You're using Imgur, there is a edit tool on the site to re-size images, if you happen to have an account there

Interesting route you took with your intercooler...Haven't seen it ran that way before. Got other pics of it to show how you routed it.

Did you keep the AC?

Damn..you could of been the first to have the FMIC & working AC...LOL


I know others would be interested in you setup. You kept the OEM intake pipe as well with the different routing. This might be the easiest one I seen with the least "fabrication" utilizing the stock pipe.

Take some better pictures..I'm interested! My ClubSprint has ice-cold A/C and is getting a FMIC this Spring.
One suggestion for you: re-route the piping so that the MAF sensor sits level and flat, not on an angle like you have it now. The MAF sensor needs to be flat to work properly...!

so to those of you who thought you had to get rid or your a/c.

 


 


 

 

yea there is plenty of room for the compresor and the lines, I even threw the compressor up there to double check.  But since I have only two hands and little to no brain   ;)   I couldn't manage of pic of me holding it there.

glowshift gauges 7 color plus my radio
 
 
where I shoved the bov...its loud as hell!
 

Also I have decided when I do the clutch I'm throwing in a light weight flywheel.

Thanks for updating with pics.

Now please, register for an account on Imgur or elsewhere & resize your pictures - I have a pretty big monitor and they're still way too big. (it's free & takes 30 seconds to do) Thanks  

Are you going with the Fidanza wheel? You'll love it.

yea I will do that before I post pics again    and I was considering either that or the "spec" brand one.  Have you used either?

SPEC brand is a Fidanza with a different sticker on it  

I have been running a Fidanza flywheel for several years now, with different clutches and different engines. I love it, it works very very well with the AWD system I have now.

It'll take a little getting used to but it make the engine feel much more crisp and responsive. Engine braking is a little different too, there's no sudden deceleration when you downshift. It's more "fluid"
