Also I can't find anywhere on Flyin' Miata's site to buy the intercooler hoses separate from the intercooler kit.

Is this something you need to call them about?

I can never successfuly browse to them on the FM site. Punch the word "intercooler” into their search box and they should be on page 2.

it will never come up with searching/browsing. I tried it. you have to have the link, or just call or just email them.
I had the link but erased it, or I'd give it to you

the begi and fm sites were probably put together when the internet was invented, and not a single time updated since then. its truly sad.

but they are great over the phone, very helpful

The TB inlet 90° that FM sells is also a nice custom piece. I had someone confirm in another thread that the aluminum section where FM intends you to stick the IAT and has the BOV bung is 2.5" ID and about 7" L. If you feel like trying to fab one you can get a 12" stick of 2.5" pretty easily from somewhere like siliconeintakes, or I'm sure FM would be happy to sell you one and save you the hassle.

I got both those pieces from siliconeintakes, as well as turbo inlet.

IMO mine turned out much cleaner and cheaper than FM's

I like you currently, but depending on the box of dicks mounted on bronies I receive, I may change my opinion

I had a lazy streak this afternoon so I haven't done...well...anything. I did get my boost source tapped for the boost gauge though. I T'd off the FPR where the MS3 board T's off of as well.

I have a ton of firewall grommets laying around so I just drilled a hole through one and popped it through. May change it but I just wanted to see how it looked.

I was going to tap the middle vacuum line(old charcoal canister tap) but I didn't want to clutter up the engine bay anymore than necessary. It is already a rats nest on that side of the engine.

Interior line, quite the massive brass connector, seems unnecessarily big.



Routing will be cleaned up later but here it is T'd off the FPR.



Can anyone tell me where the VICS vacuum lines go to on the I.M.? Not sure if the lower line is correct and haven't spent the time researching the unconnected line.

You saying you were lazy...

God at the end of the 7th day "I've been really lazy guys, I didn't do ANYTHING today.". Uh, didn't you just create the world and humanity in 6 days? "Yeah but I've been lazy".

It's called TAKING A BREAK.

I quite literally have to force myself to relax. I've been multitasking for so many years I get fidgety doing nothing.

But yes...I was taking a break, wrong word choice.

I'll be honest... I'm shocked those bundles of greasy wire made it back into the car.

I've been in wiring mode more so that cleaning mode lately. Once I solve the huge amount of wiring issues the car has, then I'll spit shine it all pretty.
