Any of you Greddy FMIC guys have any tips on how to install the intercooler?
The best advise is to take your time when working on your 7. The install is not
hard at all, it's just time consuming. The instuction is in Japanese right? And it is
for the older version FMIC. Just follow the diagrams as the two versions are very much alike. The only difference is when your getting ready to mount the A/C condensor and the I/C core and brackets.
[quote]Anything I have to look out for?
Use a wire or a coat hanger to surport the A/C condensor and line. It is very prone
to damage. If you break the line, all the freon will leak out.
When trimming the bumper surport (fiberglass) use a carbon cut-off wheel from
Home Depot. Don't get any thing cheaper. They'll just break up faster. Oh, wear eye protection.
Take some measurements before you begin cutting off the sheet metal that's at the
front rt corner. It's going to look like a triangle. After you cut it, sand it down and touch it up with some paint.
When trimming the bumper skin. Always, measure before cutting. I think you'll only have to take an 1.50-1.75" or so off the sides and less than 1" off the center.
Always use new blades when trimming the skin. You'll go though a pack easy. When you're done trimming the skin,go over it with some sand paper to smooth it out
If you are going to use your stock twin turbo, you'll need two K&N filters. I don't have the part number anymore. But, they must not be any longer than 6" by 3".
I think the opening is 2.25". You might want to check on it.
You can use a different size filter if you don't have the airpump in.
Good luck, Jay
