Below the battery is another hump coupler. You just remove the couple on top of the battery and move the pipe.
Yes you cna get the pipes in red.
The kit has been fitted with 20g, 16g, 68HTA, VF39, etc.....
Out of the 100+ kits sold over the last year I have yet to here of a STi style turbo that didn't fit. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures of the Front end of the Sti.

Do you charge more for colored coatings? Can you match the factory STI intake manifold?
What turbos have you tested fitment with? Is it compatible with something like a 20G, FP Green, FP Red, or Deadbolt turbos?

Do you have any more pics installed on a 08+ STI? Front shot without a license plate?

How many deposits have you received so far? $350 isn't exactly loose change nowadays.

Brian,
End of April may be too long for me. Can you produce the kit for $699 if I need it sooner?

Thanks

So, far I have 2 full payments. I only make my kits if there is a demand. Back in the in of '09 when I made the FMIC for the '05-'09 LGTs. I was asked to come up with a kit that would fit LGTs with air pumps , keep the fog lights and not hard to install. I refused to make a kit without a crash beam. Because it is insane to me to drive a car with no crash beam. It's great to go fast but, what happens if you have an accident?

On my first GB on legacygt.com back when I was just a member on the site and no one know if I could pull it off or how well the kit would work I got 35 deposits. http://legacygt.com/forums/showthrea...-126386p2.html By the time the kits got in I had sold out of the extra I had bought. I'm well know on Legacygt.com. So now over a year later and 3 GB and hundreds of positive post about the kit I keep getting pm's about making a kit for the STi. So I made it and I only got 2 orders on this site. I don't know if it's the economy or STi market is too small. This is the only kit that lets you keep your stock crash beam, overflow tank, foglights, and without hacking your car. But, there is no demand it no reason to make the kit. If we don't get more I just refund the 2 that paid. I will still offer my '05-'09 LGT and '08 WRX kits.

I understand there is a frustration element going on here for you since people asked you for the kit but aren't joining the GB. I just want to know for those of us who want the kit, is there a price at which you can make only two kits? $700? $750?
Thanks

^ yup

The routing for this kit is so different than most kits that it creates a bit of skepticism. This is the only FMIC kit I've seen route back from the turbo and under the mess of wires and hoses.

My thinking is, these extra bends and routing around the hotside and over the DP might negate the benefit of shorter piping.

The kit is not a copy of someone elses kit it is a new design that I came up with. Alot of other kits are just copies of the Turbo XS kit that has been around since '02 WRXs. Just look and compare. The pipes and the setup have been proved to work very well over the last year it's been out. You thinking about the hotside is not correct. But, really what is your question about the pipes? I(I have the kit on my 340Whp pump gas and 370+whp on e85 daily driver Legacy GT wagon) over 100 customers have not had issues with the routing. All counterclockwise kits run similar on the hotside of the turbo. Some use a straight 90 deg. bend of the turbo while mine is not as severe. Also I ran it that way so any intake will work and some have even got stock airbox to fit with some trimming.
The only difference between this setup and my LGT and WRX kits is the last pipe on the coldside. If you want results I will copy and paste post for legacygt.com and 3gwrx.com

VF39 on e85 and 91 pump gas.

IMO, its easier to attack a cyn with a wide low tq band than peak boost (unless you are an amazing driver).

EDIT: the REFERENCE hp/tq = CA *****ty oxygenated 91oct pump

Can I order one with a bpv/bov flange on the hot side rather than the cold side near the TB?

"Can't get a better fit than racerx, I have one...."

"New Blouch 20G-XT #'s: 334whp/322wtq -91 octane"
"Im happy with my RacerX fmic and stock vf46. I don't fell that much lag with a nice tune. "
pm's
"Hey there,

Got the kit installed and picked up SIGNIFICANT power over the stock TMIC. 30 fl-lbs without a tune, and another 30 after a proper tune. I didn't see that coming, maybe that ceramic coating and the thermal dispersant work better than I thought!

