Default Ultra Lightning / P-200SX installation

Hello guys,

for those with the above combo, what distance did you mount the P-200SX tail cone from the straight edge of the tail pipe inner tube?

at 20mm, the P-200 is very close to the front of the bypass... a bit worried it would come short on cool air around the turbine.

thanks.

i3dm,

My UL has a Mammoth mounted in it and the distance to tailpipe is 1 inch or 25.4mm. My pipe is a Tam pipe, BTW. I know it's not a P200 but it's close and nobody chimed in, so I hope this helps.

I was going to say 30mm. You can cut ducts into the by-pass to increase air throughput.

Hi Dave,
with 30mm i think the front face of the turbine will touch the inner front of the bypass.
are you sure about this number?

That's the sort of gap the turbine wants between tailcone and tailpipe, with such a big turbine it might be difficult...you need a P-220 Rxi-B :-)

Biggest gap you can get...

Dave
if using the full bypass,all the air is directed into the closed bypass
where would the other air come from , assuming using all doors

All the little gaps add up to a lot of area!
