    Poor fitment with my TMIC

    So I have a Perrin TMIC and I love how large of a core it has but it has always been offset where the outlet of the TMIC and the TB meet up. The outlet on the TMIC is a bit higher than the TB and it causes my couplings go stretch and become warped. Any advice?

    Hmm. I have the Perrin TMIC as well w/Blouch 18G and no fitment issues. Did you change the Intercooler Hoses or are you still using stock? B/c a longer TB coupler is pretty much a must.

    Mine is installed with the Perrin Hose kit and is a perfect fit.

    Yeah I am using a Perrin Y-pipe. I think that I might need to alter the brackets a little.

    Also look into a longer Samco coupling. I had this issue with an SSAC TMIC I bought...longer coupling helped
