You should paint the FMIC high temperature gold and your car could have a rapper's grill... /sarcasam

Looks good man.

It'll be painted black at least. I already have the paint, just need some time and the temperature to be right before I do it. FMIC will be shelved for the next two weeks at least because of work. I don't have the new bpv yet anyways so I can't run it until I have that.

Not yet, it took most of the day Saturday to get the core fitted up and I wanted to relax on Sunday. I started just eyeballing the pipes. The passenger side will be easy, drivers side will be fun. Like I said though, I don't have time until next weekend at the earliest so it'll be a bit before the thing is 100%.

Pfft whatever bro. It cools the air before it goes to my radiator, letting my engine run 90* cooler. I've felt an easy 50whp from the extra compression my colder engine has.

I didn't have to watch it... I lived it.... He tuned my 07wrx.... I was standing beside him when he was in my car and he said "Get the $%^&in cigarette outta my face bro".... Among other things.... He's a funny guy.

Knows his stuff too.

And BTW Kirt, mind numbing is watching you play GT5.... LOL

Got the bpv last night.... It's gorgeous. The only thing I'll say is, if I'm looking at a part and TiAL makes it, I'm getting the TiAL. All they're products are perfection and worth every extra penny. Even with my guy's prices the TiAL QR is about $75-100 MORE than about any other BPV on the market besides the COBB XLE.

Sucker's big





50mm valve face, that should hold anything I can throw at it. 10psi spring BTW.



Heading out of town after the weekend though, so no progress on the pipes will happen until next weekend at the earliest. My goal right now is basically get the FMIC done in January.

After FMIC, I'll be getting my intake valves (supertech), valve springs (bc/supertech), ACT HD clutch (screw carbonetic they're slow as ##### ), KillerB Oil Pan, Pickup, and Baffle.

Should be a good February

That's big, unless you have the hand size of a 5 yr old.

That makes me wonder and hope I'm getting a TiAL FMIC BOV. LOL, I might have to send chad another e-mail. Chris you keep bringing up good info. Chad should be good for it because he hates piss poor quality on most of his parts.
