Do you still use a Y-Pipe?? or does it change over to an intake with just one pipe.. cause I'm sure there's only one pipe going from the FMIC to the plenum?

Also, does the FMIC block the radiator at all??

No Y-Pipe, the two lines from the turbo's go directly into the end tank on one side of the Intercooler, then out the other, one pipe goes out, and up to your Throttle Body.
Fmic, does not really block the radiator.. as long as there is room between the Intercooler, and the radiator, you will not be hurting your cooling affects.

No y-pipe needed for the FMIC. 2" piping from two turbos to the IC endtank then 3" pipe all the way to the throttle body.
It actually block the radiator and AC core. A good IC core wouldn't hurt the coolant temp tho.

Hey Leland

So are you turboing your car? I can't quite make up my mind on what I want to do. Built motor with n2o or light mods and factory turbos? In the long run I think they will both cost about the same. I am just more concerned with daily driving problems and complications.

I think that SnakeSkinner has a fmic on his 95 Stealth, but does the FMIC fit on a second gen Stealth or 3000GT without any mods, or is there cutting and moding needed? Does anyone know?

You almost always have to cut or remove the front crash beam. This won't hurt the car unless of course, you hit something ;)

to the best of my knowledge your airbag will stillwork, all you have to remove is the support. Your car will crumple a little more

I guess you guys are right, why would we want to live if our car was totaled.

On my 91 VR4...lost the foglights. Lost the crash bar, and pistons behind them. Had to grind down the bumper a little bit on each side. No biggie. Lost about 20 lbs total.
