Alright peeps.........what is the consensus on removing these valves on us boosted QR25s? I have talked to 2J and Joe himself and heard his thoughts on losing torque down low and to do the Loctite fix. Also heard about that baller B16 plenum kit, but I am not doing that.
My wrench/friend of mine really thinks taking them out completely is the way to go.
I am not only built+boosted, but I am on a 2.7L stroker setup. I don't want all of my daily driving city torque to go away, but after being tuned I'd imagine I will be fine without the butterfly valves in. I'm on a 5831 Precision; 58 trim almost 600whp rated.
I am also looking at a 400-500whp build/setup. I have my butterflies welded in place and will be using a Hobbs switch to open them at a specific boost level (to be determined on a dyno). There are a number of other switches you can use to control them as well, but the Hobbs is pressure activated.
