I couldn't get the Typhoon to fit on my STi.
I ended up selling it and using the supplied one with the kit.
I just started to max it out with the wheather getting around 30 degrees here in NY
This is with a td06-20g @ 22psi.
I turned it down to 21psi and so far I haven't thrown the high maf sensor CEL again.

Yeah, the typhoon is definitely a tight fit. It actually kind of wedges itself between the tube and the hood.

Yes, I removed the heatshield. I have some pics about two pages back.

Just make sure you have things in the right place before you slam the hood. The filter will sit between the IC tube and the headlight. You might crush the filter the first time if you dont have it all lined up.

Has someone actually gotten a kit without a coolant overflow, or are you speculating based on the photos? The photos often don't show everything included. They almost never show the intake (MAF housing) piece in photos yet everyone gets one.

he might be referring to the breather hard lines which run along the front of the intercooler.

The kit provides lengthened pieces of rubber tube and t-fittings for this.
