Default Who is using Legacy GT intake manifold on their STi?

Saw it posted on a car with a FMIC.

Looks like a good idea to keep temps down since it is plastic. And you can rotate the intake manifold without removing AC compressor.

My question is DOES it work.

Do you think it can be made to work with a Spearco TMIC runnign a custome samco hose to it???

Would like some info from people who have done it...

Tried to search no luck for you flamers

I am using LGT manifold but reversed. Seriously if you want LGT manifold just for reduce the heat(never measure, so dont know if it's really cooler or not).. don't do it ..waste of time and money. The only reason that i am running reverse LGT manifold is cuz the throttle is on the side which allow you to keep your A/C , but yes you'll have to custom IC pipes and for sure you dont want to do that with TMIC, because with TMIC, the piping from TMIC to manifold is actully going be longer than the stock position, which means no point for reverse manifold.

Personally, the whole idea of LGT reverse manifold is for show ..it might help a lil, but i have nothing to compare with..however, with FMIC, compare with STI manifold VS LGT manifold., the piping from IC to manifold is almost the same...which "i think" there's no point change it to LGT.

Moreover, with STI manifold, it does make the piping shorter but then you'll have to lose your AC..

I don't believe you HAVE to lose your AC. But you do have to relocate it.

probably, but only if you can find a spot for it and make it work , at least b4 i do my reverse manifold , i asked many shops (no luck) and pmed some ppl that are running STI reverse manifold..none of them are running AC with reversed STI manifold just cuz it won't fit.

Mine (not STi though ):




If you decide to go the LGT manifold route you will also need the LGT TGV housings in order for it to bolt up along with an LGT throttle body as well. The wiring for the Drive By Wire will also need to be extended to reach the new location of the throttle body. And obviously it can only be used with a rotated mount turbo kit.
