Hey just wanted to share that I installed an intake on my F150 and noticed it didn’t have the metal fins in the intake tubes.
Cool. This is my first F150 and I kept hearing around intake fins. I was surprised to see none. Intake definitely louder going from stock to AFE !!Think the fins were always plastic rings. Others have mentioned that these have disappeared in recent models too.
On paper they make your turbos ever so slightly less efficient. But in reality it’s such a small difference you wouldn’t even notice.Is there any benefit removing (2018 2.7) them or any negative results? Just courious , if no lost in power, louder turbo noise would be cool.
I have an 18 and I don't think I can hear Turbo spool at all. I'm old, so it could be my hearing?Does anyone have some of those dealios that they removed? If it will keep my turbo sound down I would like that, and I’m 90% sure that my 2018 doesn’t have them.
Easy to see if you do or don't. Loosen this clamp, pull apart and you'll see right away at opening of PS turbo inlet pipe.Does anyone have some of those dealios that they removed? If it will keep my turbo sound down I would like that, and I’m 90% sure that my 2018 doesn’t have them.
