Hey guys,

Im finally getting ready to start my big turbo build. I'm looking for feedback on whether or not charge pipes are a necessity.

If not specifically a necessity, what are the full benefits to upgrading them?

I'm also wondering if anyone has ran the PRL charge pipes on the Mishimoto FMIC? Any fitment issues?

Thanks.

I have the HPS charge pipes on my Accord and also the PRL FMIC. No issues of fitment for me. I believe the big benefit is less restrictions to airflow is the reason to upgrade charge pipes. I could be wrong.

Thanks Brother, I always value your advice. I was curious if there would actually be any performance increase. More airflow is always a good thing.

I Found n Tuned Vehicles the Exit Pipe on Turbo's to be most Influencing . . Reducing Drag , Gaining Quicker Spool Up etc.

Larger Funnel type Induction Hose ( Tapered ) helped - Certainly theses Small Stock Air Boxes could have been ( Designed ) Better . .

Also to Keep Air Speed - Below 163 Mph beside all Other Reasons ./.
Anything over that like 180~200 Mph starting Making Heat
Been few Years since I did some of this math , so Kinda Goes like this : 7000 Rpm x 2 Liter / Divided by Two (crankshaft rotations) = 14000 Liters / 2 = 7000 Liters then / Divided By 1000
Equal to 7 Cu Meters of Air Passing through Motor every Min. x 60 Min. or 420 Cu Meters every Hr. . .

This at Wider Open 7 CU. Meters could Burn all Oxygen in Your garage in 12 Min. , but that's Not where I was Going ./.
I'm Looking at Friction through Stock Plumbing :whistle::unsure::coffee:

That's with Turbo - No Being Loaded or No Motor Load ..

Turbo Loaded or on Dyno ~ Approx ~ 30%~34% more Air being Forced in Under Boost . .
Now Looking at 9.5 Cubic Meters & On a Cranked Up Stage 2 - Larger Turbo - 44~48% may be seeing 11 Cu Meters ..

Convert all that U end up with Cu Ft Min. Going through 2" Pipe where stock isn't even that in many Places VS Stepping Up to 2.5"
Hard Pipe Kit - Crunching some Numbers - Starting to look like Even Stage 2 on R Type Turbo needs Kit !

That said , I have always Found getting Boost Out of Turbo to Inter_cooler more % = Larger Gain ..
Hence the New Larger Opening Design on Civic si & Civic R Inter_coolers ..


Just Me - on Build I was Doing ~ I'd be Porting the " Turbo Exit " & " Exit Pipe " even on R Type set up .
