Any thoughts on this, or is it too early in the Mod history of the XT to go there.
I am thinking about more bottom end grunt (for city driving).
Gas mileage might improve if a taller gear could be used,sooner...
But then again I think, too much spool to soon would make winter driving a real nightmare!
Maybe map switching would be the answer, for winter driving.... hmmm :idea:

I have nothing to back this up, but last couple things I read about twin scroll is that it's not living up to it's hype.

Bland...

you should be able to get as much power and almost the same spool from a big 16G on the 2.5 motor as you would with the vf37 twin scroll setup.

I talked to a guy with an 02 LGT wagon with a V7 swap w/twin scroll and he's dissapointed in the power and wants more.
