CFM Y pipe

This looks like a cool product and a very good idea. Wonder how well it will work.

Re: CFM Y pipe

Ford wants $600+ for the OBS guys that are looking for one to convert to 3" intakes.
This might be an option for some...

Re: CFM Y pipe

Here's my question...

Does it literally separate the two? If so, it's the dumbest pos I've ever seen. For starters, what is the total effected surface area between the two ducts? 4 square inches? With no fins, nothing. The amount of heat that's going to travel through, and actually make it's way into the intake air is not worth anyone's time in the first place....

Secondly, and more importantly...

The BIGGEST thing the stock upper intake manifold does is connect the inlet side to the compressor outlet, which is BOLTED to the engine via the turbo pedestal. This keeps the intake side from lifting off the lower manifolds under boost and popping out of the silicone couplers. JUST like the hypermax or similar intakes love to do. By having it all tied together it CANNOT lift and pop out of the boots because it's mechanically tied to the engine.

By separating them like that, you gain NOTHING and lose EVERYTHING. I'm sure they will tell you the problem is the inferior stock couplers once that starts happening.... Yet I have run over 90lbs of boost on the same stock couplers that have been on my engine since it was made in 1999.

If they still tied them together to stop this, what was the point again? According to them?

(This is complete bs. The ability of the tube wall to put heat into that air is not worth anyone's time)

IMO of course.

Talking Re: CFM Y pipe

. I wondered how long it would be before Chuck jumped on this. I think if I was gonna do something like that I would take two stock ones and just cut them apart making two peices, but I agree with Charles. The whole thing is made liek that for a reason, and I don,t think you would see much of a drop in temps over the stock configuration.

Re: CFM Y pipe

Obviously "the Charles" has spoken out of his "inaccurate information hole" and as such posted an invalid epinion

and that goes for everybody else that agreed with him without taking the time to investigate the product being discussed.
