Re: Turbo spooling louder

Intercooler piping upgrade removes the turbo muffler and increases turbo noise.

Re: Ranger PX2 Intercooler Pipe Upgrade

Most likely that it’s just the extra noise because the turbo “muffler” has been removed as previously suggested. I wouldn’t be too worried.

Re: Ranger PX2 Intercooler Pipe Upgrade

I noticed an increase in turbo noise on my Px1 after changing my intercooler piping. It’s not what I’d call excessive but slightly louder. I believe that if you were losing boost pressure through a leaking hose then the sensors would bring up a check engine code. Did you happen to check the conditio...

Hot side pipe install

Install of alloy pipe seemed easier if I had silicon hoses on turbo and intercooler first. This allowed me to manipulate pipe into silicon joiners at each end then locate alloy pipe central to the joiners, ensuring it didn’t rub on any power steering lines. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190816/...
