Hey guys me and a coworker are debating on an inlet question. I have gt2871 elim im about to put on but i need a TIP. The inlet adapter on the turbo is 2.5 inch but the actual compressor opening on the turbine is only 2 IN. i found a used intake on the cheap that is 3 in at maf which i need and 2 in at the turbo side. i was thinking of getting a 2in inlet adapter but my coworker states that it will hurt perfomance.. i dont understand how this can be as i would think the turbo side can only flow as much as the 2 in opening would allow.

Can anyone elaborate?? is he right? will it really hurt perfomance noticably.

The Elim comes standard with a 2" adapter inlet but also offer a 2.5" adapter inlet. If you are going to use a pipe with a 2" inlet you might as switch back to the standard 2" adapter that ATP supplies with every order. If you are going to stick with the 2.5" adapter inlet get a Turbo inlet pipe or a turbo inlet hose that is 3" to 2.5".
