I allow around 4 to 5hrs depending on the complexity.
Really depends on the intake and how much stuff I got to move out of the way.
Its quite easy actually once you know what your doing, the first time there is a bit of tool throwing and lots of unsavoury words being thrown about.
The only reason the double barrel fails is due to install error and lack of experience installing these kits.
I had kits installed by other qualified local and interstate shops and they have been running without issues.
You reroute the flow of vacuum/boost, not any actual lines. It's literally just capping one thing off and connecting an already existing line to a slightly different spot, maybe 10 minutes worth of work including installing the electrical harnessKeyword: rerouting
For sure, if you have any questions feel free to ask. Not sure why some people in this thread don't realize how easy it is to change where you T a vacuum line out of lol, but it's an easy and cleaner solution than the typical charge pipe setup imo.I have the flapper unplugged anyway so this could be a great solution. I'm pretty sure I can make this happen but I may come to you for more details if I can't figure it out.
Yes, the flap runs off of vacuum. But like I said in my first post about it, you re-route where the line comes from so it sees boost instead of vacuum I've run it this way for over two years now, and actually got the idea from one of the big name tuners who originally did it.isnt the exhaust flap ran off constant vacuum from the pump? not engine vacuum
the exhaust flap needs vacuum to open the valve, if it used engine vacuum it would close under boost
are you sure your hobbs switch ever sees boost?
Yep, basically. I already had my BOVs running off of a VS BOV adapter on top of the manifold, so I just had to uncap the stock DV nipple and run my flapper line there, took two seconds. Most of my time with the install was spent messing around with the trunk liner in order to have a completely stealth install, but even that didn't take long.Best way to do it is reroute the flap to your stock nipple for the BOV and then add a bigger fitting into your intake manifold
Try driving a car in the rain running pi and traction control on, its not pleasant.
Wouldn't PI only come on above a certain boost level? Why would you be going WOT in the rain in the first place? I don't even run PI and If it's wet out, I barely get into boost if I can help it.
I've been trying to figure out what connector (male) will actually plug into the factory vacuum connector at the harness. I've been told teh Bosch EV1 will do it. I have some on the way to see how it plays out. I don't like to cut the harness and prefer pinning up a proper connector if possible. If someone has already nailed that connector down, speak up! Otherwise I'll post if this works out.
