Thanks everyone! I'm boosted once again. I made a short video after a quick test run to make sure everything was in working condition. Ill upload more videos tomorrow once I get a helping hand to record some.

We need videos!

I probably won't appreciate them as much since one of the speakers on my laptop stopped working and the other is starting to go too.

Youtube is still editing my damn videos. I uploaded two of them. One is a walk around, the other is a drive by to hear the whine. My fog light was flashing in one video because when I removed the bumper to install the custom CAI, the connector got loose.. Enjoy the videos! Hopefully they work.

Went to Acura of Ramsey, great staff over there btw. Had a free multi-point inspection done, tech found my lower right ball joint bad. Getting it replaced tomorrow. They were impressed with the blower

As a technician of 10 years, you don't spend much time fixing broken things on your car. A shoe repair man has probably the worse shoes as they say... Luckily this was caught and saved me the painful expensive of it breaking off while driving.

Looking good. Can't wait till i hear my whine. I've got resonated ATLP exhaust w/PCD's and its pretty loud, i sure hope i clearly hear the whine over it.

BTW, at what RPM do you start hearing the whine and at what RPM does the whine just start going crazy? Do you need to totally floor the pedal to hear it?

Thanks buddy!! Here's how it works with a new blower. At idle it's pretty much quiet except for the chatter noise the blower makes but it's hard to notice. When driving and slowly bringing up the RPM's you will not hear it whine, same goes for cruising. Give it a 1/4 pedal of gas and you will hear a slight whine, the higher the RPM's when more gas is applied the louder the blower gets. A custom CAI is the best to hear it whine very loud and help the charge temps a bit.

Out of curiosity since you were charged, then not, then yes...do you see an increase in your MPG?

Very good question!

Before S/C I did a TB coolant line bypass with a CAI, thermo gaskets and TB Spacer. The intake manifold stay's much cooler however, the cooler air increases performance but suffers in MPG. Here is the run down..

1. Before doing TB coolant line bypass with a CAI, thermo gaskets and TB Spacer.. Highway w/ cruise control on at 60-65 mph Fuel economy ranged from 34-37 MPG.

2. After doing TB coolant line bypass with a CAI, thermo gaskets and TB Spacer.. Highway w/ cruise control on at 60-65 mph Fuel economy ranged from 30-33 MPG. (Check out link below of my road trip 5 hour drive)

https://acurazine.com/forums/3g-tl-photograph-gallery-96/nice-road-trip-my-hybrid-i-mean-tl-791453/


3.After S/C Install, coolant lines still bypassed and custom CAI installed.. Highway w/Cruise control on at 60-65 mph Fuel economy ranged from 34-38 MPG.

In conclusion: The blower generates warmer air, which decreases performance but increased fuel economy. The only time your burning more gas is when in boost and getting on it. I usually drive the car pretty normal, and driving normal highway ect, ect, the blower barrel and intake manifold is usually pretty cool to slightly warm, I have yet to experience the "Tremendous heat" a blower produces.

I have taken a quick picture yesterday though it was a short 10-15 min drive on the highway it's a pretty good idea what my range would be if I stayed on the highway longer.





and two quick shots of my "Sleeper" LMAO

WOW, your MPG reduced after CAI and coolant bypass....I had the exact opposite happen to me...with CAI and Bypass and TBS, my mpg went up....after the exhaust the mpg took a serious hit....

Jeremy, if you are really interested in the SC, you can actually disconnect the SC when going on long trips (I hear you dont like driving/long trips)....when you disconnect, the SC wont generate heat and it doesnt take too much to disconnect it (per Alex)....

for just normal driving, if you can keep the foot off the gas and not hitting the SC whine, you should be fine....the minute you hit the SC and go into the BOOST, your MPG will take a severe hit (I bet you already knew that LOL)

Thanks buddy!! Depending on how you drive, I've been pretty good on this my gas hasn't really suffered. To disconnect the blower from boost you can zip tie the vacuum actuator, or remove the entire blower. When removing the blower you will need to put back stock plugs, disconnect acm, relocate TB back to manifold w/sensor, reinstall cam plate, reinstall the p/s hose outlet joint, reinstall the belt, a bracket on the front head which holds the O2 sensor wiring, and your intake setup. All that would be left is the battery with cables, coolant hose and tank and the whole battery plate setup. It's an additional 1 hour worth of work. (At that point, you be back to stock)

I'm pretty much done with the TL. The lady just picked up a Kia Optima fully loaded, she wants a drop with vossen's. I was sooo shocked to find out that all modifications for that car are about 60% less than what it would be for us with Acura's.

Good info...I was thinking for me too...I saw an increase...overall with the exhaust and intake mods. Strange!

Yeah, it def is strange. I need to manually calculate the fuel average. I should realistically be getting 18-21 local and 28-32 highway. I never fully trusted the MID screen fuel average.

the trip computer has been pretty accurate for me....its calculates the OVERALL average....so if you reset it and drive 600 miles, it will calculate the average for the past 600 miles and not the recent tank of gas....

I have my fuel logs for almost 100K miles and I reset the MID everytime I do an oil change and it comes up pretty accurate for the 5000 miles (my OCI)...

but yeah, shifting around 3200 rpm recently does make me feel as if there is a hole in the damn gas tank...

Update: The lady bought a new car last month. 2011 EX Kia optima fully loaded (Except navi). I love that car! It's amazing for what it features. Pano roof, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats even a heated steering wheel! Acura is slacking.. Best part of all she bought it for 21K with 4,380 miles.

She's been doing a few mods to it, which I will say I told her just tint it and maybe put HID's in, she said the cost of things are 1/4 of Acura modification prices.. Which I didn't believe, but it was true! Here it is:

Those Kia's are nice cars. My brother has the SX turbo and its a pretty sick car. He isn't into modding cars, all he has done are those Kia badges all around.
