I understand it does sound funky the route I am taking, and the possibility of still popping lines.
But I just figured if I got a down pipe it would add to heat and I would still be limited to the boost I could run with the stock tmic. Probably maxing out out at 17 psi on the safe side.
So I just went with the tmic, so I could still get decent boost and not have to worry about tmic going out because of higher boost levels and combat heat at same time. precautionary method I guess.
I hope blowing lines off is no longer and issue as I worm clamped and ziptied the hose under the manifold that goes bpv and hit up just about every other line with a clamp or zip tie.
Is there special zip ties by chance designed specifically for boost/vac or any other hose for that matter?
I am using some 8 inch electrical cable double lock zip ties but I do not know how they will hold up under heat in the long run.
