overkill much?

Do you bros. Think my 2" inlet on my turbo is slowing response and the standard 2.5" housing would make a difference?

.5" difference?

2.5" sq inch area: 19.6"
2" sq inch area: 12.6"
Flow rate increases expoentially with an increase in diameter size.

cross-sectional area:

A=pi*(d/2)^2

3.14 x (1.25)^2 = 4.90625

3.14 x (1)^2 = 3.14


volume:

V=L*pi*r^2 - comparing two 10" lengths of different diameter.

V = 10" x 3.14 x 1.25^2 = 49.0625
V = 10" x 3.14 = 31.4


so 56% more flowzzzzzzzzzzzz with a 25% increase in diameter.



Edit: nice math, fae.

I have to drive to Houston tomorrow. How retarded would it be for me to go home after work, wire in an LC-1, zip tie a CLT sensor, run a vacuum hose, plug in my computer, and tune on the way to Houston the next day? I'm like a child with a new toy.

I'm seriously tempted to not hook up the calibration button and light on my LC-1 in teh daily and calibrate the sensor with the computer when I change the oil no less than an 8-week interval. Thoughts?

where did you get 19.6 sq.in. and 12.6 sq.in. from?

even if you had done a square: 2.5 x 2.5 = 6.25 sq.in.

The hell??

Russia working on electromagnetic radiation guns

Quote:
WHILE many believed it to be an April Fool's Day joke, Vladimir Putin has confirmed Russia has been testing mind-bending psychotronic guns that can effectively turn people into zombies.

The futuristic weapons - which attack their victims' central nervous system - are being developed by scientists and could be used against Russia's enemies and even its own dissidents by the end of the decade.

Mr Putin has described the guns, which use electromagnetic radiation like that found in microwave ovens, as entirely new instruments for achieving political and strategic goals.

Plans to introduce the super-weapons were announced by Russian defence minister Anatoly Serdyukov.

While the technology has been around for some time, MrTsyganok said the guns were recently tested for crowd control purposes.

“When it was used for dispersing a crowd and it was focused on a man, his body temperature went up immediately as if he was thrown into a hot frying pan," Mr Tsyganok said.

"Still, we know very little about this weapon and even special forces guys can hardly cope with it,'' he said.

Research into electromagnetic weapons has been carried out in the US and Russia since the '50s but it appears Putin has stolen a march on the US.

Precise details have not been revealed but previous research has shown that low-frequency waves or beams can affect brain cells, alter psychological states and make it possible to transmit suggestions and commands directly into someone's thoughts.

Mr Putin said the technology is comparable in effect to nuclear weapons but “more acceptable in terms of political and military ideology''.

Mr Serdyukov said the weaponry based on new physics principles - direct-energy weapons, geophysical weapons, wave-energy weapons, genetic weapons and psychotronic weapons - were part of the state arms procurement program for 2011-2020.

Maybe there will be a reason to purchase that zombie safe house, after all.

Last year Texan Austin Fleming’s created the Vagabond Mobile Safe House Device, which incorporates potable water filtration, tracking devices and photovoltaic cells into a handy and stylish leather backpack.

The whole things flips out armadillo-style in under three minutes and is covered in reflective coating to confuse drooling marauders.

The design won the 2011 Architects Southwest Zombie Safe House competition.

BEGi did this when I first bought the turbo from them. I recently scored a normal GT2860rs compressor housing, not certain on its size. My car has always had more "lag" than it should. Oh well, more money.
