Looked down them more times than I can count. Your not gonna gain any flow and your more than likely gonna cause a lopey idle and possibly hurt driveability and maybe power as well. Same goes with larger lines. They don't help power on these VP trucks. All they do is cause lopey idles and poor driveability.More fuel flow. If you have ever looked down a stock connector tube you would understand. I dont even see how fuel got through there!
Sure there is. People THINK they need bigger tubes and lines. People THINK they help. Thus, if people THINK they need these things, then the market is gonna supply them regardless of whether or not they work.If it didnt have any affect then there wouldnt be a market for them and people wouldnt sell them. I think rollin coal hit it on the head though, can the pump supply the volume. We will see, got the connector tubes drilled today and as soon as the lines get here I will get it all put on and report the findings.
Nope. Just a realist that's been in this sport for way to long.Ah... A glass half empty kind of guy. :w:
No offense but even though you may be convinced, numerous dyno's say other wise. But hopefully your dyno runs will prove me wrong.I am convinced if you have bigger injectors you need bigger connector tubes to get the most out of your injectors. Did a boosted launch @ 10 psi and had to be light on the throttle to keep the wheels from spinning right off the truck, locked up the converter and hammered it breaking the tires loose at each gear held steady @ 54 psi When I hit 3400 rpm I backed out of the throttle and I felt the truck settle back down from all the torque it had on it. It was a pretty crazy run. The smoke was not bad but more than stock tubes and fuel psi held @ 13 WOT. The only down side I have found is when decelerating between 50 and 40 with very light throttle it gets very jerky I unlocked my torque converter (I have a full manual valve body) and it went away.
Don't know if that's a compliment or insult but either way, I don't know a lot about these trucks, just been around long enough to see what works and what doesn't. I'm sure there are certain cases that the bigger tubes work but for 99.9% of trucks they don't and usually just give a lopey idle.well i drilled mine a long time ago because i had another set, and the only thing it did was lope in a crappy crappy way afterwards! i wanna put my others back in but i need new o-rings! so they will have to wait for now!
Listen to Tyler A.K.A BigBlue, because he knows these trucks better than all of us!
