Balanced Ducting



APS Balanced Ducting

The shortest possible routing, equal length, mandrel bent, precision TIG welded, polished 304 stainless steel ducting connects the compressor discharges to the twin intercooler inlets. This contributes to the brilliant boost response of the APS Intercooled Twin Turbo systems.

Moreover, a pair of advanced cast alloy ducts hug the tight confines of the Z06's wheel wells and transfer a huge volume of air from the high flow air filters to the turbocharger compressor intakes. This is by far the most efficient and stylish solution to the issue of sourcing a huge amount of cold air to the turbochargers.

Ducting length is critical on the Z06 TT in order to achieve balanced induction and excellent driveability. By designing the turbocharger to intercooler ducting specifically to be of equal length, each turbocharger experiences exactly the same effective air path to the intercoolers which results in totally balanced turbocharger performance. Other systems that are designed with unequal length, experience boost pressure and air movement issues where under certain conditions, one turbocharger pushes air back through the intercooler or ducting and into the other turbocharger ducting. As air movement is momentum based, this is simply wasted energy that should be better put towards producing horsepower, not restriction.

The advanced APS dual entry intercooler not only solves this problem but allows APS to utilize true equal length ducting - the most efficient routing for the twin turbo C6 Z06!

Custom molded tough-wall silicon hoses ensure bullet proof installation and optimum air flow. In addition, ancillary connections such as those to the blow off valve and blow off valve return lines are positioned for optimum air flow so that the already crisp turbocharger response is accentuated during gear changes.

A precision cast alloy duct takes the chilled charge air flow from the APS intercoolers and creates a combined smooth-front air flow stream to take full advantage of the stock throttle body and deliver a huge amount of air to the Z06 engine. Another benefit of this highly specialized APS throttle body duct is rock steady response from the stock air mass meter for the best possible fuel economy, the optimum signal to the engine management system and excellent throttle response.
