Since my last question was answered so quickly i figured id asked another. Iam new at this PSD thing Ive built jeeps all my life, anyway can someone tell me what the piont of the foil delete would be?:dunno: THANKS
the foil was installed by Ford to dampen turbo whistle. Take it off, and BAM! coupla extra Dbs of whistle, which is good for at least 2hp. Also, deleting the foil wrap and cleaning the tube real well takes at least 8 to 10oz. Off the weight of the vehicle, resulting in another .000048hp gain! :hehe:
Seriously, deleting the foil merely makes the engine bay look a good deal "Cleaner", And does make the turbo louder, but not much if you still have your hood insulation intact.
