Perrin I/C hoses - what a pain to install
I just completed the installation of the Perrin TMIC hose kit and what a pain it was.
I did not install the bypass hose b/c the lower clamp is almost impossible to access and b/c I have the 2006 w/drive by wire, the servo is in the way - and I was not willing to risk damaging it and voila, no car, etc.
The y-pipe had to be cut on each end that mounts to the neck. I almost ran out of tubing on the short side. The clamp on the longer side is not properly seated over the tube b/c there is no space between the end of the tube and the neck. The instructions say to remove one neck (probably this one). I had to cut and cut b/c the turbo end was too far out. This was a try, try, try and try again.
The coupler was also short between the I/C and the intake manifold, but so was the factory coupler.
I also had to push and hold the I/C in place to start the RH bolt and then the LH bolt.
At least now with it installed the power band is much smoother and more responsive from the low to high end, so I'm happy with the results - just not the install.
Hopefully I won't have to remove the I/C for any reason any time soon.
*edit* should I have had these kinds of problems installing the hoses? Also, there was a fair amount of oil and what looked like gas and such inside the y-pipe tube and inside the breather tubes bolted to the I/C. I see a set of oil catch cans being installed on the Subie come this spring.
Thanks for letting me bitch.
