Another thing. What else is needed to run a txs top mount? Do i need to get STi ducting or run it with no ducting at all. JUs need some info. Thanks

I have the Greddy....and it's pretty freakin' quiet. You can hear it a little bit, but it sounds really good. Don't even hear it on the highway. As for the stealthback, I'm guessing it's gonna sound the same as stock because you are using the stock muffler??

As for the TXS TMIC, www.turboxs.com says, "includes cast "Y" piece and 2 silicone connectors" So I'm guessing you're not gonna need anything. But that shouldn't be your first step in modding your car. Open up the exhaust first and get some sort of engine management first. Then the bigger TMIC.

hope this helps,
Tim

I know that it comes with the y peice and 2 silicone connectors, but the txs top mount is huge. So im thinking it needs bigger ducting cause the stock one would be way too small for the TXS TMIC. That's why I asked if it needs Sti ducting. Thanks for the help

You have to use one of the stock elbows from the stock intercooler and reuse the gaskets, other than that all the parts need are supplied. It is a good idea to order new gaskets that go between the intercooler and the elbows and a new bov gasket because the come apart when you peel them off the stock intercooler, also i had to remove the stock air splitter because the hood wouldn't close with it.

There you go. So you need to remove the air splitter for it to fit. Thanks man. All I needed to know.
