Default Inlet Pipe or Intake? - 09-15-2020, 04:41 PM

Hey gang,

I've got a charge pipe on it's way and I am looking to order a DP in the next week or so. I have just enough in my budget to either open up my inlet pipe or upgrade the intake.

I am probably splitting hairs here but is there a reason to get one over the other? Whatever I don't get now I'll be getting later.

JB4 + BEF (and soon) VSRF Charge Pipe

don't upgrade the intake. It doesn't help anything, the stock one can push enough air for 400whp. upgrade the inlet pipe to the turbo. Quicker spool and a little more power!

Make sure your stock intake filter is clean. If you want, I would get a drop-in filter for the stock intake.

Thank you. I wasnít 100% sure on the intake but everything Iím reading about the inlet supports your assertion.
