There have been posts from many happy owners. You will also find fitment issue posts as well. You'll have to decide for yourself. Definitely make sure you get their Y-pipe if you do buy from them.

Most comments have been from other boards that I have seen. Mostly on "nasty sock".

did you not read the link I posted in your thread about "hybrid Front mount"? I posted a link to NASIOC that is freaking huge about people discussing it and reviewing. I told you also that I own one and dont have any issues and I know of a few others that have it and dont have any issues.

I just got it last week . Came with everything . Youll have to trim a hose a little . Fit pretty good after that .

Just transfer your stock BPV onto the new intercooler and sell the BOV for whatever you can get for it.

Mosc is the expert around here, and I asked him bout similar TMIC's at least price range wise and he seemed to strongly believe that you get what you pay for and that they were not very good, As a result I've been opting to go with the perrin tmic stealth which is way more expensive but I am trusting him on this one and hope that it holds true that you get what you pay for. Good luck with what ever you choose to do.

The SSAC's "huge" size is an overestimate. It's slightly bigger than the STi's top mount which is a fair bit smaller than the Perrin unit.

I have always heard both good and bad, not really too much pull either way for me.
I am in no way knocking their product, I do agree with mosc on this part though, you might just get what you pay for. I opted for a perrin ss FMIC and will never have a problem with it, so I paid a little* extra for the added security of my purchase.

*maybe more than a little.

Wow, it can turn well too?

Has anyone tried the CSS TMIC? It is cheaper by a couple hundred $. It could be a solution for suby777.

The CSS one is not that big either.

Why are you worried about upgrading your top mount if you're not going to get something larger? The STi, CSS, and SSAC are all good to about VF39 or small 16G size. Bigger than that you're going to want something larger. Especially on the 2.5L cars.
