So I finally had the time and urge to do this mod...

replaced the factory throttle pipe with an HKS 60mm pipe. The factory pipe is kinked in the middle and as i discovered when i took it off has a ROUGH finish inside of it...

throttle response and top end is much better ...

next on the to do:

install midpipe and FCD's
install my overboost pulley
custom 3" intake
custom catch can
new brakes

Well that oem pipe just looks dumb. lol. Talk about flow obstruction.

it's still undersized actually.... the throttle body opening is 2-3mm larger than the new pipe, and much larger than the old on...
