No clue, I know what I hope it is but I don't want to guess. I should be getting to the dyno in the next couple of weeks.

I was at a performance exhaust shop on Saturday having flanges welded onto my dp and exhaust so while I was there I decided to have the guy there make me a new hot side charge pipe.

He even welded beads on the ends for me. I have the FM silicone hose on the cold side so now I should never blow any couplers. Also, I sware the turbo spools a bit faster with that new pipe.
