Ok, so after some discussions with my supplier about the parts I think I came up with a setup that will probably work on the v turbo.

It would be a one side in and out style intercooler to keep the piping near stock length but would have quite a bigger core size than stock and would be less prone to heat soak by being nearer to the engine bay.

The kit would use a greddy or hks style bov flang and would come with either style bov..

The kit would be complete and ready to bolt on for around 550$ or so, shipped in the USA. This would include the intercooler, hardware to bolt it up, couplers, bov , bov flange welded into the piping, ports for sensors in the piping, clamps, etc.

The hardest thing to figure out will be installing the boost pressure sensor into the piping as I don't have access to any aluminum welding equipment. I may be able to find a way to salvage the stock connection and use it that way.

Just wanting to see if there is any real interest because this would be quite the time and money investment for me to take on if there are not many people interested in actually buying it when it is completed.

I would be interested but don't they have one already? I thought I saw a FMIC setup on a VT from Korea.

The one from the daum website? Good luck getting more information on it.. I don't even know if it is something planned to be mass produced or not. Also, I would be willing to bet any other full FMIC kits WITH a BOV and everything you need would be under ~800$.

I might be, If you do one for your car can you make the ones you'd sell at the same time?

Also could we choose the coupler colors?

I'd like to get yellow to match my calipers

And what core brand would you be using?

Would only be able to choose black or blue couplers.

I have not chosen a core brand yet. Iam probably going to be using cores from one of my suppliers which have done me very well in the past. They are a great value and work very well.

Doesn't seem to be as much interest as I would have thought in the fmic setup.

I got with my supplier the other day and for a price they are willing to make a custom pipe for the veloster to connect the bov and the boost pressure sensor to.

I did a little pred design yesterday and this all looks very feasible.i am excited to do this but will need some more interest to get the custom pipes made as the minimum order on a custom pipe is ten pieces.

It looks like the pipe length will remain quite close to the same as stock while upgrading the intercooler core significantly. This will mean much better cooling ability with little to no more lag from the turbo.

I would like to start this soon but it will all come down to getting a few serious buyers before I can invest the time/money to do it.

It would be the first v turbo kit acute ally available for purchase and I could guarentee that it would be the cheapest by far for quite some time.

This would come with everything you need for right around 550$ shipped to your door ( in the states )

I would defintely be interested if i cant get a tune done soon. Im trying on getting MASE to do something for the VTs. If anyone knows of MASE Engineering he tuned my 450hp Integra and he is well known around the world for tuning.

He is also well known for leaving people hanging. He did half a tune on my supercharged S. I waited for over a month for him to get back to me. He finally ended up refunding my money. I would go with Evan's Tuning. Stand up guy and great tuner. Also world known.

Looking at early November for the mock up and production to start on these kits. Will be getting a group buy going for 550$ shipped in the USA or so it looks like.

Price will include a medium-high density bar and plate intercooler, all mounting hardware, couplers, clamps, piping and the blow off valve kit as well as the flange to mount the bps to the piping.

The kit should make a world of difference in the heat soak department and should also offer more cooling efficiency (closer to ambient intake temp)

Will have more information soon and hopefully some testing results.

Nope, it will be a greddy or hks flange.

$550 sounds a lot better than other guys $850...

in korea they put a shield next to where the condensor ends to draw more air into the condensor/radiator instead of going in through the opening where the IC used to be... smart move.

I'm 100% interested, specially for around that price.

the factory intercooler and BPV will be scrapped.

There wont be much money savings by keeping the stock flange, would actually cost more. No one would keep the stock rubber/stamped steel BPV on an aftermarket FMIC kit, I would hope anyway.. And the only BOV option would be the forge which isn't exactly cheap (165$)

I will mention the little metal piece. I saw it in the pictures but I don't see it providing much help to that area. I will look into it though.

It wouldn't be that big but it would be pretty good sized and more than enough to allow for an upgraded turbo.

The cooler core I have been looking at is 22"x8"x3.5". The intlet and outlet are side exit on the same side of the cooler. The end tank design looks decent and should work especially well considering the in/out design. Looking at possibly dropping it down to a 3" core if we can since 3.5" is a bit much.

The reasoning for the in/out being the same side is to decrease piping length as the stock pipes enter the same side. If you look at the couple kits from korea, they have about 3-5' more piping that really needed. This will be not so great for lag and they still use big cores which also have a lot of volume. If you are going to increase the volume of the system more than you need to, it should be in the core in my opinion as you will get cooling efficiency in return. With more than needed piping, you aren't getting any benefits.

165 is cheaper then a GOOD aftermarket bov

what makes a 'good' BOV? a brand name?

I've personally run knock off HKS and Greddy BOVs on previous vehicles and every one of my customers for the tiburon turbo kits ran knock off greddys, megan racing or similar, none with any issues.

the only reason I went with forge is the fact of space issues.. Otherwise I would have went with an HKS adapter and a fake HKS.
