Looking VERY nice there buddy!

Can I ask... Is that a twin entry FMIC??? If so... Why? I'm not questioning your decision as such, just curious, I don't know much about them thats all.

Cheers :D

Yep its a twin entry FMIC ...... in response 2 ur other question ... Why ? .... simple real estate under the bonnet :lol::lol::lol: ....... there isnt enough of it to run down the other side of the car ..... plus the way the turbo is positioned it would be ludacrous to try and run piping across the engine bay as more pipe = more lag (obviously u could offset this by using smaller piping but again y run metres n metres of piping) .... the other thing is take a good look down the driver side of the engine bay (picture below) and ull see trying to bend piping through that maze is near impossible ...... and dont forget u would need to run piping for the air filter as well as the intercooler so good luck to anyone wanting 2 take that challenge ..... lol ..... but hey if u spun the turbo around atleast it would make building the dump pipe a whole lot easier ..... :lol::lol::lol:

Sorry for my ignorance can sum1 please explain wat a dual entry FMIC intercooler (I tried researching but didnt come up with much at all), all I found out was that it has 2 inlets n 2 outlets (correct?) :unsure:

there is a single inlet and a single outlet however they are both on the same side ..... a "normal" FMIC usually as the inlet on one side and the outlet on the other side ....

I am pretty sure the turbo will mount something like this carlo C2 like to low/mid mount their turbos on the ZZ's

gtsheader.jpg

not sure which direction bill is going to have the compressor outlet if he is going under like the C2 kit or over the top...

Gotta fight the heat as best as possible ;) ;) ;)

Sorry guys the positioning of everything is currently being patented so i can tell u but i'd then have 2 kill u :lol::lol::lol::lol: ...... but seriously in all honesty if anyone else is going to attempt this my recommendation to you is (and u can choose 2 listen 2 this advice or not .... up2 u really) that everything is custom built DONT BUY ANYTHING FROM THE KITS SOLD OVERSEAS .......

and to all the ppl biatching about how the car looks ...... im more concered with how she will go rather than how it looks :P :P :P :P :P i'd rather have it all go and no show rather than the other way around :P :P :P :P :P :P

Have you thought about putting a scoop on the bonnet so that air can flow down over the exhaust and firewall, kinda like what the 00-05 Celica's scoop is for ?

Where's the intake from the filter placed?

the air filter is in the black box in the right hand corner ..... and the pipe from the air filter goes into the side of the turbo ......

Looks FANTASTIK mate, if you don't mind me asking how much did this little project set you back?

I've been thinking of going S/C as I don't want the lag, are you getting a lot of lag or?

Cheers, Niko

how much did those rims set u back brother?

more than you can afford pal ..... ferrari .... hahahahhahah

sorry I couldnt help myself ...

hahahahahaha you are a stooge jase .... lol .... love the f&f quotes .... lol

rims were 49,000 yen per rim + shipping + customs.

Those are TRD rims, I think production of this series has stopped. I saw a set on yahoo auctions a while ago so keep an eye out.

you're partially correct ..... TRD did stop production on a subset of their rims however the ones i got are still in product.
