ok Ive been searching boards of ways route my FMIC piping without cutting up everything. My FMIC is 6.5'' tall, 27.5 long (without including the end tank there like 2'' long)and the width of the FMIC is 2.2''.

should i follow the piping style like rulez or does anybody have a better route to go

In order to get a FMIC, you have to hack up the front bumper cover. There is really no other way around it unless you run your piping through the other side of the car like I did and have the FMIC fit up next to your A/C condensor.

I have IC piping for sale, but it comes with a turbo kit attached :lol:

I think you are learning first hand there is no cheap way out of doing a turbo kit properly the first time around.

yeah im still learning thats why the kit isnt going on right away. but heres the solution installed the kit non intercooled but mount the FMIC then probably take it to this guy i know or a muffler shop to fabricate the pipes.

Taking it to a muffler shop is like pulling your car into the back of home depot to get worked on. I have never heard of any muffler shop that uses a mandrel bender or cuts & welds mild steel bends. You really should take it to a performance shop or a shop that does more than welds on exhaust hangers and mufflers onto cars.

You need a shop that does mandrel bends, and has a bead roller.

ok i think we got the idea of how to run my run pipes we took your design and rulez design and fuse them take a look


basically run the pipe under the other one but its still under construction

nevermind that wont work back to the drawing board :bash:
