I can't come any closer to the throttle body because i'm about an 1/8'' away from the throttle linkage.

I am really thinking about FMIC, but I just got my car back together after this 05' LGT tranny swap and the wife would kill me if I was tearing my car back apart after only 2 days I have some house projects to get caught up on, and going FMIC is too big a project right now.

What FMIC are you using?
im using some ebay china fmic for a gc8, it fits ****ty so alot of cutting needs to be done and since im using a blow-through setup + a atomspheric BOV its alittle hacked up and my bumper looks kinda ghetto but from a distance you cant tell.


im running 7 lbs and at night the cold side piping is cold after a thorough beating which is impressive since the piping quality isnt that great. but during the day both hot/cold side are HOT however the intercooler only gets hot on one side regardless of temps.a tmic is basicially a heat soak!!
