I hit the core with a thin layer of rattle can flat black. Its held up so far through the New England winter and cost me $1.50. You can get rattle ceramic paint too. Just sand the pipes to get it to stick well. I didn't prep the core because if you sand off the layer above the aluminum it will oxidize faster than you can blink.

I dropped the pipes off today to have them done. I am having them do the pipes, L bracket, one of the other metal pieces that was in the bag, the BPV adapter and the bumper beam. I am having them weld the beam a little better also so it's somewhat a solid piece, and not so flimsy. I plan on painting the core this weekend.

Whenever I get mine (bills to pay) I'd love to replace all the blue silicon connectors with black ones and powercoat the pipes pink or the closest to cherry blossom I could get or just wrinkle red. Maybe even powder coat my SPT intake to match.

Sorry, but there are no pics of the piping installed on the car with the nozzle in place.
Here is the SSAC fmic with the SMC nozzle.

Oh see I was under the impression that you put it on the cold side? Which IC pipe is that?

That would be the cold side(after passing through the ic and before it goes into the throttle body).

The part that is to the right of the nozzle in the pics is the bov.

OK guys. Today I was installing my intercooler and ran into some problems. The first is the cold side intercooler pipe seems like 2 inches 2 short.

Also and mainly,

My Tial blow of valve that I got for my gt30r setup is just MASSIVE compared to the BOV flange on the intercooler. I bought the TXS bov adapter and the Tial BOV is still massive compared to what its supposed to attach to.


Help

The Tial BOV should have come with it's own flange, which you will have to weld on to the intercooler.

For the piping to be 2 inches too short, did you put the pieces to where they touch within the couplers? Mine was a perfect fit. All I had to do was some adjusting on them to go right in place.

Both pieces were cut with the reinforced cut-off wheel and my Dremel tool. If you have the 2' extension for the Dremel that will work best to fit in such a tight spot.After the cuts were made you can use a utility knife to clean the cuts up and everything will be nice and smooth.

just bought mine from the a few days ago...and I didn't even e-mail them first. Well I did, but it took em 4 days to respond.

Anyway, using the info in this post I took a leap of faith and just sent the money through paypal and specified what FMIC I wanted. The next day I had a tracking #.

Now is the wait until Wednesday, and the decision of whether I should ceramic coat it, or use some high temp paint. I need the stealth factor
