The way this thread keeps getting revived, I figure I can do that 2 more times before it dies

Speaking of intercoolers.

Navi's first TPC20 was showing crazy high IATs. Either Ed or TPC told him he needed to change his IC. He dropped a bunch of money getting a new IC, new intake, etc. Spent all that time and money, then the turbo blew up. It was the turbo all along. Lots of wasted time and money.

The added bonus that any time you bottom out, you're both saving weight and making it more difficult to ever remove your clamps.

I had forgotten about this cause Jeff post was plague by 🌈🤡 much like the ones in this post trying to change the subject when someone is in opposition to there beliefs or experience.
I think most people just had a problem with the "statistics" being used.

I've got a Vortex, and I'm realistically never going to end up with a TPC kit. Got no horse in the race, but shitty stats is shitty stats.
