What type of filter and size is that in the pic above? Also did you just take the supplied maf adapter from the SSAC kit and mount it to the turbo inlet pipe? Where did you get the blue silicone elbow for the BPV? Your install looks very clean,

I would like to have the pipes coated in red winkle finish and find some black silicone couplers and reducers.

So would you suggest not using itand going with the Cobb? I don't like the fact of running rich.

lol ill post it when its installed tomorrow, i dont believe the cobb intake runs rich, its just that the kits intake has too much air turbulence and the maf sensor cant register correctly. the cobbs intake has a velocity stack that corrects it. if it does in fact runs a little rich its far more safe to run rich than lean. it should mount exactly the same imo

Finished installing the kit.. Having problems with the MAF(Car will die when hitting boost).. I think a custom Gasket is needed because the fitting is alittle off when mounting the MAF on the provided piece. Anyone having similiar issues? I did a search on this thread and found some questions/info about maxing out the MAF (due to Tube sizing), but other than that nothing else.. (and the tube provided doesnt max out the MAF from the info I read) The Car is 04 STI (only mod is exhaust, SSAUTO FMIC, and Home made Intake)

make sure you have no leaks at your intercooler connections....you NEED to pressure test it.

Im about to order this kit but recently I was involved in a front end crash.
If I buy this Fmic kit does it ruin the structural integrity of my car. I was wondering this because I have heard you have to cut the front bumper beam( which protects your engine from a front end crash).

PLEASE give me as much information as you can as to this subject.

I am worried if I run a FMIC and get in another crash my engine will be toast along with my entire front end.... and possibly my life.
( how risky are they to run )

It does nothing for the structural integrity of the car... so you're not risking your life. It potentially could save your motor The bumper beam is designed to absorb all damamge in a 5mph collision. The JDM bumper beam is pretty much there to hold the bumper skin on.

If you look at the piping, there is already a 90 degree bend in it with it setup stock. This just added a second 90 after it, but in reality there are no extra bends as it is all done with the stock piping.

the probl;em with the MAF housing that comes with the kit is that the orange gasket sealer used has holes and cracks in it which causes the air to leak at the MAF. Use a intake that has a MAF housing built in like SPT or Cobb

thats not the only issue. the advantage of the cobb is its velocity stack to correct air readings. the other issue with the kits intake is its bigger than stock at the ends, and tapers to the correct one. that tapering causes air turbulance.
