PMAS HPX in a 2.5" tube?
Hey guys. I'm trying to keep my car looking clean as well as functional. The intercooler has a 2.5" in and outlet. You can see, I already got most of my intake tube done and realized, I see the HPX and HPXE identify the ability to be used in 2-5" tube. I see that most are 3-3.5" and don't recommend no less than 2.75" tube diameter. This sucks. Am I fine with a 500-550 crank HP limit using one of the mentioned slot style meters in a 2.5" tube? Will I peg either or run out of range? You can see my setup below. I'd really like to use this and not have transition fittings all over like the one I already have on the throttle body.
