No. It's useless unless you get good camshafts with increased compression ratio.

Does anybody knows if the stock intake pipe can be used with j35TB? I remember that i read somewhere, that you can heat up the pipe and then fit it on j35tb. Is this true?

thanks

You can use the OEM pipe but after a while it'll split. I've got the FD2 one which fits, but you need to stretch it as it not really long enough.

So, does the fd2 one work well on the long run? How much did you pay?

thanks

Mines still OK, but I'm sure I've seen some posts where that has also split. I think Injection Imports can get the FD2 pipes for about 50 GBP

F1le is correct.

money is best spent elsewhere they do nothing for basic breather mods alone.

I'm running OEM pipe for 2 years fitted to large 70mm TB with no problem at all, the clue was to put heat on it during fitting over TB. We used this type of heater which is being used when you are tinting windows. During this heat treatment rubber became very ductile (I hope I used a correct word) and it was easy to put it over larger TB.

So basicly, i wouldnt get one single hp on stock cams with bigger tb? On that matter, is the rrc a waste of money too?

Here you can find :

1/ Thin line - K20 with cams, exhaust, increased c/r but on OEM inlet manifold (RSP) and stock TB
2/ Thick line - as above but on RRC + large TB

You can answer yourself if it's worth or not. I assume if you have no cams the difference will be much smaller.

Re: Throttle body

One way of looking at it is by getting the TB you will future proof it for bigger mods. I have one and my pipe split last week. Need to sort a long term solution for it
