with what i have on my mod list, is a bellmouth housing worth it? any benefit, sound difference, or is it not really needed?
i was looking at the CNT bellmouth to match my current setup.

You'll see a little more torque but I don't think you'll see much more peak power. Its up to you if the install is worth it, are you doing it yourself or having a shop do it?

And if you're going to buy it, I'd get it from Depo, its the exact same pipe for cheaper look for it in the vendors section.

Its not really worth it..labor and power if though ur going to install it yourself. . Ill wait until bigger turbo and install it all at once.

No and no. Cheap Catalog parts from China :waiting:
CNT and Depo are from the same Chinese manuf as well, compare pics. Remove all doubt, get the AMS.

The AMS is only a little more. There's a comparison of the AMS vs Depo, and AMS is a more solid design overall. On something so labor intensive don't skimp. The AMS isn't crazy expensive or anything (it's actually a very reasonably priced downpipe).

But like others said, on stock turbo, gains won't be significant enough to warrant the labor. If you do it yourself that's one thing, but man, it's a PITA. If you ever plan to do the turbo, hold off and do it with that, your life will be a lot easier. And if you have a shop do it, saves a crap ton on labor.

Didn't know about CNT, thanks bud.


+1 go AMS if you want a quality bell mouth DP not sure the pricing on the tomei but it is also very nice
Yeep the tomei DP is real nice too, can't go wrong that one either :D

Yeah, any of the downpipes you're talking about getting will replace the turbo outlet and downpipe section with 1 piece. Your 1 piece downpipe/testpipe will need to be removed for the 1 piece turbo outlet/downpipe and then a seperate testpipe.

you could do downpipe (AMS) and exhaust manifold (very impressed with my FiD) at the same time and it saves a little bit on labor. on E85 (not 93oct) you'll see decent gains, but even then it's kind of expensive overall for what you get

of course, if you plan on a turbo swap, it's much better value at that point
