    Ricky, it's 10 bux cheaper.

    I'd like to see some other sizes, though I think my intercooler piping is 2.5 inch.. hm..

    I'd also like to see the benefit's over stock.

    Reason being is that he can invest the time into making a model without having put a single dollar into material or machining costs. If it flops (due to not enough interest) then all he loses is the time making the model, instead of cash on material and machining time as well.

    Looks like SW to me...

    If this thing is made well, Id say its prolly better than an ATS inlet simply for the fact that its O-Ringed.

    rob, i'd trust an OEM metal gasket over a rubber gasket like that anyday.
    the only advantage i can see to this is that your going to make them in custom sizes...
    looks like a fun project none the less.

    like i said, we will test it at 120 psi. if nothing leaks from 120 psi, nothing will leak from a turbo, havent herd of more than 61 psi on a supra, not sure what the highest boosted 3s is. those high horsepower pull tractors that you see racing are super high boost. close to 100 psi i think.

    if anything is going to leak in the system, it will be some clamp on the intercooler pipes before it is the oring.

    Sorry Manny. ORings are used when pressure can exceed a gasket.

    Again, I say, if its Oringed, and the Oring works correctly, it will seal better than an ATS Inlet.

    Theres a reason why they use Orings in HIGH pressure applications.

    plus gaskets are pounched out and orings cause OEM's to have to do more work to make a place on the part for the oring to seal. gaskets are cheaper in the long one. part will be ready next week for testing and for sale.

    A square block or do you get them in a rough shape?

    Just out of curiosity. It seems like a waste of most metal during the milling process. Or can you reclaim the scraps and reforge them again?

    well we recycle the alum, but its actually a 12 ft bar, but it is close to the max out side edges. it would be cheaper (in the long run) to make a mold and cast them, but to have the mold and everything made is really expensive. also, cast alum is crappy compaired to machined, but forged is better.

    cast= mold under low pressure
    mim= medal injection molded is ok, but expensive to set up.
    billet= machined from solid piece
    forged= mold under high pressure

    Why is there no bead on the end to help seal the IC piping?
    You took the time to O-ring it and make it nice and you didn't bother to bead it?

    While the ATS version doesn't have an O-ring it's got a bead on the end....
    And I'd worry MUCH more about my pipe blowing off from lack of a bead than from a gasket not sealing in the rear. Even a paper gasket [mine made from a manilla folder] will hold a good amount. Mine held 18 PSI.
    I bet the IC piping will blow off at 18 PSI on that.....

    i just got an email that there was any activity... do you have beads on ur IC pipe? get t-bolt clamps, it wont leak or blow off.

  22. #22

    Default

    I had a 205 IC with the adaptor, so I don't need T bolt clamps.

    However, I strongly suggest you bead those if you want to sell them. Even with T bolt clamps a hose can blow if there's no bead.

    Thirded. I blew off about every pipe you could imagine on my supra, included the TB connection once. T-bolts helped, but on one elbow nothing stopped it until I had beads put on it. Bead seems too easy to skip, IMO.
