Well looks like they got suspended earlier today again...

Wonder if they finally got in trouble for not giving a valid phone number. Phone number is required by ebay... lol?

well, it will give more tuning headroom if you're maxing out the MAF. The only stock location turbos that have a decent shot at doing that are the greens and higher. The maf housing doesn't produce a significant bottleneck in flow, it's the increased accuracy when tuning in the upper limits of maf v.

For the 90 degree elbow for the BOV, how long does the piece need to be? I found a blue silicone one on ebay that looks like it would work but I'm not sure if it would be long enough. Anyone have a measurement they could share? Thanks.

Here's the link if anyone else wants to check it out.

That would be close but I think it's on the short side.. The hose I used it about 4" to 5" on each side of the bend.

That's 30 bucks also.. no need to spend that kind of dough on that when you can just get a radiator hose with a bend in it and cut it yourself to the proper length rather than guessing if it would fit

I'm aware, but the radiator hose looks pretty ghetto. You're dropping $400 on the FMIC. I think it's worth another $30 not to have to look at that.

The one listed there says it's 6" for each leg so that sounds like it would work. I'll guinea pig it and let everyone know.

Looks like they got suspended from ebay for having a similar product to someone. Not sure if they will be back from this. I got my FMIC already shipped to me so Im happy.

I just had my new FMIC tuned to my car with my new td06 20g turbo. Intercooler worked as good as any, and car produced 345 whp with 96 oct mix gas! Whoot for a sweet deal and a cost effective product!

FWIW 1.25" was a little too big. It clamps down, but not perfectly. Perrin makes a BOV elbow for their FMIC, might be worth exploring. I also added the ThermoTek intake blanket to the cold pipe, fits the exact length of the pipe if you cut it to fit around the BOV area.

Where did you buy that wrap? Im looking for a cheap and simple way to keep the cool side from pulling too much heat....A google search didnt pull up anything on that blanket.

I used the thermotec kit on the cold side pipe. Used about 20ft. It makes a huge difference. After driving, I can touch the BOV port (where it isn't wrapped) and it is much much colder than it was before. Barely warm. The hotside pipe is almost too hot to touch even just putting around under vacuum. I would recommend this. I'd also wrap it before I changed the piping to counterclockwise.

Freon,

got any pics of the cold side with that thermotec wrap? Some pages ago i put mine up with my cold side wrapped. I just used DEI exhaust wrap....it looks ok and does an extremely good job at keeping the cool in. Just like you said, you can touch the little spot where the bov sticks out and it's alot cooler now wrapped, vs. unwrapped. I would like to see the thermotec setup.

So now I'm thinking of going blow-thru with my setup. Since I've reversed the flow, that means I have to move the maf to the other side of the bay. I suppose I could go back to the non-reversed setup to do it too.

I want to put it after the IC, which means on the driver's side of the engine bay since I reversed the flow.

Yea but putting it on the hot side of the IC could expose it to really high temperatures. If you are going to use the IAT sensor for speed density that is a really poor place for it. It needs to be on the cold side.
