I would be interested in doing this mod, however i dont want to lose the AC. Sounds like i can just lower the Alt and leave the AC where it is. Am i right>

i forgot to post in this thread when our 8mm spacer first came out....but i wanted to let everyone know that by adding our triple thick intake manifold phenolic spacers you will get just enough space to get that reverse intake mani setup up and over the alternator.

Vendors will be vendors..... funny how they always try to whore in their products in threads like this. Why can't they just make their own thread in the Vendor Announcement forums?

If we need it - we will find your product... no need to sneak it in !

its not a kit, it was all custom done...

its a 90 off the compressor, the same 90 that comes with the turboXs kit that you use off stock turbo location

forgive me. i rarely ever post anything about our products anywhere but the vendor sections but one of the reasons we made these thicker spacers was to help the reverse setup guys out....specifically after i read this whole thread one day.

people have to cut the top of their hood?!? i know alot of guys are having to cut the bottom of their hood along the support but i guess i havent seen guys cutting all the way through to the top of the hood.

I think that's what he meant, cutting the hood support not cutting thru the hood

With reversing it and lowering the alternator, the angle of the throttle body is just right for piping to go over top? Correct?

Also, flipping it has no affect on air distribution to the cylinders? Correct?

Thanks, Ryan

Don't know how many of you saw the post on iwsti.com about the non intercooled STi setup vs the FMIC setup. about 150rpm difference in spool and transitional boost response. That is with 1 ft. of piping compared to 12 ft. of piping. So the 3 ft. or so of savings of piping in doing a reverse intake mani setup is really not making a difference at all. Save your $ and just go regular FMIC or do a lot of heat soak prevention and keep TMIC setup. I almost spent a lot of $ doing the reverse intake mani setup and I am glad I didin't. I am gonna go the TMIC with lots of heat soak prevention path. So far so good.

+1, my manifold switch will be free. 150 rpm boost reponse for free? big improvment imo. Kind of a lame statment my import111, the change in lag or spool up would be different depending on the turbo and piping size.

Well, I have a friend with a completely different car (non Suby) that went from no intercooler at all to a FMIC with almost as much piping as a WRX setup, and he noticed 0 difference in lag or boost response. Seems to be the same result with different setups, cars, ect.

I think having a very large turbo will show better lag and spool characteristics compared to a much smaller turbo in a reveresed setup.

Look at the evos.. they have very short piping and get full boost with a gt40r in the mid 4s on a 2.0ltr.. that has to be telling u something...
