I can't wait!

Tony have you thought of possibly making an intake piping kit that goes from the turbos to the filters? I seen a company make some for one car but there was no pricing or data. This would be good for stock turbo or stage 2 cars to bring out the extra ponies

Yea it cost something crazy like $700+ and that was just a beta cost.

I'm sure Tony could produce something more viable for much cheaper considering the amount of fab that's already going into the stage 3 project.

700? That's a steal if it were true. Those upgraded intake pipes I have only seen made by two European companies. One has 1800 euro for its price and the other is 2800 euros.

^^oh wow, my car's turbo siren noise is pretty much as loud as yours in that video you posted like last week. No smoking at all though and very little rattle. I wouldn't mind at all if they might be on they're way out soon haha, I was also was interested in these stage 2s.

By the look at these , I can`t help but asking myself , is it not possible to just cut ends on these and that way get bigger opening , and put in a bigger silicone hose to adapt ?

Waste of time of you ask me. You increase the outlet but the leave the inlet the same size. Thats like a funnel, no matter how much bigger one end is, you are only getting as much flow as the smallest diameter. They should have made the turbo side one big diameter to just slide right over the turbo snout. Not neck it down. Plus trying to fit these with the engine in the car must be a nightmare. The stock plastics ones insight hair pulling to remove / install and they bend and give and that is with the subframe removed.
