Remember I never said I knew all of this. Hell I don't get alot about engines. But i do understand more than most. My initial question was very basic and the really smart people seemed to answer it smartly. The rest are just trying to prove they are smart or being ******** so i'm done with this thread.

Thanks to the people who answered my question on what boost they have seen run on built engine. I bet hustler likes the few respones I got. Since his question was basically the same thing.

What the **** does the volume of the intake have to do with this discussion? Red haring?

Usually when a thread goes this many pages, something worthwhile is being discussed.
Except with Peter Pan.
Here's the rest of the pics.
Sounds kinda tinny now. I don't like it.
This thread is sucking ***, so why not threadjack all over it.

Scavenge the flanges and have a muffler shop weld a pipe into it. With the right muffler and a turbo, test pipes sound bitchin'. Mine has NO rasp.

After reading this, I kind of feel like you've been blowing bars all day.

Take a 3" hole-saw cutter to each end of the cat. Then slide a 3" pipe in it. Weld the cat-cover to the pipe. Weld flanges on. 3" pipe that looks like a cat.

I think the stock diameter is entirely too small for a turbo motor. Even a small one.

On most forums they just ban trolls. Too bad we don't do that anymore.

Also using a pressure washer will blow that **** out of the catalytic converter in a hurry. If you don't have one, go to the car wash.

Hey, I'm in Florida! We don't have to prove we've even got cats. No smog checks. No inspections.
I just wanted to do something to the car because I could. I'll get a real exhaust fabbed when I bolt the TD04L-13T on it.

We've got an autocross next Saturday and I wanted to see if the car revved a little better without the restriction. I think it does slightly better at the 5500-7000 rpm range. But, if I knew it would sound tinny, I wouldn't have done it.

P.S. Signing off for the night...

holy ****. I hate people like that. You give them an answer and they get all retarded because you did not tell them what they wanted to hear.

OP needs to go turbo a civic with a D15 and shut the **** up.

I read it as well, and learned a few things myself as well

this chucky guy reminds me of some of the ricers that would pull up to me in my wrx and the first question would be: " AY BRO HOW MUCH PSI ARE YOU RUNNING ON THAT BEAST?"...
-"18psi, why do you ask?"
-"DAAAAAMN, it must be fast cause thats a lot of psi"
