Arrow Greddy Bolt-on users, I need a little help.

I'm buying a bolt-on kit with all the piping, but it will not come with the silicone couplings to join the pipes. Could you please tell me whats sizes those are, so I can get them on order. This is all I"m getting with the kit. I tried calling Greddy, but cant get anyone to give me the information. Thanks in advance

There's really no way for us to know. AFAIK Greddy kits didn't come with IC kits so it's more than likely a DIY setup. You should ask the person you got if from what sizes you need, or wait until you get them and then measure.

https://www.miataturbo.net/forum/t852/ These are the install instructions, I'm sure you have read them and have them memorized, I know that the U-Pipe to the MAF is a 2.75 and I believe the other 2 couplers are 2". The abbreviation for Alabama in your location should also be capitalized. Not being a dick, just trying to help.

^ Good excuse to get a good actuator.

Edit - Milton beat me.

Thanks all. I got a actuator on the way. That's the first thing I noticed when I saw the pics.

Nothing fancy. Just a universal unit similar to the one that came with the greddy kit. What would one recommend. I'm always up for a upgrade in the near future

I use this one, which is used on the FM1 but works great on the Greddy, just jigsaw a bracket up and go to town (you also need the other end of the rod and an extension so it'll reach).

Just wondering if this regulator will be ok.
BLUE FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR SUPRA RX7 MIATA MX5 86+:eBay Motors (item 270421977440 end time Aug-05-09 14:45:21 PDT)

Oh yea, I've read that installing a 255 LPH fuel pump would be too much or did I read wrong? I've searched ebay for a Walbro 190 LPH and cant seem to find one. All I see are the 255's

Just trash the pipes, and get new ones with a FMIC. The Greddy ones barely fit, and you'll be glad you installed a FMIC and better piping.
