I'm not sure what new turbulence you are meaning. Many wind tunnels and many mass airflow sensors have flow straighteners, and many of those are of honeycomb construction. The guy that sold me the honeycomb commented afterwards that one of the largest uses of honeycomb aluminum (besides structural stuff) is flow straighteners for wind tunnels to ensure laminar flow. Ideally you want the cell length to be at least 6X the cell diameter to completely kill the turbulence.

In about a month I will have flowbench data on this and other intakes with and without honeycomb and different honeycomb sizes/lengths. I will be measuring pressure drops across it too if I can (as it may be less than 1"H2O or 1/28th of a psi which is the smallest my manometer can measure)

hey, great minds think alike! About the same time, I made my own air straightener. Here's the thread:

I also epoxied the MAF mounting plate to the housing in addition to the screws to make sure it was firmly attached and sealed for good. Oh, and I polished the housing too.

Nice... my main goal is to solve the problem of the Subaru (Denso MAF) blow-thru MAF issues which I believe are due to turbulence, but it will most likely spill over into short rams and CAI's. Theoretically without flow straighteneing you need a straight pipe before the meter at least 6x the ID of the pipe to properly measure flow, but 10x is better. That's why the honeycomb is so useful for wind tunnels - 10 x 10' would be 100' long.

Has anyone installed the bumper support and intercooler?..... if im being stupid, Please someone correct me. Thanx
I don't know of anyone who cut their stock bumper support since it comes with the bumper beam. But if I had to guess, and based off other FMIC's I would think you could but it would be a lot of work.

How much coolant should be in the SSAC black pipebomb overflow container?
IE, whats considered adequate and need to add coolant!

You fill the coolant reservoir that is next to the turbo, not the overflow. If you overfill the reservoir the overflow will start to collect fluid. If you check the overflow on a hot day on a hot engine it may have some fluid in it as well, which is normal. When you add coolant add it to the reservoir, not the overflow.

I'm very interested in seeing how this works. Theoretically you could use this badboy to do a blow through setup if you stuck it in-line with the IC piping nearer to the intake mani. Good luck and be sure to post the results!

Has anyone ran this IC with a 06 wrx on the stock turbo? If so did you have a hi pitched noise under boost that sounded like a leak but there was not one to be found? I just installed mine and had no use for the hoses and t fittings that came in the small box, I thought it was used if you had not kept your stock bov. If I am wrong than if someone could give me some advise it would be greatly appriciated!

If you have a high pitched noise under boost....you most likely have a leak.


the hoses and t-fitting are for your crankcase breather system. look at pics in this thread previously...and you will find out. Its really not an option if you have the stock system. My system with the Crawford Air/Oil separator is completely different though....

did you pressure test everything? the piping isn't a great fit on the 06 so u want to make sure.. there are a couple of places i had to hammer to get the piping not to scrap on part of the car.

Hey guys I hope you dont care that i post this here i know its susposed to be in the "For Sale" forums but i figured since the parts are for this install it would help to have it here. I purchased two peices that i ended up not needing for my SSAC FMIC install and just wanted to know if anyone out there needed them... they are

1. 90 degree silicone elbow for the BOV SOLD!!!
2. Adapter flange for your stock BOV or other BOV'sSOLD!!!
3. Turbo/DP and Turbo/Uppipe Gaskets

Let me know if anyone is interested, i'll shoot you some prices.

By the way i installed this on a 2006 WRX TR if anyone would like some pics of need any questions answered shoot me a PM...

Also, has anyone else had a problem with they idle after this FMIC install???

Let me know,
THANKS GUYS,

CHRIS

I forgot to mention the rough idle is before it has been tuned waiting for that next week...i would assume this is normal bc the EM is still running for the stock TMIC

EDIT: IM RUNNING THE COBB SR INTAKE

I would think this is more likely due to the intake you're running. At idle I don't think the ECU would know what IC you're running. What intake is it anyway? Did you change to it when you installed the FMIC?

so to confirm, how many of you were able to use the spt intake on 2006 wrx, planning to make an order and I know I need the stock BOV adaptor, 90 degree elbow and just wanting to see which intake I am going to go with

I am running the SPT intake as of right now and am looking into getting this FMIC in the next few months. I have yet to get a response with a picture to back up that it works. I think it should fit, but not 100%.
