Hey guys. Happy New Year to everyone. So sorry for lack of updates, we are crazy busy at shop around xmas and new years. Ok so we havent done much more on the Stinger except finalising pricing for intakes, cooler kit and exhaust. Hopefully we have the ecu cracked and will be looking at tuning in the next week or two. I will post some prices n pics on the kits very shortly for you guys in the US. We are just working out freight costs atm. Will keep you guys updated, hoping to run an 11 sec et before end of month :)

Looks great [MENTION=217]Jonnytig[/MENTION]. What size IC piping did you go with? How much bigger is compared to the OEM?

Also in regards to the intake pipes, why did you decide to go with that design instead of something like the K&N, with less bends and shorter pipe length?

Heres a couple more pics then :)
I see you changed the T-Plenum were the two turbo outlets join, is it a Y-Plenum now for better flow or did you just make the pipes larger or both?

We went with this design as we wanted to run a much larger filter and we also wanted to put more filter area in the ducting for cool air. It worked quite well and picked up a fair bit more power than other intakes we have seen

We ramped up the hot side piping slightly to 2.5" and then went to 3" on the cold side :)

We made significant changes here. The factory splitter is quite restrictive and we have built it as a merged y pipe. We also increased sizing to dual 2.5" :)
Here's a pic for you

Thats excellent. So let me get this straight,

Hot pipe - Dual 2.5" pipes into single 2.5" pipe via Y-Pipe merge, then into intercooler 2.5" inlet.
Cold pipe - Out of the intercooler 3" outlet and into 3" piping to throttle body.

correct?

FYA, more pics please.

Hi guys. Still waiting for freight pricing to be finalised as they can vary quite a bit. Trying to get the best deal between freight providers. Also will be setting up a paypal account. Nearly there, my apologies for the hold up
