With the 80mm TB, what size intake tube will you use? Surely it needs to be smaller than the TB for velocity increase.

if thats the case, the I need a silicone reducer, I'll get that from RSM to suit.

Taylor?! Whats the diameter of the intake pipe, did you have that before or after you went 80mm?

Lets talk $$ and shipping etc!.

Any filter with the pipe?...now I need to design a heat shield

Hold on Jim, let me look through the garage and see exactly what I got, I want to make sure I've got the pipe before I get you all pumped up about it.

The intake pipe was smaller than the TB, that'* were the silicon reducer comes into play, you can get these for 8-10 bucks at most car shops, got one for my dad'* intake I bought him on his Suziki Grand Vitara in Red. I want to say that the TB is around 4in, and the pipe was 3.5in.

Taylor, I can do $75 shipped..if interested, please have it sent to Peter'* place in Syracuse, he wil be coming to Toronto one weekend this summer, so its all good, it will save on shipping and the inherent hassle of sending goods over the border.

Lemme get back to you once I talk to Pete, so $75 USD shipped to Sy NY 13057, best I can do.

If thats to low, then I'll let someone else jump on it.

BTW, how long is the pipe, I want RSM to install it, but I want it to reach a long way down, no short RAM pipes. Do you have a picture of it?
