The first 18-24" is the most critical after that the exhaust flow changes and can be smaller unless it's a race only then keep it big and dump it quick.


Thanks for the info. We bought a data logger a year ago and decided to get the proper pressure switches and EGT temps to make a quick learning curve. I'm sure we will make quick changes if needed.
