    VT hot pipes and how they compare

    Many hot pipes are available for the VT now so here is a comparison of the ones I've tested:

    Just as with an intercooler, the hot pipe adds power from increased flow, heat dissipation, and lower pressure drops. In the case of the hot pipe, higher flow is the main factor as iat drops between them do not greatly affect power.

    Here are how they compare flow wise when tested on my flow rig: low number = bad, high number = good

    Oem: 206 CFM
    MBRP: 206 CFM
    845 with FMIC kit: 215 CFM
    ORHP: 253 CFM
    HF ORHP: 270 CFM

    Once again, what exactly did you test this with, and at how many inches of vacuum? The OEM figures just don't mesh up with anything we have found.

    My rig does not test based on vacuum but rather uses a given power to drive the compressor so can't be compared easily to other methods.

    Damnit Zapper, GTFO out of here with trying to start an argument. Who cares if trdtoy is not using a 'proper' method to calculate airflow. Based on his testing he can still tell which items flow better than stock. Stop trying to show some expertise in a field that we don't care about.

    If the tests are internally consistent and repeatable, that makes his data relevant when compared against itself. He could use a leaf blower to levitate a girbil in front of a yardstick, for all I care.

    This is exactly right.

    We see flow results using the same gauge and air source. The variable is the parts themselves, so we can see how they fair against each other in a consistent and repeatable test.

    This has become annoying. How about we just ignore your posts since your forte is to criticize rather than provide information. The only thing a test needs is consistency across each item that is tested. Then you just compare the results and you can see how each one performed. He's not producing stand alone statistics like rated HP or Torque numbers, he's just comparing the flow rate using the same standard across each example.

    Trust the user, people! The ORHP is amazing and flows with precision. I can't wait to get the HFORHP!