Since I tend to be a head case, and worry about wearing stuff out, would it be possible to pick up extra silicone couplings and a couple clamps? I just want some spares in the event of a failure. If this is possible, what would it cost? I'd prefer black but as a replacement, I'd take whatever.

Also, any suggested torque for the clamps?

Thank's a ton, I'm really liking the FMIC"

Maybe the thing I forget is that to Nasioc I'm "New" But, On legacygt.com I have been on that site since '05 and everybody knows me there. This thread will give you all the background and hopefully fill in the blanks. To show you the kit works and your fears about the pipes are not warranted.

I guess my question is how you made a kit claiming 2 feet less piping than existing kits even though it routes back rather than forward. I'm also trying to figure out how much efficiency is lost by routing the pipe over the hot side of the turbo and DP then closer to the exhaust manifold than others I've seen.

Your kit is one of the more thought out kits keeping OEM parts in place, a huge bonus in my book. The only reason you don't have my deposit is whether I can budget the cost and time for an install and tune right now.

The reason I know the pipe is shorter is back in '06 I started this DIY FMIC thread. http://legacygt.com/forums/showthrea...light=diy+fmic and I modded the a Turbo XS FMIC made for a '02+ WRX/Sti and XO2 racing bought the design and made this kit. http://legacygt.com/forums/showthrea....html?t=100630 It was was exactly how I would have done it (no beads on some pipes and thin wall and flanges) but I sold it to them so all I could do was help people that bought the kit because of my post. I still get PM's from people that bought the kit and I help them all. Now godspeed even copied that kit and even use my pictures. http://legacygt.com/forums/showthrea...di-156824.html That's my kids bat in the bov recir hose. When I installed the production kit I ran out of time and had to pickup my kits. But only '05-'06.
I kept getting request from to make a kit that would fit cars with air pumps. I started the GI thread to see what people wanted. They wanted to keep their unmodified crash beam, easier to install, keep stock overflow tank, keep fog lights, not have to hack their car and all at a fair price. So I made a custom FMIC for LGTs. I made the kit that people wanted not a take it or leave it kit. I paid for all the prototypes. You can see in the threads that people wanted to send money before it was done for my work. If it didn't work out I didn't feel it was right to take money. I just told them if I meet all of the demands don't leave me hanging and not buy the kit. At the time my wife had been laid off for about 6 months and this cost me thousands to get done. I had to start a LLC and DBA and start a real company with a tax ID, website and everything.(you also have to have all of that to be a vendor on NASIOC). When I was done I started taking deposits. Lecacygt.com didn't let me down and I got 43 orders and that was when the kit was @$815 shipped. Now over 100 kits sold all over the country and Canada, I'm here because people said I should come. I got alot of PM's about the STi kit so I made it and "cricket chirps" I got 2 orders. So I'm going to make it for those guys because they stepped up to the plate. I'm going to lose some money but, they stepped up.

I'm 99% sure the pipes will fit your FXT. Only thing is you might have to relocate you overflow tank. I just haven't checked the bumper clearance.

And when I get the kit and get it on my sti I will shout from the rooftops how great it works with a built motor and a t60r. I've never even posted a part review or ppb thread but will to tell people specifically about this kit cuz I'm hoping that it works great and people have another option for great power without a fmic that is overkill for their needs.

This is what I'm going to do. I going to send you a refund. I don't like to tie up other peoples money. I will contact you by the end of the month to let you and the other guy know if I can find someone that will make the pipe for the both of you. It's easier to have 10 full kits made then 2 pipes. But, if I can it should take about a week to be made once I find someone to do it.

This is unfortunate. Please let me know ASAP if you can get this done for us. My car will start going together at the end of this month and I would like to have something in my hands by the middle of April. If you can make this work it would be great since I really want to run your kit. If not I will have to do something else.
