We are using wix 51515r which is direct swap,but for your deal i would be using something you can take apart and look inside regularly to see its all good

Fram changed owners I believe and quality went to shit, there are a couple of videos on youtube about it showing what they are like inside now Shocked

Underbart att se den komma ihop.

Håller med om varningstecknet på HP1.
På en sådan maskin så är ju ett filter du kan ta isär, klart en fördel.
Kört System1 sedan 1985 och väldigt nöjd.
Liiite sugen på ett sådant filter som kompisen Jocke Dahlgren har i sin dragster. Dock en bit på dyra sidan, tycker jag.... en dag kanske. över 400 dollar.

Rag,
How does that work?
Will the CO2 be used across the boost solenoid to keep the wastegate closed?

Yes, you put a target boost on the magnetic valves. The first ones let´s the CO2 pass from the bottle at for instance 3 bars and the second valves regulates it down to what pressure you want on the hat on the WG.

Not 100% correct Wink))
The first one tries to adjust the pressure in the top of the wastegate correct, the secon one release the pressure of te top of the wastegate.
As this is a closed loop Control with a pressure sensor both valves can regulate Wink

Hi

What size is your manifold/header please ?

I'm thinking of going 1 3/4 inch on my engine (2789cc) but I've seen a few that look smaller diameter but they are also smaller engines.

Thanks

It’s for launch control. As soon as the pedal passes the sensor the EFI will get a signal that this has happened and then will handle what will happen with clutchmanagement and retarded ignition and what boost to run.
