Sweet!

So which Whoosh hot side pipe? The long one or short one?
I think Ron and I exchanged emails on this a while ago, but I may have accidently deleted it - I think he recommended the shorter one IIRC.

-- The longer seems like it's deleting a rubber/silicone connection, thus eliminating a least one potential failure point of a hose popping off.
-- Conversely, using the shorter one seems like if there's any movement, the extra rubber/silicone hose would better absorb any shifts in the piping.

Thoughts?

this is really just a choice
no power difference
We suggest the short style since it's FREE when you purchase one of our boost hose kits

For a complete noob to the FiST, in a nutshell,what is the difference between V1 iand V3?
core size, core efficiency, and end tank internal size are advantages the V3 has over the V1
also factory applied baked on heat coatings on the V3 vs spray paint on the V1
all for $100 more

Thank you Ron.

The V3 requires no cutting/modding of the bumper cover etc to fit to boot!!???

It fits without any cutting, but it’s a tight squeeze. I didn’t re-install my center splash guard bracket - there was no way that was going back on.

I may shave some of my inner-bumper to eliminate the (very minimal) increase in my hood/bumper gap.

YMMV.

That tends to be the norm with bigger intercoolers regardless of brand. That center spash guard bracket will only go on is you shave some of it.
