How much noise does the iab valve make? Mine was soooo anoying. Ended up routing it to the charge pipe and eliminating that filter. When your iab valves fails soon, you might consider that modification. it should see equal boost pressure across it for endurance. Fyi
How much boost you got? Great ride man!
Thank all of you for your posts. I hate to admit it but I dont have a clue what a iab valve is so I dont know if its making noise or not. Please explain.
I also dont know how much boost its running because it doesnt have a boost guage. I have spoken with Chris today at Heffners Performance and while he was helpful in general, he said I needed to speak with Jason on specifics. Jason was there but didnt return my call.
As you can tell Im not nearly as knowledgeable as you guys about these things but I do love driving and showing off this beast. Still learning.
Gotta have a boost gauge!!! Isn't that part of the fun?
The valve and filter drlee50 is talking about, is that little filter in pic #2 on the passanger side of the boost pipe by the alternator. I think he may have spelled it wrong but it's the Idle Air Control valve.... IAC. Typically they make some hissing noise if you have on the little filter, but it gets quiet when you take the filter off and run a hose from that IAC valve into the boosted side of the intake (called the "charge pipe" because it is charged or pressurized). Of your charge pipe would need a port on it to attach a hose and run it to the IAC.
Here I edited a picture of mine to show how mine is hooked up:
