Default Picture request: heritage greddy turbo installation

Hi all,
I picked up an intercooler kit which I discovered is the intercooler that came with the old greddy turbo kit. I have the more recent version installed in my car already. I've searched google and the forums, and could not find any pictures of what the old set up looks like, or directions on installation. I was wondering if anyone has any pictures, or better yet, instructions as to how that old greddy system worked. Here's a couple of pictures of the intercooler and piping I got. Any help as to how I go about installing this thing would be greatly appreciated. I'm attaching photos of what I currently have in my car, and the kit that I picked up. Thanks a lot in advance!

never seen one of those intercooler set-ups before but it looks to clean to be a custom set-up. Almost looked like a stripes kit at first glance but I really don't think it is. Just get the intercooler mounted and start holding pipes up at different angles til you figure out the right order, not rocket science.

EDIT: you're going to need to get the BOV that the flange on that pipe is meant for before attempting to use this intercooler, looks to be a greddy style flange if my memory serves me right.. and for the record the "Stock" greddy set-up isn't intercooled if you're under the impression that you already have an intercooler (the way you worded your questions sounds like you think there is an intercooler there now.)

i had the same setup believe it or not.



I had both the pipes exiting out the passanger side of the car. I used one of the bolts available to mount the bracket too.

To be honest. I did the same exact thing once i got my greddy kit. Guess what the veterans of this forum said. "the only way to do this is to start grabbing pieces"

I have since then went with a CX racing intercooler kit and couldnt be happier to get rid of the previous system

Thanks a lot for the responses guys. I kind of figured I'd need to just start experimenting, but your description and the picture at least gets me started as to what pieces fit where.

Its a "Trust" intercooler kit i believe. Make sure you hook the BOV up right. You can also do this mod EVO Motorsports - Evo VIII Performance Upgrades and Accessories - Type-S Single Spring Mod I did it and it sounds much better and doesnt leak. Took me about 20 minuets and i cleaned everything and relubed it all up. Make sure you get your intercooler attached to the frame atelast 1 point but 2 or 3 is preferable. TBH i ran that intercooler setup for less than 5 miles ( not a typo )

greddy made a japan only miata turbo kit with a different manifold/turbo and that one came with an I/C. Never seen pictures of it. Could this be it?

It was the JDM greddy turbo set up with the 16 G turbo, you will have an additional injector inlet also.
