Never heard of these? Whats the intent for it to do?
Ported TB’s usually pick up power across most of the rev range given adequate fueling....im chasing every bit of efficiency i can find.

I certainly wouldnt pretend to tell anyone this should be their first mod. But with the mods already done, and a blower planned this summer, im at a point where I can make use of it. We’ll see what improvements it is able to net mpg wise. It would be impossible to feel a 5-10hp gain; doubly so when it affects the majority of the rev range. The sound in the intake is much different though. The “nozzle” sound is noticeable.

We’ll see how much of a difference it ends up making if any. I am surprised at how much material came out of it, and how much the sound changed. Enough so that ill see about putting the stocker back on for a run when i pre-blower baseline

Tapped into my rear ARB air line (in/under the rear bumper) with a valve to supply my Air Lift rear airbags. Used a TPMS kit meant for a motorcycle to monitor the pressure in the bags. Will see how it works once the bed is loaded and bags are aired up to higher psi.

Worked on my skid plate hitch. This is a project that i have been very slowly working on in my free time. I hope to button it up by the end of the week but I thought that last week.

Going to slide the square tubbing in and bolt it to an excising hole on the back of the hitch to hold it in place. That way there is no chance of bending the bottom plate.

Good coat of primmer. Maybe paint tomorrow.
