    FMIC fitted :)

    Hello Peeps,

    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

    Got some pics so will post up later on as they are on my parents laptop. Will take a few more in the daylight.

    Did a few logs but not sure if we got AIT`s so will have a look. What is the sensor that monitors the AIT`s?

    The sensor is mounted in the front of the inlet manifold just after the TB, you can't miss it.

    is it on the black pipe you connect the FMIC to on the throttle body side? as if so i think mine might need replacing as i tried to remove it to give it a clean and its welded in and the screws just turn but wont undo.

    So probably need to get the pipe and the sensor any ideas on what this might cost and whats the sensors name is it the map sensor?

    Just checked dont have logs of AIT`s in the logging as was just testing for boost leaks etc but it has to be better than the SMIC`s but a long way as Toms`s throttle boday after a couple of runs (hes still on the SMIC setup) is so hot you cant touch it. whereas mine is now cold and slowly warms up while it sat on the driveway switched off.

    Will get some piccies up in a mo.

    I did have to trim a little off the back of the big lower grill as the pipes are slightly pushing on the bumper but not much and then all went back together swimmingly which i was impressed with as i went for the 63mm (2.5") pipe work.

    Its not the biggest cooler in the world but should defo suit my Stage 2 requirements and for the money almost a no brainer especially with the delta fin design.

    Just been looking on ECP and ebay at map sensors and they say they monitor boost pressure not ambient air temp so does it do 2 jobs?

    How many times do you want me to say it!? The AIT sensor is mounted in the front of the inlet manifold just to the left of the TB. Open up your bonnet and you'll be able to see it.

    Lol.

    You know where the throttle body is? Well the throttle body attaches to the inlet manifold. The metal thing that is above the dipstick that then bolts onto the engine. Well in the manifold, on the front is a black sensor screwed in by 1 Allan key type bolt. It should have an electrical connector to it. I'd get you a pic but I'm currently on the train.

    It's an AIT or Air Intake Temp sensor. They rarely break so I probably just needs a clean. Get some carb cleaner or brake cleaner on there and all that oil will come off.

    When doing data logging in VCDS the AIT temps are on block 118. Give it a clean and see what figures you're getting.

    I miss the late night mech sessions, glad you lads are having fun. Be good to see what this does on the rollers when mapped.

    Mine is going into rtech in 2 weeks time for a custom map with as many mods as any stage 2 I know of so I'm hoping to get close to 300bhp on a stock K04.

    Yup

    spec is as in my sig and the g/s readings have steadily gone up over the last few months and mods.

    Was getting about 205g/s begining of summer, i then got an 80mm TIP and a jetex induction kit which boosted it to about 217g/s but then my maf died so get a new Bosch and got 223g/s! fitted 3" DP and 200 cell cat got me to 226g/s and lastly the FMIC last night we saw it get to 220g/s at about 4200rpm and held this too 6980 peaking at 229-230g/s.

    All this on revo stage 1 software

    Mine is going into rtech in 2 weeks time for a custom map with as many mods as any stage 2 I know of so I'm hoping to get close to 300bhp on a stock K04.
    Yeah me n Tom and Josh (when he was still local) have hjad quite alot of fun tinkering with our cars over the summer and have learnt a hell of alot.

    I used your build thread as a guide for my car and think i have done really well as have managed to go to stage 2 from stage 1 for about £700

    Am sure you will hit the 300bhp mark as we know the mingers are pretty quick lol.

    FMIC fitted :)

    I can't see your sig at the moment as I'm using tapatalk on my iPhone

    Bloody good going on stage 1 software. Mine is making that g/s on stage 2 with a large port head.

    You might want to start logging your injectors with a g/s reading like that as mine were running at 130% on a 3 bar fuel pressure regulator. I started using a 4 bar regulator that brought them down to 90%. Rtech will be mapping in some nice Bosch 550cc injectors for me to be safe. Don't want to be runnin lean bud

    Hi Rob,
    great looking install, good for those who intend to stay with the stock K04.
    Can you list the pipes you used ? Also where did you source the bracket from ?
    Cheers

    Thanks

    The credit for the pipework needed goes to Tom (future on here) as he basically was my fmic guru but its also listed in the fmic sticky its just a long read

    I used :

    4 x 90 degree silicone bends (i went for 63mm pipe work as theats the same as the OEM setup)
    2 x 90 degree alloy bends with beaded edges
    1 x alloy joiner
    10 x jubilee clips 55 -70 mm

    you use 2 x silicon and 1 alloy on each side and the alloy joiner is used on the drivers siade of the car to marry up the pipes.


    The bracket i made using 2 x steel plates i drilled 2 holes in each and Tom used washers to space out the bolts (i found i my dads garage) so the cooler sat at the right height. We then drilled holes in the crash bar (its hollow aluminium) and used loger bolts to secure it.

    I used an angle grinder to trim the edge off the crash bar so the beack can sit flush with it. ik also used it to trim the plastic behind the bumper near the raditor pipes as this meant the pipework for the cooler could sit furthur back aloowing the bumper to fit better.

    The horn and temp sensor were relocated to the passenger side wing where the smic was and i used one of the smic mounting points to fit it too and then cable tied it for good measure. i cable tied the temp sensor to the crash bar.

    Oh and a word of caution if yours is anything like my car there was quite alot of oil in the old smics and pipework so it does get a bit messy and some of the bolts to remove the old kit were a bit of an arse to get to on my post facelioft bam car.
