Default JWT Pop Chargers - Pictures - Review - Dyno

Hello everyone,

I just received a set of JWT Pop Chargers, props to Mike @ DDM for a great price and even better customer service!

I will update this as stuff happens. I am currently waiting for the drill to charge, so here are some pictures of the intakes while you all patiently wait











I will not apologize for my comforters, deal with it. Jerks.

Space reserved for Review.

Packaging:

Very well packaged. It looks professional and well protected. Nice job here.

Assembly:

Pretty straight forward if you have installed intakes before. For those of you who haven't, I hope you have good spatial cognitive skills since things may not make sense right away. You may have to stare at the supplied instructions for 10 minutes before things start to click. The instructions themselves are good enough to get the job done without being convoluted or confusing. Color pictures definitely help, but there is a bit of an optical illusion effect where you don't know which way the bends of the heat shield are going and it throws you off. Overall though, it shouldn't be too bad for anyone..

Quality:

Quality is pretty good. They look like they are well made and that is reflected in the beautiful welds. As you can see from the pic, they have a nice shiny finish and the heatshields are made up of two parts. The main body of the heatshields is metallic, but it has flexible flaps that will help it seal away from the heat once the hood is closed. The filters are a good size too and they seem like they have a lot of surface area to pull air through. MAF sensor housings also look pretty good and solidly welded on. Supplied hardware was all here, nothing missing. Also all the nuts and bolts are nicely packaged into their own partition depending on their application. Very nice touch which will help make assembly and installation easier.


Install:

Honestly this wasn't all that bad. The longest part was waiting for my drill to charge. Took about 30 minutes...kinda. If everything had worked out the first time around, I would've been done in around 30 mins, but I had a problem installing the driver side heatshield. It was mostly my fault, but I would advice folks to be careful when tightening the bolts that attach the shield to the car. The shields are made of soft metal and you will start deforming it if you start tightening too much. It is better to tighten and then secure with the bolt that goes in the hole you have to drill. Other than that, straight forward stuff. Use sockets if you got em, they will make your life a lot easier...

On the Street:

Well, you can definitely tell something has changed when you push it past 4k RPM. They make a nice deep throaty sound that I'm sure you can hear well from outside the car. Butt Dyno results are inconclusive and will have to wait until tomorrow when I can get into the taller gears and actually see points of reference. They sound great under aggressive rev-matching too. It seems to add a little more of a savage kind of a feel to the car. The sound just adds to the mechanical effect, you can hear the car breathe when you stomp on the gas. For those of you who may have felt a little disconnected from the experience ( I dont know how you could), this will make you more aware of the effects that your inputs are having. Makes it feel a little more organic.

I will have more for you guys tomorrow and hopefully some video if I have some free time.

They look lovely (and I won't mention the duvet) - the front shiny bits are prone to corrosion, so look after them.

Any reason why you didn't wait for the Stillen G3's?

Not criticizing your decision, just wanted to know.
