Gotcha -
I wasn't sure if maybe there was a direct relationship to horse power gain and the canutant valve with moving the hoses

Sounds good KG on doing the mod - put after I drive my car and get it on the road again.
We can work on the cars then we can do the electrical in your barn

Not sure if there is any huge advantage, but you don't want anything hot near the engine. Those hoses have hot fluid running through them so moving them is a good idea.

Nope. But, will now. Thanks, for sharing. These are great looking pieces to add a bit of extra flare to the the intake tubing on the TB.
I would have mine black powder coated for extra affect.

they may come in black actually. they give you a lot of play as well. once locked it the pipes are sealed together but still have plenty of travel.... as you can see... we even welded one to the throttle body.

That's some cool stuff your shop is doing..... You'll just have to give that clamp a pressure test when the car is done

Does the factory composite intake handle pressure well?

That's going to look really nice, and most likely you'll be the first. Can't wait to see pics. Awesome find Kyle. That's why I like researching on here, always something new to learn.
Off topic; Do you have an M6 or A6 transmission?

i bet if we put Russ in the back seat and you (you are much lighter than I) at the wheel we could see what it can do.

we have been tooling around the lake and the woods this afternoon.
I think it could use a little more tq to get up some of the larger hills here... but it will def work for now.

Dad is having a little bout right now with some of the cancer... with chemo taking some of his energy away, this will be just the thing to get him where he wants to go so he has energy when he gets there. i.e. - taking mom to the VFW for dinner, down to the lake, or anywhere his ass cares to go!!
