Could somebody tell me how I'd get in contact with Ben if I don't have Facebook.
To be able to adjust spool rate, you need a controlled fresh air supply(+ve pressures) via a needle valve, "Teed" into vac line supply to actuator.Fatz are indicating they don’t supply a boost nipple on the intake at all, just a filter that allows that boost line to be capped off and cable tied out of place somewhere. See correspondence here
"Sure thing Jack, our pipe does not have the Boost vent port as we supply the inline filter for the line, as the intake is under vacuum the boost vent port is only used as a return and is generally not referenced by any of the boost controllers or software - this means the vent can be just vented to the atmosphere when you insert the filter into the end of the vent line, after this is done you can cable tie the boost vent line out of the way higher in the engine bay or shorten the line for a neater look."
Does this seem right? I cant see why the tillix kit would run a line to the intake pipe if it's not needed at all?
this short line would then be deleted I think... I believe is the vacuum source for the needle valve. Not sure how it operates without a vacuum source??
Agree, it is so easy to build your own out of short silicone sections and 3" ally tube, and build in all the fittings required to make it idiot proof. Then at a later date if a different turbo or inlet is fitted only the last bit needs to be changed.Just a note of caution @jackbyo If you do manage to produce better more volume spool, that silicone hose will distort under spool acceleration causing the hose to close off restricting air supply to your turbo.It will probably work on STD power ZD30. Those moulded silicone hoses of that length need a support binder moulded into the silicone, from the photo it doesn't have any evidence of a binder. If you do see or feel the hose distorting you can cut the hose in the middle and slip in a short piece of 3 inch alloy tube to support the hose. I have used these hoses and have had our own hoses made and they distort badly even with a binder on a eclipse turbo. Hence the tube fit mod to solve the problem.
My needle valve is in cab, so I have a silencer from a pneumatic exhaust valve from a solenoid as a filter under the dash, pic in my build thread. I have the pick up for clean air to my Digibooster vacuum solenoid tapped into one of the 3" ally sections I have on my airbox to turbo setup, again in build thread.Thanks guys. I had originally wondered if I could modify the forefront pipe, but because of that vacuum port right at the first bend I didn’t think it would be possible.
Different story now realising that port isn’t needed if running the needle valve elsewhere.
one problem is I’ve also ordered a fabwitz 2.5” turbo inlet. The stock inlet is 2” isnt it?
If so the forefront pipe won’t join the fabwitz inlet
that’s a great setup. Definitely planning on running the needle in the cab. I like the idea of aggressive spool when required and then backing it off when sitting on the expressway.My needle valve is in cab, so I have a silencer from a pneumatic exhaust valve from a solenoid as a filter under the dash, pic in my build thread.

Works well mate, pulling very good grunt through it. Are you talking about the turbo itself or the diam of the std inlet bend casting?that’s a great setup.

Do you happen to know the diameter of the stock turbo inlet?
By all accounts they are fantastic air boxes. Probably the best flowing and filtering option available off the shelf for a GU from what I understand.Just saw this on Facebook. I know it's not the title of the thread but fits the theme. Maybe someone reading this that's interested.
Can you post up some photos for us non-facebooking kind of peopleJust saw this on Facebook. I know it's not the title of the thread but fits the theme. Maybe someone reading this that's interested.
Sent you a PM with Ben's contact details.
Will contact Ben and get back to you mate.
Hi Bidja, could you please get me in contact with Ben also as I don’t have FB either.Will contact Ben and get back to you mate.
