APR Carbon Fiber “Hose”

During the Turbo Inlet Pipe (Elbow) testing the aftermarket TIPs were tested when attached to stock intake parts, except for the MST elbow that would only fit solidly with the supplied MST inlet hose.

The APR inlet elbow does have an APR Carbon Fiber inlet hose that it can be paired with instead of the stock accordion hose.

For this ‘side’ investigation the APR inlet elbow is tested for maximum airflow when using the stock accordion hose, and then the APR Carbon Fiber hose.  The complete stock setup data is also presented for comparison.

The results of this test are shown on the chart below:

Use of the APR Carbon Fiber Hose does improve airflow slightly over the case with the stock accordion hose.

  1. Curious, will you retest any of the others with this hose instead of the stock? wondering how much of a difference it makes on the ones that already showed higher flow than the APR TIP. Thanks

    1. I can try a couple to see if the increase in airflow is consistent for different brands. I probably won’t retest every one, unless the results are inconsistent.
