I've seen the JLP unit up close and I was not very impressed with its construction. It may make good power, but it is heavy and at the time didn't have any mounting hardware. It basically just sat in the area where your stock airbox was. It seemed to me that it would bounce around in there.
Yeah I dont want anything bouncing around that is for sure, someone said they reconfigured the kit some and now it accepts air from both openings beside the fog lights, but yeah that would turn me off if I werent able to mount it solid!
I've had my JLP unit on for 2500 of the 3000 miles now on the odometer. It does NOT move around and mine is well constructed as are all the JLP units I have seen. I have run 11.4's with it and no headers, JLP has run 11.2's with it and no headers.
Totaled and Dust those are some impressive times, what are your guys mods exactly, looks like I will be going with the JLP, is it true that it is ducted from both holes beside the fog lights, and also what kind of filter does it come with?? Any other help would be appreaciated! Thanks Trey
My mods on the 11.4 runs were: BFG drag radials, JLP airbox and chip, bassani exhaust with high flow cats, tr6 plugs, steeda shifter and a 6# lower. The JLP unit has a hose that runs from beside the right fog light to the air box and when at the track you remove the right headlight which gives it even more air
If you want some pictures let me know as I am not very good at explaining things.
Totaled man your car runs very well for the few mods, please send me some pics, [email protected], so pulley wise all U have is a 6lb lower??? Evidentally the JLP works your mph is impressive as well!! Both of your guys cars is evident that your mods work and the JLP is working as well!!!! Shoot me some pics of the JLP and any others U have, later all! Trey
Thanks for the info JT, I am wondering if the JLp shield is as good as the Amazon and would cover the whole filter, for me its hard to overlook the JLP several people have picked up 2-3mph in the 1/4 with it, by the way saw your car on the dyno vid, what did it end up making at the wheels! Later Trey
Has anybody seen JLPs kit that uses BOTH openings by the fog lights? I'm really curious how they are planning to transfer the driver side air to the passenger side inner fender opening. I've tried 2 different types of flexible hose on my homemade setup and have had both of them tear from ground contact because of their extremely low mounting position. Next attempt will be using a piece of 3" exhaust tubing(SS if I can find it) flattened into an oval & SECURELY mounted below & just behind the intercooler radiator.
