The elbow in question is the 90 degree elbow coming off the compressor to the hot-side of the piping. It's too big on the turbo-side, but some have managed to clamp it down with standard hose clamps.

the problem with the high pressure line is that it site too high. All we did was bend the lines down a little bit and the pipe fit. NO there are not any fuel problems or anything. I'm sure if you wanted to you could but some extra fuel line and make it fit better.

You should post some info/pictures on this thread

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1057944


"The Turbo XS FMIC, which comes with black and white photocopied instructions (using pics of the bugeye model), needs more room for the piping than the 06 has. The fuel lines, which the instructions say to move arenít flimsy like in the older models, they are solid fuel lines that canít be moved. There was no way to fit this piece in"

Its going to be a tight fit but I'm pretty sure I can fit a CAI with in the fender well. I'm going to make my own and it should cost less than $20 (plus $25 filter).

BTW- This FMIC is awesome! Everything fits perfect and I'm very pleased the way it turned out.

Does anyone have any issues with the coolant reserve tank. I looked at my stock unit and there is no air bleed hose which most cars do have. Now my cap on the provided reservoir seems to be leaking a bit because of possibly too much heat/pressure???


Has anyone tapped a hole and line into the reservoir or is everyone running just what they provided.


Any help would be appreciated.

Btw guys.

I've had the fmic installed for a couple of weeks now. Car turned 360whp at 22psi and 380wtq with my 20g on my 05 sti. Car runs fantastic.

However, the upper pipes do heat soak. There is no avoiding this with this kit. If I experience it I know others must as well.
Hopefully some wrap will cure the problem or at least help. If not, I'll be replacing the upper pipes in the engine bay with aluminum units.

Just punch a small hole in your cap. Other people have done this and it resolved this issue.

I ordered two of these kits. The box came and all that was in it was two cores, nothing else. Very dissapointing. I just emailed them to find out whats up. I hope they are not gonna try and scam me. I'll post the results...

you should have gotten two large boxes, each one containing 2 boxes, one is the core and one is the tubes and other parts. sounds like an easy mix-up to make.

Yea none of them come with the adaptor.

BTW anyone have any hood clearance issues? I found out I couldn't shut my hood this evening The hot pipe is sitting too high but is already as far down as it will go. Is the removal of the splitter required? I just thought of that after I got in for the evening. Here is a pic:



Also a note about removing the TMIC bracket on the drivers side: the two bolts that come off the intake manifold might BOTH go back on otherwise you might induce a vacuum leak. There are pin sized holes in the bottom that go all the way through on some intakes. You can see in the pic that I put both back in even though only one is used for the bracket.



I also noted a few things. Its not a perfect fit to keep the foglights in the bugeye but its not that far off. I also had no problem just lowering the fuel filter and I didn't have to use the hose that I bought. I got 1.25" ID hose for the BOV adaptor but I think someting like 1.175 would be more appropriate. Nothing else stands out in my head as being important.

cdvma I wasn't able to use that L bracket and close my hood on my 2002. Once I removed the L bracket and lowered the fuel filter i was able to lower the pipe enough to clear the hood.

After I took those pictures I removed the bracket. Still no luck but I only tried for about 30 seconds. It seems to have plenty of room around the fuel filter but not next to the oil cap/battery/ac line. I'll take a peek today or tomorrow and report back.

Although I havent checked myself, I find it very hard to believe that there is a hole that passes through the intake manifold there... and the entire pressurized system of the car is reliant on a couple bolts being threaded in tight. That wouldnt make a seal regardless.

As for the L bracket, I cut the long end of mine a good amount shorter and redrilled a hole for it, so instead of a long side and a short side they are both just about the same size now. It helps to hold my IC piping down a bit over there and helped the piping clear my hood. Without the bracket the piping was definitely rubbing my hood and it took more effort to close my hood as well.

Check it out then

Some of the holes on the intake manifold do have pinholes in them.

I finished my install last night. Everything went together like a dream. This thread contains all the info I needed except ONE thing. The crank case vent line comes with a T, which is fine. However I cannot figure out how you're supposed to connect their new line to the driver's side crank case vent without some kind of male-to-male connector.

You replace the drivers side with the new hose that came with your kit. It is long enough to reach the T
