Artech side mount arrived yesterday. I would post some pictures but photobucket is trippin.

Keep in mind this is on an nb2, the compressor outlet in the 7:00 position terminates at the lower coolant hose. I bought fm pipes for this setup, knowing the turbo is in the same general area, just a bit higher. Do i need to replace the lower coolant hose or clock in a different position?

Yep get the lower fm hose. Also you can get the bigger fitting for the turbosmart. in fact, I might have one laying around. what size you need?

I thought the fm hose was a fix for the na's?

In my searches last night, corky suggested a 21 inch long flexible napa hose for someone in my same situation.

I bought the correct turbosmart and am trying to sell the incorrect one. But it would still be helpful to either have or know where to get the adapters. The wrong one has 20mm inlet and outlet. The correct one is 34mm in and 20 out.

the fm hose is a "fix" for all that use the traditional routing.
I'd gladly pay the 20 extra for a properly shaped silicone hose then some ugly accordion looking hose.

or you can spend a few hours digging through the local part store hoses and find one that's properly shaped I guess. it's not a complicated shape

I bought my replacement TS BOV fittings from Fab9. Call him, he can find what you are looking for but don't trust the part numbers on Turbosmart's website.

Okie. Will look into the hose and the fittings. Thanks.

Next problem is the fm IC pipes mating to a fab9 IC. I remember reading somewhere that these pipes will work with the fab9 with a little modification. I cant seem to find what the modification is. Passenger side contacts the sway bar enough to distort the pipe. Drivers side might not be an issue once i get the lower hose sorted, but it is contacting the sway bar mount and distorting.

Touching one of the heater core pipes. I am guessing a slight bend in the hard line will fix this?




Just to show where the compressor outlet is in relation to the lower rad pipe. I understand the fm rad pipe follows the oem general shape. Not sure it will gain me any room?

Thoughts on this configuration? Not sure i want the additional length of pipe.

Next move is to remove the lower rad pipe and see what room is left. If i can get the fm pipe to attach, then i will find a new route for the lower rad pipe.

Interesting that the fm hot side pipe can be oriented to fit through the hole behind the headlight. Its all wrong on the top side, so would have to be cut.

I cant use the fm pipe how it is designed. It makes hard contact with ac lines etc. I think i am going with that hole and the compressor clocked to 3 o'clock. The biggest challenge is routing around the fm elbow with maf attached. It pushes the filter into the same area the pipes would be. I can trim but i am not sure enough room would be created. I only need the maf installed long enough to get through emissions.

Does the strut tower bar do anything on the nb2's? I would have to eliminate it.
