ok well i read the first 4-5 pages, figured i had enough and searched ebay for a while

btw all you need to say is "search Scooby FMIC" instead of "blah blah blah blah two pages ago blah blah blah"

i can understand why you all get tired of repeated and beat up questions/topics but you cant expect someone to read this entire thread it is insanely long.

Please do keep us informed! I have read every page (on dialup) of this thread and I must say I am impressed! Also glad they dont put XS-Power on it anymore... that was ghey. Also post pics not assembled and assembled. Have fun and be careful cutting your bumper, ugh that scares me! And a review on your intake will help everyone out too since we know the Cobb works well with the kit.

Look forward to me buying this sometime in January.

I've been following this thread for a good amount of time. I found that one person said they are running the SPT intake with this kit. I believe it was EvilImports....any pics to support this? A friend of mine is looking into this kit and wants to be 100% it will fit before purchasing. I myself am looking into this set up too.

Any pics of the SPT intake with this kit would be helpful. Thanks in advance....

If anyone has any doubts about the power the intercooler wil make. My car can break the tires loose in 3rd (when wet, haven't tried during dry pavement yet)

question: i know a few have suggested AGAINST using the supplied shortram (from what i've read, mostly due to the fact that its glued/bolted on, and leaks)

now, i can TIG weld the flange at work, and after measuring it, its 2.75" (70mm) and tapers to 2.5" (65mm) where the MAF goes. is it this taper thats causing issues? (trying to save money where i can, and if the only reason this intake doesnt work is the leaks, well, thats easily fixed)

what issues? I am running the supplied maf tube and no problems. I simply unscrewed the mounting plate, removed the crappy red silicone, and used my own permatex ultra black. Let it dried and it works wonderfully.

Mine still hasn't had any issues, but I did check the seal before using it because it caught my eye.

I need to go look at mine. I swear there is no taper in it.

SSAC (ebay FMIC) FAQ:

Q:Who makes this kit?
A:The kit is made my XS Power and sold by them ans SSAutoChrome on ebay.

Q:Where can I buy this kit?
A:You can purchase the kit from www.SSAutoChrome.com or from their Ebay Store.

Q:How much is the kit?
A:As of July 31, 2006 the kit can be purchased from www.SSAutoChrome.com for $379.00 shipped but some have gotten it off ebay for $350.00 shipped.

Q:What else do I need to purchase?
A:
1) If you plan to use the stock BPV you need a WBR Bov Adapter (aqka:TurboXS BOV Adapter flange)


2) Any type of cone filter. Pepboys sell a universal K&N cone filter but any 3inch outlet cone filter should work.


3) A 2.5"-2.75" silicone REDUCER. Search ebay.


4) A 1 1/4inch 90deg elbow hose to attach your stock BPV to the FMIC piping.


5) Some of the newer kits seem to have a problem with the 90deg elbow that attaches to the turbo so one might need to be purchased. Your best bet it to try the elbow on your turbo before trying to install everything. The elbow should be 2inch to 2.5inch 90deg elbow.

Q:Will my Intake work with this FMIC?
A:It's been confirmed the Perrin shortram fits correctly. Most shortram intakes "should" fit but any CAI is out of the question since the piping uses the same hole in the fender well as the CAI do.

Q:This is a direct bolton kit?
A:Like most stuff even bolton kits require minor modifications. This kit will require you to cut your bumper to fit the IC behind it. You will also need to put on a new coolent overflow (provided in the kit). Some I have heared needed to lower their fuel filter a bit to get the kit in.

Q:Where is the install manual?
A:Intallation Manual

Q:Can I keep my fog lights?
A:Yes. ALL years (2002 to 2006) can retain their fog lamps.

Q: Does the kit say XS Power on it?
A:Not anymore. The kits in the beginning cam with "XS Power" spray painted on the IC but SSAC has stopped doing that.

Q:How are the other ebay FMIC kits?
A:This thread is NOT about them. This thread deals with the SSAC FMIC only. If you want feel free to start a new thread for the other kits.

Q:How can I stop my couplers from popping off a high boost?
A:Matth3w came up with a good idea.


Q:What year car will this FMIC fit?
A:2002 to 2006 WRX & STi (should fit the 2007 but I haven't seen anyone test it yet)

Q:Will my BOV work with this FMIC?
A:Any BOV that will normally attach to a TMIC "should" bolt on if you buy the flange.

================================================== =================================
END FAQ
================================================== =================================


It's a shame this thread was closed so quickly with any regards to the valued information inside it. I think it was poorly handled and thats all I'm going to say about that.
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...ight=ebay+FMIC

Now since these are back for sale on ebay I thought it would be good to keep the thread alive for new people. Does anyone know if the new kits come with the reducer or do you still need to pick one up?

I'm planning to pick one up at the end of Jan so any further information would be great.


cause obviously it needs to be on the last page. I've been getting pm's about this kit.

WRX-ERROR,

maybe we should include in the FAQ, to tell people to search "scooby fmic" on ebay?

also, we should put that it's be confirmed that the cobb intake works?

just some suggestions...

Added the Cobb intake.
Added the "scooby fmic" search words.
Fixed the link to SSAC ebay store.

And about the PMs for this kit. I still get them all the time. I don't mind helping people but 90% of the questions can be answered by the FAQ.

Q: Is the provided intake any good?
A: It's a 70mm that tapers to 65mm. It works about as well as the stock box does.
ADDED NOTE:Be sure to check the MAF adapter for air leaks. The rubber gasket provided with the intake is rather cheesy but can be fixed with a little silicone.

Need to add:

Q: How do I cut the bumper?
A: You need to fit it, take it off, cut more, test fit it again to see where it rubs or interferes, cut more, over and over, rinse and repeat. You can look at pictures that others have posted to get a general idea of where you are cutting, but you won't really "get it" until it you're doing it.
Use this Dremel bit, cuts through the plastic like butter:

Also, you can add this link to all the pictures I took, which may be helpful.

Feel free to hot link the images for use in this thread or the FAQ if needed.
