Understood. However that wall was designed in CAD with specific thickness for a purpose. They certainly would not put thicker piping (that adds weight) without adequate optimization. Not trying to undermine your efforts, just thinking why is stock wall so much thicker and why? Things like vibration resonance come to mind.

Just touching base with EPL today to see when I can get on the dyno early next week. After we do the "baseline" runs work will begin. Nothing is happening this weekend as I'm heading up to VT for our first decent storm of the year (50"!!)

how long does EPL estimate it'll take them to get the car back on the dyno after the baseline? Are you waiting on any parts or is everything they expect they'll need there?

I don't want to get any hopes up so don't quote me on this, but if all goes as planned the car will be back on the dyno with the upgraded turbos by the end of the week.

Parts were ordered, the turbofolds will be dropped off to get blasted with a hi-temp coating and will be ready for install early/mid week.
