Wow, if had the money ($350 !) and no dual catch-cans already I would get this Moroso set-up, no rice clear tubing level, accessible to replace/inspect filtering media, short/compact.

http://www.moroso.com/catalog/images/85510_inst.pdf

Anybody know where to source the 90 deg elbow drains? It is a pita with my setup.

These guys seem to have whatever I'm looking for:
McMaster-Carr
Might take a little digging but I'm guessing they might have it.

That looks like stuff you could find at a dedicated plumbing/hardware store.

Clamps, bends, ball valves, ect.

There are a number of us in Europe that are very interested in hearing the results of this. :)

What we wonder is if the Kinugawa turbo is good value so hurry up with the install. ;)

Cheers,
Patrick

Pretty sure Fuji-k has run one of these turbos for a while - dyno vid


He has a vid of this wagon running an 11.7 1/4 mile somewhere on youtube...

Doing my best as of this morning, intake manifold out , 4 days of tears, blood, broken back, as another Nasioer would say, I'm too now going to jump off a bridge, this part makes me wish I was never born, f u Mr. Manifold.

That little snail in the background is getting yanked out pronto, long 4-day Thanksgiving Break starting tomorrow FTW.



Fuji K was pivotal on my decision to go with this turbo, we exchanged a couple of PMs over Nasioc. Below his 11s 1/4 mile pass, E85 though.

Default Ordered 2008 STI TMIC

I abandoned plans to get the Process West (not related to cost) and ordered a 08/12 STI TMIC, 16% more cubic inches than the 04/07 STi TMIC.

Cubic Inches Comparo
08/12 STI (426ci)
04/07 STi (368ci)


Plus this new design incorporates the rear tank cavity of the JDM Spec C version which improves flow as isolates the inlets.




I got this splitter from Amazon, designed for the 02/03 JDM STi scoop, the rubber seal will allow to cover the larger area of the '08 STi TMIC with minor modifications.

^Cost is approx $500 shipped, ordered mine thru Annapolis Jackie.

[URL="http://www.subaruforester.org/vbulletin/f65/2011-sti-tmic-97401/#post1058779"]Haha, I guess other people share my preference for 08+ STI ICs vs aftermarket Aluminum chunks with welded tanks./URL].

Also, more info on the rear tank cast X:

This gives basically the same overall volume of the GD (ie throttle response and pressure loss) while eliminating the dead space from the larger core thus separating the two branches of the Y-pipe. There has been a resurgence on NASIOC on the STI and the 08+ TMIC's. Some have even ventured to call the 08+ an OEM spearco, while I won't go that far it will safely support 400+whp. Like Legacy I have been running mine without a passenger side support for well over a year now with no ill effects. Long story short...............bump for GREAT intercooler and one that was actually engineered instead of a huge core with some end tanks welded on.

Thanks for the catch can pics i am mounting my modified ebay catch cans in the front passenger by the intake. So you have one for your pvc and one for the crank case are you routing them back into the inlet? If so are you using a filtering media, i think im going to use a body lufa as my filter? Also you will be glad you got the inlet befor the install because i ripped mine big time trying to install the turbo. Now the turbo is in im just waiting for the inlet to button it up should be here next wednesday.

Nice work David!

As far as the PM goes I am sorry I did not get back with you yet. Basically all you need is a piece of 1" widex 0.25" thick by 4" length aluminum bar stock. Then mount it to the oem tmic mount and make slight bends until it lines up with the 08+ tmic passenger side bracket.

^Thanks man, I ended getting the actual '08+ OEM third bracket that mounts to our passenger side bracket, pictured below on +08 STi. Did you use the +08 STI cast aluminum y-pipe? Which elbow??

Looking at pic below I may swap the A/C line to STI lines to clear the IC, not a fan of slit hose fix.





On other news not much to report, have been struggling with TGV deletes, finding what works and what doesn't, that is the most consuming part, finding the right tools: tree shaped double cut die grinder carbide tool (not pictured), finish with 60,80,120 flap sanding wheels, not done yet, will post pics of finished product.





Removed parts table is getting full.

Looks like things are moving along, keep it going! Hopefully you don't need another table...
