hey there... since my name is in here I may want to speak up huh?

My advice is quite simple... make sure you get a large core that you KNOW is good. Then if you have end tanks to prefab, I would suggest getting thin metal (not alum) and cutting it and using magnets or a temporary adhesive to hold them together for fitting. take those pieces to a good metal fabricator to get them cut in aluminum... make it decently thick if you are going to be running anything close to 2 Bar.

Remember that with aluminum (which most IC's are made of) you have to use aluminum. and that means you have to use TIG or be really really good at MIG.

I ended up having to take mine off and get if rewelded... I should have full pics up next week of the 2" IC pipes, the FMIC, and other fun stuff.

Also... I am still working on getting a reliable source for FMIC cores... once that happens... I'll be selling FMIC's for as close to $1000 as I can. Which should be 1000 or less :)

do I make mounting brackets... yes... that is among the pics that I am going to take when I get the car up later this week.

They aren't gonna be expensive- but I want guys to see what I am talking about.

Also we are still working on the mounts, I had only a small inconvience on mine- I needed to find a lathe and someone to buy me a press for Christmas (not really :) ) anyway, those are back on track.

Also I haven't forgotten about the TD05 14B adapter plates... I am working on those too.

Only problem is the constant going out of state/country crap that pops up a day before I leave - FOR A MONTH!!! Grr...

it's coming... I promise.

And Apexi Cores? Hmmm... I gotta find the dimentions and flow.

here

Its the GTR COre, biggest apex makes, you can find the exact specs on their site(531-A020 GTR I/C Core 2 (24"L X 10.8"H X 3"W) )and this is bi far the best flowing core there is, if you have seen an apexi in person and the size+shape of its runners you know what i'm talking about. I'll get you the price on a split sec cause i'm not at work now so i don't have my price list retail is $785
