Here’s a better picture that the powdercoater took! The vstack is welded on!




This is the first vstack kit I bought and put on my other set of intakes. Same kit just welded on the new intakes

Could you post the dimensions of the filters you're using? I have 3 inch intakes coming and I also want to run vstacks. Thanks

Hey buddy they are 3 1/2 inch bellmouths.
Check out rabbit holes vstack Kit. I ran it with my admins for a while. Great results.

I am switching intakes due to issues related to a tune from him. I’m removing the admin intakes because I don’t support that brand any more. I do want to keep it professional, but I gave up on him tuning my car after 14 months of going back and forth over email with no acceptable tune.
Couldn’t get 93/e85 to run/idle/drivel/shift right. That’s all.

Unfortunate to hear this, but it is what it is. None of our busness. Too bad he removed your video from his channel petty and kinda funny at the same time.

LOL 😂 it is what it is. Haha yep that video got taken down quick. I kinda found it funny so no stress there. I don’t blame him for taking it down. We didn’t end on good terms. Extremely unimpressed with the results we got after 14 months of going back and forth tuning.

No reason to dwell on it, I got GOT. Moved on and found the results I was looking for. You live and you learn. I won’t fall for all the hype again.

Again this isn’t the place to bash him (not my style either). So looks like we’re done here lol

I guess that's possible. I can ask the owner and he'll be honest and tell me. Never driven a 3.0t, but I've heard the electric steering, sound, and overall driving experience is less than that of our G37s. Even with the huge amount of power they make with bolt ons, the belt issue and reasons above make me not want to trade away my G for one. But, no disrespect to each their own.

How did the car run with the eps tb in terms of driveability? I have a very similar set up, FI true dual, isr tp, admin intakes with jwt filters and skunk 2 vstacks (my own set up) , ported upper and lower from z1. I just installed a stillen lightweight crank pulley(loving it so far) and was gonna buy stillen headers until I found this thread and since I'm not planning to switch up motor mounts bc I daily this car, I don't think I will be getting them. I had to recently switch back to oem tb bc the eps tb literally ran ok for a month, I'm not sure it's the tb fault, I think my car just hates them and they don't get along. Did you ever have any issues, rev hang, surge idle at start up, p2135 etc.? If yes why do you think getting a bigger tb will fix those issues?

Whats with all the pictures? Unrelated lol
I no longer have admin intakes, test pipes or fast intentions exhaust, z1 upper or lower, or the pulley. Hahaha so maybe a little different but, Yes I had a lot of those issues but not with new tune....

Lol umm ok not sure how the pics (all 3 of them) are unrelated when it's a thread about modding a g37x so I'm just sharing my own and you had a similar setup so that's why I was asking how it all worked, if it did work. So you're saying all you did was switch up the tune/tuner and it's working normally now?
