    The FMIC manufacturer should include the instructions. As already noted the actual FMIC would need to be known in order to help you as they don't all fit/install the same.

    I hope the mod list on your page is severely outdated.

    I think the general consensus is that the godspeed kit is ebay garbage and it's probably no wonder you're having problems. I doubt any instructions exist, because I doubt the kit will even fit properly on your car. My recommendation? Get rid of that crap and buy yourself a decent TMIC... you'll improve your performance anyhow.

    You have the option of selling. I'm telling you... if the mod list in your profile is accurate, then IMO you will have a larger performance gain switching to a quality TMIC. Read the following:

    Well I have most of the piping on just need to go to the store today after work get some more clamps and silicone connectors. I also need to figure out how to mount the intercooler in the front. Does the front bumper support need to be removed? Thanks

    The OE beam needs to be removed/replaced (if the kit included one) or modified
