Default i have qestuon silicone inlets - 10-12-2017, 03:45 AM

hellow

i search " silcone turbo inlets' in google

said in google " using silicone turbo inlets can increase 20whp
if n54 engine tune stage2 condition

I can't believe it.
That's the only effect of replacing a simple hose.

What do you think?
And if you're using someone, how far did you see it?

The OEM inlets are considerably smaller than the aftermarket inlets. I just had mine replaced when I had my RB Turbo next gens replaced. Trump would definitely say “there huge”. I would say it is a must when replacing your turbos.

power gains from turbo inlets have been proven many times. You may see more than a 20whp increase , just will depend on other mods you have and power level.

I have them.
Now that I've tuned a bit different I can say yes they can make more power. But you really don't see more power at the same boost. If you up the boost you'll see that extra power.
So then it becomes, well couldn't I just up the boost now and make the same power? Maybe.It depends on how much more your boost solenoids can do.
The inlets let things breath better. So that lowers the wgdc giving you more room to make more boost.


The big drawback with relocate inlets is heat soak. If you're moving this isn't a problem at all. But when I'm sitting in staging my IAT's will just keep climbing. Turning the cooling fan on only makes it worse. Always hood open in staging to get that heat out.

Inlet's should make more power, and reduce WGDC making life easier on the turbos.

I, like many others, did the inlets at same time as turbo upgrade, so impossible to tell how much they added by themselves.

It would be nice if someone would make a high flow closed element relocation kit with a scoop from the front end.

Something that looks stock?
I also would like that.



Also to note, I am on stock turbos with relocate inlets. So I'm an outlier.

Mine is similar to this. Factory air box, inlets, and a external cone filter attached to air box. I prefer the cleaner look.
