    New Intake

    Just installed the LPE with the stealth FFV!
    This thing revs like an animal , and sounds like a Lion Roaring when WOT.

    Big Thankyou to Joeyctsv for the recomendation. I previously had only the FFV. He had the LPE, and I liked the sound of his, and he said there was a noticable increase in power.
    The addition of the larger filter in the LPE was what I think the V was missing.

    I have not had a chance to really wind it out in 1-2-3rd, but just getting into it a little in second there is a noticable difference. I was able to redline 2nd gear in less time and the car pulled hard all the way to the rev limiter. I will report back tonight when I go out to my TEST road.
    It really feels like this was the one thing I needed to get all the mods working in harmony.
    Now, one more thing. Gonna send Stealth back the PCM for a re-tune and then off to the Dyno.
    Goal: 385-390RWHP
    1/4 Mile 12's.

    I'm glad to see you liked the LPE intake. I knew that's what you were missing. We have to go for another run now. My exhaust came in today and it might be on by tonight.

    Re: New Intake

    The week of LPE install threads. Looks like a lot of people took advantage of the deal LPE offered.

    When I installed mine, I could not get the K&N filter to sit horizontal in the new 'enclosure'. Mine sits at about a %45 angle, being higher in the back. Is this typical?

    Second, since the snorkel is removed, does anyone fear a water ingestion issue, if you hit a big puddle? I'd think it might be possible, but highly improbable. Thoughts?

    Finally how often is everyone removing their K&N, and doing the wash/oil routine?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Re: New Intake

    Horizontal or at an angle doesn't matter.

    What I found that did matter was the remaining snorkel remnants that had to be removed.

    I suggest that you use metal tape (copper or aluminum) to seal off all the cracks in the air cleaner compartment.

    Also, you are gonna have to hit one big puddle to worry about water ingestion!

    Re: New Intake

    I tried to post some pics, I hope I did it right!
    OK It worked. Now the only modification I had to do for this combo to work( FFV/LPE) was to place a zip tie around the gigantic FFV tube! This was done to keep the rubber coupling from touching the pulley.
    Perhaps Stealth can get one made up that does not have that bulge in it.
    Other than that this set up feels and sounds killer!

    Re: New Intake

    Your MAF appears to be rotated 180 degrees from stcok, although I'm assuming that it doesn't really mater.

    Those plates are just screaming for a ticket

    Willy, you'll love the tune that is dialed in for the LPE-FFV combo. CVP and I are running it today; Urby will have his tomorrow.

    Look familar right down to the tie wrap?

    Urb,

    The bottom probably didn't seat good. Mine did it too when I first installed it. A little adjustment and it fits great. You guys really like that LPE sticker on the box???

    LPE sticker came that way - agree, it is kind of ugly. The V is getting a full fluid makeover tonight @ 15,000 miles perhaps the sticker shall die a horrid, torn death.

    To injest water, you would have to go through a puddle that's at least 2 feet deep. There's nothing to worry about. I've had my V in severe rainstorms and never had a problem.

    All done. I never would've guessed it, but the sticker was of course good for 5 hp.
