I ordered mine a week ago it came in a few days ago. I searched XS power on google, went to the website and ordered. It got to my door 2 days later with ground shipping. They should have them in stock if I ordered a week ago...?!

From what I can see, those that use the SPT with this FMIC kit add a longer coupler at the bottom where it connects to the turbo inlet pipe or use an aftermarket silicone turbo inlet. This way it achieves the same result of moving the filter higher.

So Rene, did you use a coupler where wrxsti.l is talking about before you put your aps inlet on? I see in this pic it doasent look like it but the pick that wrxsti.l has of yours does look like it. This is if I'm talking about the right place I'm talking about where the spt coupler is (replacing that with a longer/bigger coupler) I'm Kinda confused I think

Rene is using the APS standard silicone connector that comes with the hard inlet.

Also, note that if you only use 1 of the holes on the SPT intake tube to the bracket to allow it to sit higher, with the factory inlet tube and the standard SPT parts, it will clear the intercooler piping. You may have to bend the mounting bracket a little to prevent it from hitting the hood though.

Mine didn't fit in the location for some damn reason, I had it attached to the pipe for a while, then I modded my coolant tank.

Hopefully gonna finish this tomorrow after work. Need the 1 1/4" pipe for the BPV and figure out why my hood hit the pipes on the drivers side. Looks like some tweaking is in order.

The pipes may be hitting because your fuel lines are in the way, bend em down.

It does not. It comes flanged for the Turbo XS type H style BOV. You can either use a stock type BOV and a 90degree elbow, or have a new flange welded on.
