I don't think he did anything with the setup. That's how the Perrin rotated kit is.

It's fine. I know of a few people with setups like that. Ideally, you want your MAF as close to the throttle body as possible so you get the most accurate reading EVEN with boost/vac leaks. That means you can also vent your BOV so you don't dump air that has been previously heated by the turbo back into the intake tract.

If your intake temps are high enough to affect the MAF then you need to start looking at why they are so high and fix that.

Read the post; its not the MAF I'm talking about! Its the IAC attached to the MAF that should not be on the hot side. The intake temps on the hot piping is WAYYYY higher than it is on the cold side. There is no problem with that, its just what happens. If the temps were appropriate for intake on the hot side you wouldn't need an intercooler!

Speed density relies on a very accurate temperature measurement and the hotside is not ideal. A 30*C difference can result in a density difference great enough to induce serious error.

This is precisely why I was talking about moving the MAF to the cold side. I could "un-reverse" the flow of my piping and then get one of those thermo-tec sleeves I guess, but I think I like it how it is.

Do you expect to be spoon fed? Search the thread for "intake"

Why are people so lazy these days?

Unfortunately, the only shorty intakes that work with this kit are manufactured in Burma. As you probably have guessed, they are made from recycled soda cans there. There is only one shipment each year coming on a very slow boat, which usually arrives in December. Once it clears customs, the only distributer (SuperTyteRacing) puts them on ebay, where bidding wars often bring the price to over $5000! Sometimes you can find them for sale here in the classifieds. Just do a seach for "SuperTyteRacing intake".

lots of pages here...

Will this work with a VF39, STi injectors, and the VF34 maps from Cobb? I know it says stock intercooler and VF34, but I don't see how the FMIC should adversely affect the tuning, and as for the 34/39 thing, I have read they are about the same in power, just a few slight differences...

dont be a dickhead. it has also been stated within the first 7 pages that adding the FMIC to the stage 2 wouldnt cause a problem at all, except maybe a bit of lag. so i was asking about with the new turbo/injectors.

You going to trust them or cobb? It also says stock intake... Can you use the stock intake with a FMIC? NO.

It's your car bro! I wouldn't run an OTS map with different mods than it was created for. If you had done any research at all you'd agree. The short ram and front mount change the tune quite a bit.

Do it right or don't do it at all.

it's funny you say that because I was looking at IAT scaling, and the front mount works so well, combined with an open air filter, the car is surely going "WTF" from the 150+ temps going past the MAF then ambient temps going into the TB. Retune for sure.

I was wondering if the OP can update this trick in the first post since it seems to be a bit of a frequently asked question (and as of page 8 I havent seen a really good answer):

When you are putting your IC pipes on and before you clamp them down, coat the pipe and the inside of the rubber withn aresol hairspray. This is the trick I used when I was putting together both of my turbo kits on my Mazda. The hairspray lubes it up but when it dries creates an excellant seal. When I took my turbo kit apart I had to damn near put the **** in a vice to get it off, and never once had IC piping pop off.

I painted my tubing black, so maybe the paint has been helping to provide some "stick". The only times I had hoses blow off were immediately following the install. I think it was more a result of me not lining things up than a result of clamps not being tight enough. Now that it's all lined up, I'm hitting 17-18psi and not having any problems at all.
