ya ill get some before pics tonight. got another VVT sitting here. ill get some more of the LB7 today, im going to finish up one of those. there is alot of material i take out of both. its a huge huge difference.

as for what it helps, it helps spoolup and drive pressure aswell and flowing more air really but thats where the drive pressure drop is from. im not going to lie it takes alot of time to port them out but it well worth it.

well the openings are out from 1.75 to 2 inches like the IHI's. on the inside its larger then 2 inches all the way into the bottom of the turbine housing.

i work out of the epic solutions/airsafe hitch shop (i work for epic and tim just lets me use the shop). as for the mouthpiece machining. the LB7;s ya i do all of those. LLY your better off just getting a LBZ mouthpiece.

really for 100 bucks id upgrade to the LBZ one in the future. its way bigger then even a modded LLY one.
