    My finished FMIC project w/ *PICS*

    heres my setup. just posting this for ppl making their own custom FMIC setup (and for comments on mine ). so they can get an idea for what they wanna do.

    i went with an intercooler off ebay, dimensions are 20"x12.25"x3.5". it was almost a perfect fit in there, i didnt have to do any cutting. just used some brackets, nuts and bolts from lowe's. cost $225 shipped.


    for the tubing i bought some various bends. 2mm thick and 2 of each : straight, 90*, 75*, 45*. came with 6 silicone couplers and 12 t-bolt clamps. i only used 2-45's, 1 straight and one 75. but i did have to buy 2 45* silicone couplers to finish it up. cost was about $140 shipped.

    finished it up by slapping the fan from my stock IC on there. 8" 800CFM. i also grinded down the return plenum flange so it would take a coupler and took the collar nut off the sc top.

    scale of 1 to 10 i would say it was a 6. just a little bit of ingenuity had to go into it.

    let me know what u guys think. i'll be glad to answer any questions about your own projects too.

    i bought the same i/c and piping kit so your install gives me ideas on what i'm gonna do. the install looks good, i just don't like using 90 degree couplings because they collapse under boost. let us know how good of a job it does.

    they wouuldnt collapse under boost. IF anytthing they'd expand. but if you have three or four ply you should be fine

    i beg to differ with you, a while back when quick35th installed his liquid to air i/c his video showed them collapsing almost flat.

    under vacuum they can collapse, especially while the engine is decelerating. but under boost they are pressurised. and can not collapse.

    I kinda see where you're coming from.

    i talked to Dave N. about this IC and he said he knew mustang's with the same setup and they were making big hp #'s.

    thats what i'm saying. if they're collapsing under boost there's issue's. i'm not unfamiliar to f/i vehicles at all,haveing had five of them. i've seen the stock rubber hose's on my probes intercoolr expand greatly under 16lbs. i've yet to see anything collapse under boost though,i'd like to see this video

    His setup should be good for about 250rwhp. A short run IC isn't typically enough for an eaton at high boost and his motor is otherwise pretty much stock.
