" I was at Montreal this year and saw him win for the first time. Man what a show! The sound wasn't crazy loud so we could actually be close to the track without having our ears bleed but I really enjoyed the turbo sound. "

" Great race! The fact that Lewis Hamilton was able to start so far back in the pack and finish in the top 3 again is amazing! It also shows just how dominant the Mercedes cars are. "

" I've been told anything under 20 degrees above ambient is great, anything over and you start losing power.....

My SC kit does a phenomenal job of keeping IAT's in check, averaging 8-14 degrees above ambient with normal driving. Start to push the car and they go up but then cool down quickly while driving normal again.

Please don't take my word for it though, admittedly I'm not a expert on the subject. "

" [QUOTE=VargasTurboTech;584909]Last week a customer in the UAE emailed me asking for you direct email. I asked him what he needed it for, he told me through some GTR connection Dodson had mentioned they wanted to get a hold of you about the DCT upgrade, I gave him your email and today you announce you are going to be running the Dodson upgrade, seems like more than a coincidence to me. Exchange is below I was hoping something came out of it.

How much torque are they rated at?

to give you a little more info into WHY hollow shafts with larger outer diameters are stronger and better than smaller solid shafts...in torsional stress, the torsional stress = applied torque x radius. So, at the center of the shaft, since the radius = 0 there, the stress = 0. so, until you move far enough away from the center of the shaft to start generating an amount of stress that you need to start considering, the material can be removed for weight and therefore requires less torque to spin the shaft. When you start taking into account the shear forces is when you get into wall thickness and that's just determines by the cross section, which you get by subtracting the area of the inner diameter from the area of the outer diameter. Really fun stuff actually! Hope that helps you understand a little about why. "

TY, that is what I am trying to find out, what is a DANGEROUS IAT at 85F, 120F, 110F, 100F, 150F, no-one seems to be able to tell me...

I did some runs early today in 65F temps and got some sick quick times for a K24 996 Turbo, and a measure at 577 rwhp (via PBOX in 4th at 125 mph) "
