Holy crap... does that whole front subframe situation have to come out to get to the turbos?
Reasonable explanation, but I already don't like the stock turbo lag.I'm gonna give my theory on how this affects performance based on my limited research and understanding of fluid dynamics, but I am by no means an expert, so take this with a few grains of your preferred seasoning.
A larger inducer will be able to "scoop" more atmospheric air, so all else being equal, you get a higher flow capacity. A larger exducer will "throw" the air with greater force, so you get a higher pressure differential across the wheel. A larger inducer will slightly increase rotational mass, and will be moving a greater mass of air, thus will slightly increase lag. A larger exducer will significantly increase rotational mass, and it will be putting more energy into moving the air, therefore a larger exducer will affect lag more than a larger inducer would.
Not saying much. That's like saying I only sharted a little bit.Really? Compared to every other turbo'd car I've driven, I barely notice the Sport even has lag at all.
I own a Foxbody currently, owned a '69 F-100 with a FE block (seller claimed 390 which I discovered was actually a 360) and an F-150 with a 300-6, all with manual transmissions. I know what throttle response is. I also owned a '88 Turbocoupe with a t3/t4 turbo, had a good buddy with '04 STI and another good buddy with a big turbo Mk3 Supra, so I know what turbo lag is. Both have their own fun little perks.Not saying much. That's like saying I only sharted a little bit.
I guess there are fewer and fewer people who own (or have ever even driven) old cable throttle big block cars.
Even a TVS'd coyote is night and day from an ECO (still has electronic throttle delay, but at least no lag after that)
Damn how did you know your trans was dunzo ?I have no warranty. I just paid out of pocket to replace my first transmission i blew up a couple months ago. They voided all warranty the moment I tuned it. With the new Fords that have the Ford pass app, nearly everything you do is logged and sent to ford.
