depends on your turbo location, it could work but i dunno never touch that IC stuff it gives you lag, the msm IC is abit small anyway, why not get a real one or WI

Keep us up to date on how that works. It seems too good to be true.

We can only grow if we let each other know what bothers us.

well, that video i posted shows that it works. It seems to be some kind of hard solder that melts at 750 degrees... and then gets hard again very fast.. id say its some sort of aluminum alloy, but did you see how hard it was when he was drilling it?? I guess i will get to test is when it comes in

i cut the pipes off my DSM intercooler last night, and cut the holse for the new pipes. I didnt realize how thin the material is that that thing is made out of.. cant be more than .020" and it has like .100" plates rivited all over it to strengthen it i guess.. Weird design. Just enuff flat place to poke 2 2 inch pipes comming right out of the top though, i think this thing is gonna turn out nice... as long as that durafix solder stuff actualy works.
