Christmas came early

Two of Santa's elves from SOC07 sent me a gift. Apparently it wasn't big enough, so I inherited it.
Now all I have to do is find the time to install my gift!
(remember, us old guys don't like mods)

Nice.


Make sure you double up your calcium pills, to make your bones stronger to better fight torque steer. You need to fight osteoperosis at your age.

I don't care how much of a bitch it is to install. It's got to flow better than stock.

I'll just call in my detail team for an install.

Is it a forge? Can't tell by the pic. If so, then it's a piece of cake to put on.
Have fun

It's not that tough. It certainly is a "tight" fit, but it fits right into the factory hoses.


I'm stage III and this made a huge difference in how the car pulled.

I swear, that lood about the same size as a stock SRT-4 IC, which is a good flowing unit.

Someone's gotta try it...

Dimensions?

I am glad it could get to good hands. Great to meet you at SOC.

Call if you need any help on the install, Steven or I have done plenty.

I was surprised when I pulled the stock one off, and it isn't that bad. I never noticed a difference power wise, but I didn't heat soak at the track day. Not sure if you did or not, however.

It hasn't been over 85deg since I put it on, and I only have ever heat soaked when it's well above 95 so

Wow Jack, I hear you have an SRT-4 IC sitting in your attic that you'll let go for next to nothing just to see it go into a local saab...I wonder if it would work? Someone should post those dimensions and see if they can get it to work!

I also hear it's good until 300 hp, that's awesome!
