Turbo Inlet Upgrade Kit

Published in the April 2013 Issue April 2013 News

The LLY Turbo Inlet Upgrade Kit is used to replace and upgrade the restrictive factory turbo inlet duct. The purpose is to create a free flowing path for the intake air that feeds the turbocharger. When installed, the intake air can free-flow into the turbo charger. The result is cooler air in the intake system. Cooler intake air allows the engine and cooling system to operate at a lower temperature.

The undersized factory turbo inlet creates a pressure drop in the intake air supply that feeds the turbo. When the intake air at this low pressure is compressed by the turbo, the intake air becomes super heated. The intake air enters the intercooler which absorbs some of the heat and then passes this heat to the radiator that is positioned directly behind the intercooler. The cooling efficiency of the radiator is reduced by the hotter than necessary airflow passing from the intercooler and through to the radiator. Since the intake air is as hot as it is, the com­bustion temperature is higher than necessary.

The Turbo Inlet Upgrade Kit from Pacific Performance Engineering corrects these issues and creates lower operating temperatures for better efficiency. The kit contains an intake duct, silicone hose and two T-Bolt clamps. (www.ppediesel.com/714-985-4825)

A SUPER-RARE SUPER BAJA!

September 2021

Many can say they’ve completed a triathlon, but how many can say they’ve won a gold medal in the triathlon at the Olympics? Many can say they’ve flown an aircraft, but how many can say they’ve done it in space? Being one of only a few is special. It’s unique. It sets you apart from others and in the truck scene, only 250 lucky diesel pickup enthusiasts will have the honor of saying they own and drive the slick design of the 2021 Ford Shelby F250 Super Baja.
