Thats no Moon, Thats a space station!
FMIC fitted :)
Well had another late night mechanics session with Tom (Future) and we managed to get my new Apexi FMIC installed.
Tom was the expert in this matter as he has mocked up an install for his car so he advised me on what to buy etc and i also had a read through both Westy`s build thread (cheers) and the FMIC sticky.
We started about 6pm last night and by 10pm we had got the FMIC on the car (bumper on with a couple of fixings) and went for a few test runs to see if we had any boost leaks etc. All was good so grabbed a Maccy D`s and then got back to fitting it back together.
Relocated the horn etc to the passenger side location where the SMIC was and then got the bumper back on properly. We had removed the whole lower grill from the bumper while it was off so we could see if there was any issues refitting it. I am using 63mm pipe work and with only a very small amount of trimming i managed to get the whole grill, foglights etc back in and sitting flush so was very pleased aboout that as i wanted to keep the OEM look as much as possible.
Went for some more test runs about midnight as Tom was also dong a few bits to his car now as he thinks either his wastegate actuator or N75 is being a bit faulty.
Car pulls really well infact we logged a reading of about 210g/s from about 4200rpm and then peaked and 230g/s but basically held about 220g/s for most of the top end.
We did about 3 or 4 3rd gear runs after the car had warmed up and then we popped the bonnet open and the throttle body was proper cold to the touch so was very impressed at the new coolers ability.
Gonna get booked in for the stage 2 revo upgrade asap now
