Today I installed my new 100mm stacks with the Pipercross filter set up. I was very pleased with the fitment. Isn’t it beautiful.

Even with the filter on there is a sufficient amount of room for all the components around it. I think I could even fit the windshield washer bottle.

I also got around to installing the SS brake lines today. I will be racing soon! All of the intake parts here are available from Battle Garage Racing Service.

Filtering the 20v

To filter the 20v I decided to use the Pipercross filter and SQ adapter plate from Battle Garage.

The use of this style of Pipercross allows space for 100mm velocity stacks!

I also picked up some stainless steel brake lines and a little hood support clamp. It's all in the details. The stacks will be here in a few weeks and I will upload a new video.


The 20v Running Clip

Even though I have not been updating the blog much, the 20v is running pretty good. There is the low rev-limit issue (about 6800), but other than that it seems to be a flawless swap. I have ordered 100mm stacks and a filter set up from Battle Garage, one of the most punctual and quality up and coming distributors around.

When I get the Corolla on the road again I will head over to my buddy Evan's shop at item-b here in Portland to have him shoot some HD video of the motor.
