    Thanks X. I didn't find a link for the valve springs? How far are you along on your build?

    Ya, I didn't see them listed on their site either.. but that's where I bought mine from.

    Motor build is complete, but still more performance to be had out of the blower. That should be coming up this spring/summer. :D

    BTW, the pistons LCE sells are CP, and their rods are Pauter as well. :thumbsup:

    this should be a sticky for sure and linked in the performance/new member section because there are so many questions about all of these products

    Cams should be changed to LC Engineering. Even at that, they still source them from www.webcamshafts.com

    STS for Turbo.....well, after all of the trouble I and others have been through, it is still a source, but not a good one. At all... sadly.

    TTC Performance: Not sure if they are still doing performance stuff anymore. I honestly haven't checked in a while, but even they were sourcing their camshafts through Webcamshafts.com

    Other than that, I agree with you TacomaGus. :thumbsup:

    I was wondering about CFM numbers for the stock intake and the aftermarket intakes.

    I would like the same for the exhaust too if possible.

    I didn't see Gibson Exhaust in your list.
    Thanks

    To be able to do that, one would need a bench flow testing device, or some form of aftermarket EMS that can read the MAF sensor. The UCON and X-1 both are MAF based EMS devices, and can read the g/s (grams per second) of air flow across it. Based on the known I.D. of the tubing which it is in.

    So you would have to make the call out to those which have those devices, and as well hope that someone has a stock truck, with one of those EMS' to compare to a truck that has an aftermarket intake.

    That may not work well due to the different levels if induced MAF sensor error.

    For example, the Volant induces error on the positive side so the flow numbers on the MAF will say it makes WAY more power than stock, but put it in the dyno you will likely see a loss of power of about 15 RWHP.

    Note: Could add the JBA LT headers to go with the Doug Thorley ones.

    Also, the X-1 is no longer sold by URD, but could be supplemented with the UCON system
