Okay, so today I was given a FMIC for $100... I know, VERY cheap. I was told it was a TurboXS, though the seller was unsure and so am I, still, it's in great shape for the price! Now whether or not I'm keeping this for my WRX (whenever I go bigger turbo) or reselling it, is irrelevant, for the price, I had to jump on it. My questions are more related to what I actually have here.
As you can see in the picture. I have the IC, the piping, the hoses and a smaller coolant reservoir. Now aside from hose clamps and mounting brackets for IC and the coolant reservoir, what am I missing?
I'm assuming I'll need an adapter for a stock BPV to mount to the intercooler piping. I see the hole for a BPV or BOV, but I don't see a way to mount one without some sort of adapter. Any knowledge on this?
My second question is in regard to what I'm assuming is a hose for the IC piping to Throttle body. The hose seems to be bigger on 1 end than the other. The weird part is that the hose on one end is only like 1/4" bigger than the other end. Can I just use a standard throttle body hose? (I believe they're 3" right?) The reason I'm asking is because this hose looks like **** and It's a hard rubber which I can predict will crack eventually. I'd prefer a silicone rubber similar to what the rest of the hoses are made out of. But I'm not sure if a standard Throttle body hose will work. Any input on this?
So those are my questions so far. Any input on what I have / need here would be appreciated!
