    should of smashed more boost into her Joe...seriously though 1000 rpm earlier must be way better drive now.

    E42.5..

    I'd say it picked up 1000rpm and the 60nm by the E85 mix + TMIC.

    It made no less HP than the FMIC setup with the TMIC, and picked up 60nm.. I'd say it was fairly successful, even though it wasn't the 370-380 I was chasing. I think it was more a case of wishful thinking, after seeing what the Nissan boys were picking up with E85.

    1000 rpm purely by going from FMIC to top mount?

    Probably not the result I was after, but we're putting it down to a tired turbo.. 30,000km with 1.6 bar isn't too bad.

    Originally it made 352 and 430, the last touch up tune we did made 320hp and 370nm.. but it felt just as strong.

    Today it also made 320hp and went back to 430nm.. but feels stronger than it ever has!! It also comes on 1000rpm earlier

    So in that regard, its a success!

    Not sure about the figures and why they vary so much tune to tune, but the car has never felt quicker.. so I'm happy!

    Next stop.. CBRD Speedfactory TD06 twin scroll.

    She's ALIVE

    Took it for a GENTLE drive to get the old fuel out of it, seems to have changed engine note significantly.. turbo spools louder and it sounds quite aggressive. Either that, or it could be because I haven't driven it for 2 months and I simply forgot what it sounded like before

    Update.. did you hear it idling from your place tonight Dave??

    I fitted the TMIC and fired her up, but I put the bracket on backwards and the cooler was on the piss.. so it had to come back off.

    What a c@#% of a thing to install, lining up the two silicone joiners is a pain.. not looking forward to re-installing it!

    Almost there.. so close!

    Picked this up today too

    update, did you find another 2-3 solid hours this weekend Joe ?

    Almost there!

    - Guard liners and bumper fitted.. waiting for JDM reo bar to arrive before I go and pick up my brand new front bumper and have it sprayed. For now, the dodgy chopped up bumper will have to do.

    - New clips purchased for headlights, grille and bumper.. again, won't be fitted until I get all the new parts as above.

    - Catch can hoses have been replaced and re-routed to eliminate PCV valve, and catch can re-mounted.

    I've test fitted TMIC a few times, and started making a bracket to suit.. as seen below (sorry about the dodgy spec phone photo, I posted it just for reference). It goes to show how much wider the new TMIC is than an ordinary Spec C TMIC, which utilises the left-most bolt in the photo. The 08 STi TMIC requires an extension to be made, to get it to fit.

    I also had to bend the clutch master cylinder reservoir bracket to the left, to clear the corner of the TMIC.



    To finish off the project:

    - I need to grind and smooth the edges now and that bracket will be finished.

    - The silicone coupler I bought for TMIC to throttle body connection is about 1cm too long and will have to be trimmed down too.

    - Picking up my STi IC splitter tomorrow, which bolts in under the scoop and directs air to the cooler. It will need modding to completely cover the new TMIC. It comes with nozzle and hoses for water spray, which is a bonus.

    - Need to drill a 2nd 20mm hole in my washer bottle to run a high pressure intercooler spray pump, which is managed by the Cusco water spray controller I mentioned a few pages back.

    - The rubber hose at the bottom left of the picture above, needs to be trimmed and re-run as it sits against the TMIC too (its tucked out of the way on the left of the master cylinder for the time being but can't stay that way).

    - Sensors, lines and other items which were disconnected (including the throttle cable) need to be re-connected to finish the job too.

    Getting there!! Another 2-3 solid hours of work and she'll be sweet

    Absolutely.. diff will be going in after tune, it just saves headaches should the Dynapack flip out with the Tarmac Gear installed.

    Definitely no hard parking

    - Catch can lines have been re-run and catch can re-mounted.
    - Bumper, headlights and liners are all fitted, although these will have to be re-done when the new bumper beam arrives (as the ballasts will mount to it).

    Just need to wire in water spray, put IC on and make a bracket somehow.. then its finished for now!

    Very well thought out and descriptive write up as usual Joe, lots of new shiny bits to keep you eager as well.

    Looking forward to seeing this on the track and the smile on your face after doing it
