I've been running a modded Y-pipe for over a year. When everyone else was chasing non-vgt turbos listening to other ideas paid off. I'm sure if you dig around the boards you will find some old posts about this idea.

I never saw a thread on this mod, but I'm sure that I couldn't have been the only one to think of this mod. I took y pipe off and looked at it and thought I would try to mod the air flow on a stock y pipe. If some did done the same mod I don't want to take any credit away from them. I thought of it on my own and did it and shared it, never looked to see if there was any old threads or post for this same mod. I know you could go out and buy y pipe that are modded but this is a neat cheap trick that gets results. In the mean time dig away and see if anyone can find this same mod, I would like to see who had this idea before, and see if it was the same or different. Might be other ways out there that might be easier or better.

It is just basic hot rodding Adrian. I doesn't matter who thought of it first, I'm sure your posting the info has brought it to the attention of folks who otherwise hadn't known about it. Like I said on the phone when you first told me, I was talking with WLDHRSE the day before about doing the exact same thing. Anyway I think the "Mad Mod" has a nice ring to it. Mine came out real nice by the way.

Glad to hear it worked out for you, now if the guy building you a stage 4 would get busy and build you one you'll be set.
As far as posting mod just didn't want to think I was coping and tring to take credit. I want anyone with ideas for mods to come on and post away, only makes the 6.0's better.

The posts were by Wekiwa back in 2006 on The Diesel Garage.....you know him I'm sure.
His posts were about exhaust mods in particular having the parts ceramic coated. A fella posting up as Stuckinmud showed the mod in those posts.

Modded:



I'd have to check if I have pics of mine but I had Stuckinmud mod a pipe for me. It does exactly what it looks like it does smooths out the flow to feed the turbo proper.

I have no doubt that the mod works and what the y pipe mod that you have a picture of is a different way of doing the mod, and involved. I was thinking of same mod then I thought why weld a piece in when I can just fill the void with weld and then port the inside. The mod that I was sharing is just that simple, fill in void and port the inside. The pictures I took are hard to see what I did, but the ones that JUGERNAUT has on his thread are much better, of course he took it one step further.
