Thanks for the heads up! Hopefully others know, I've seen the same info floating around in this thread enough that I knew to unplug mine today before I put everything back together.
So I'm in the final steps of my swap, really just filling fluids and stuff left. All is well, and I'll probably start-er-up tonight.
Question though, does anyone have a pic of the passenger side mounting brackets for the Ver8 TMIC? I'm thinking mine weren't included. I have 2 brackets left over and they certainly don't seem to fit. The one that was on there, I couldn't even get the TMIC in place with it on(seemed like a standard WRX fitment bracket
). Anyway, if anyone has any pics of them on or off the car I'd appreciate it.
Also, what are you guys dong as far as heat shields for the turbo? Even running one? My Ver8 swap didn't include a heat shield and trying to decide if I should wrap the DP and throw on an aftermarket turbo blanket or just go as is
