    Compared to the cluster FK many many pages back, I think this young pup is doing well. Looks good.

    Thanks!

    All depends on your setup really:

    I could see very to little no benefit if your top mount as your taking in the air from your engine bay (and the DP is under the hood as well and that thing gets scorching hot)

    With a bottom mount and especially if the charge piping is under the car in the Winter months here in Virginia with ambient temp of 30 degrees and below I could definitely see a benefit as long as your intake piping is drawing in ambient temp from outside the car as the engine bay temps are higher (and could heat the pipe).

    If I were you I would wrap the down pipe. I saw 200+ degree differences on my exhaust manifold wrapped vs not.

    not wrapped = 450-500 degrees
    wrapped = 200-250 degrees

    In your case your dumping 500 degree heat into your engine bay and it has no where to go.

    Somebody here noticed an improvement at the track with a wrapped pipe

    Decided to really get into the car today, dumped first and second for the first time. Car started going completely sideways so I had to let off.

    I've had my fair share of encounters as a youngin'

    Makes sense
    my down pipe is wrapped and blanket on turbo. The headlight cut out is nice being the fresh air goes direct to turbo filter
    definitely more power and seams to spool quicker

    Regarding side ways, lol, the cars like it and are controlable
    glad your enjoying!

    Didn't feel too controllable too me, the more gas the more sideways.

    Thank you

    Upgrading your LSD will keep you much more straight. For example, 3 clutch the car still kicks, but 1/2 as much as 2 clutch. 4 clutch the tires spin and you stay straight. This has been my experience with probably 15 LSD upgrades I've done 3/4 clutch.

    I was concerned that the 4-clutch would be twitchy transitioning on/off/on power but I have not found that to be the case. It's pretty predictable. What's another $500 or so anyway?
