Dude, Post #1!

Quote:
Q:What else do I need to purchase?
A:
1) If you plan to use the stock BPV you need a WBR Bov Adapter (aqka:TurboXS BOV Adapter flange)

....

4) A 1 1/4inch 90deg elbow hose to attach your stock BPV to the FMIC piping.

It was like two posts above your first post asking what you need. And it's also on page one.

so how much extra lag is experienced with this fmic than the tmic and is it little enough to offset the effects of heat soak the tmic suffers from?

I got mine for 300 shipped. Email them first. Did you use the website on page1 of this thread?

Anyone using the TurboXS BOV's? Mine is sticking pretty close to the hotside pipe...before I adjusted, engine movement from shifting actually sheered off the vac line to the BOV. It's not as close now, but it's still rubbing I think...

i installed this on my 04 sti from a bigger tmic

and really the lag isnt really noticeable from the 2 intercoolers
just my 2 cents tho
and if u do think there is a lot of lag start doing some PnP work
u can get the tb, intake mani, header, tgvs done for about 380 off this forum

I was hit with an in-state tax fee on mine so yes they are located in NC. I got mine in 2 days. Or maybe it was overnight. Either way it was Super fast.

If I buy the JDM bumper support beam, will that solve the bumper issue? Also, will I lag or have any issues running on my stock WRX turbo, like lag or damage? I believe it's the TD304 or some ish, whatever the 06 wrx comes w/ stock?
