air that flows through the tube, which will only benefit this 5.0L Cummins turbo diesel. The factory piece will be comparatively restrictive in … Continue Reading ››
