Exclamation GReddy SMIC Install

Attached is the ENGLISH instructions for the GReddy SMIC.

You can't download this from their site, I had to fax a receipt to prove that I bought this. I think that's BS considering you can download some of their other products (english versions).

This was archived via WinRAR & changed the extension to ZIP so I could post the file (220kb).

btw, how is the Greddy SMIC, seems like a convenient choice since you do not need to relocate your battery, but is it an wise choice for cars putting out close to 350+ hp?

The ZIPs are coming in as "bad archive" for me. If you want, I'll be happy to convert the document to an Adobe Acrobat PDF for you - PM me if you're interested.

You need to rename the files .rar then use WinRar to extract it. It's one file broken down into 3 rar files.
It's already a pdf file. If you want I can email you the unbroken uncompressed version.

Installation is not easy if you have a stock airbox, and full size battery. With both of those, it is a very tight fit, and not a simple installation.

Yeah, I had to do a little bit of trimming here and there for it to properly sit.

It definitely takes some patience. I found that you need to install the IC first, and then leave the couplers loose so that you can move it slightly if needed. Grease the inside of the couplers before installation so that they slide togther (and can be adjusted) easier. I had to elongate the holes in my stock battery tray (when I had it) to enable it to slide over a bit in order to get enough clearance on that side. Then install the airbox last. It's definitely a tight fit.

Just a small note, the Greddy SMIC does not come with a Greddy elbow, so the top coupling setup is slightly different than the one in the photo...

The 2 and 3 piece piping should fit. If you only get the throttle elbow then you will need to fab up additional piping.

Thanks for the instructions! I installed mine without the instructions the other day.

I had to get a smaller battery (51R) to install this with my stock airbox. Even then its a tight fit. I slid the SMIC over towards the battery box to avoid it rubbing on the upper radiator hose. Does anyone else's SMIC rub on that hose? I couldnt use the cold air snorkel for the stock air box (large black rectangle held by 2 10mm bolts) with this intercooler. I need to mess with it some more and see if I can position it differently somehow.

This intercooler is definitely not a bolt on affair for those of us who run a full sized battery with the stock airbox.

I had the 3 peice pipe kit and they fit well. I beleive the left side was slightly lower then the right and I used washers or something to even out the hight. It was too long ago to remeber but the pipes were not the issue. That sheild does cover the square hole over the top of the stock duct when you remove the stock cover if not using the stock intake box. It doesn't seal it though, so I used a square aluminum peices and gasket sealer.

Stock mounts do get hot driving in the city with the oem non vented hood. Mazda should have put a small fan behind it.
