Sorry but there's only a very small handful of twin turbo swaps here in the states. Either we have to make our cars right hand drive or use a different brake cylinder.

You might have better luck with the Australian or British boards where they got those cars as RHD from the factory.

http://www.rslibertyclub.org/forums/ is the Aussie one even if it's technically for BC/BF Legacies.

I don't know where to look for UK guys. But maybe Australia will be best since there's not much time difference there.

I can tell you that the GC FMIC won't be a direct fit just because of the twin turbos. You are going to need more plumbing and figure out where to tap it into the turbos. It will be quite the challenge. Maybe easier in fact to convert to single turbo.

i dont understand hte need to "tap into turbos"
Its simply replacing the stock TMIC, which the piping routes into to begin with. i mena, i may be severely underthinking this, but form the pictures ive seen, the locations are the same, but just the passenger turbo section of piping might need some modification to fit around/over turbo
not sure though
thanks for the links guys ill check it
