Can anyone direct me to a link showing how to run my Charge piping to my FMIC. The intercooler is sort of small, but it is a longer version with the inlet/outlet horizontally parallel with each other. I am @ work or else I would post up pics and measurements. It will be going on a NB, all I can find are links for NA's or NB routing throught the top with the radiator pushed back. Thanks

not sure i understand, but i guess just check out these pics
also, are you doing your own IC route or did your Kit come with some?

see if that helps you, this is a DIY set up
the piping can differ in a few ways though, so i cant help you there without seeing what you have...

Thanks, yah I will try to get some pictures up tonight. It came with a couple of bends, but the previous owner sold the BOV with a piece he cut from the set up. I know its hard to explain so I will try to post up pictures tonight. But where would I get those brackets, is it all just custom fabircation using pieces from a metal supplier? Also, do I just have to remove the front bumper to access that area or is it much more. Thanks for the pictures, and that looks to be my IC type.

its an ebay intercooler and "cuztom bracketz" yo, haha
well, the brackets were actually kinda easy to make, just bought some 1" wide aluminum from home depot and then just cut to length and bend to desired angle, do not over bend it cause aluminum does not like to be corrected...the holes where the brackets bolt up to the car were already there...you'll see once you take the bumper off, its really easy, just use common sense, the bottom ones just get the idea from this pic. i also used some rubber spacers to help longevity...

the car in pictures has both AC and PS so you should be OK if you have those as well
and please list your location in your profile...

Fashizzle... looks like you bought it at FM. All you need to do is round off the bombass edgez yo! Change your correction factorizzle to 1.21 on your next dyno run and you'll be making JDM power.

For my situation, might it be easier just to purchase a voodoo box?

Its only because I want this thing to just get up and run...and compared to what I have heard...
wideband 180
MS 340
Cas 100
620 vs. the 415 for a Voodoo box seems cheap...someone show me where I am going wrong, I believe I am way too new to my miata's ECU/FMU.

look at it this way
do it right=MS 350+wideband 180+CAS 75ish=appx$600
do it wrong=voodoo 415, and then MS 350+wideband 180+CAS 75ish=appx$1015
so it is safe to say that:
cheaper way=do it right the first time
now you get it...

Hey, I have a 99 as well and my stock ecu controls the 330cc injectors that I have in there . You might be a little rich but you will be able to drive your car instead of waiting to figure out your management issues.

With the larger injector you need a wideband too...
Listen to those guys here... They really know what they are doing.

After 6 psi you want 8 -- 10 --12 psi ... So do it right... 1st time..

Most non specialty pipe stores don't carry BSP threaded fittings, it's just not a common fitting here. FWIW
You want a male BSP fitting, that converts into 2 1/8" NPT female fittings.
You could just buy the tunertoys one. It's around $21 shipped and it works perfect.

Thanks, but I am wondering why everyone says its BSP. If the thread is BSP into the block than wouldn't the OPS be BSP as well, seeing that its already in the block. If true than wouldn't that make one of the females BSp and not NPT?

Sorry for the confusion. The adapters have a male and female 1/8 BSP port. The OPS is 1/8 BSP, people aren't lying about this. I wanted one with 1/8 NPT female ports because i converted to a VDO OPS to convert my OPG to something that gives me a usable reading compared to the stock dummy gauge.
You just have to use your brain when it comes to things like that, there are always people giving out info that might pertain to them only. In my case, my stock BSP OPS went in the trash.
