If you contact Tom, 1turbo focus he will make you custom piping all the way up to your TB. He did that for me. Here is what it looks like:

Here is the FMIC with my old piping:

New piping from FMIC on up to the TB:

On to the TB with a 3" MAF and a BOV:


He did an excellent job on the piping.

Also the only difference from the SVT piping is the pipe to the TB. If I remember correctly you can use everything else but the pipe to the TB has to be different. You can also use the AEM CAI upper pipe also but I wouldn't run it like that forever. This is what it looked like when I first used my AEM CAI upper pipe:



The prob with this setup is that the MAF is too close to the bend of the pipe and Tom says you need to have the bend at least 6 inches away from the MAF.

thisdude_05, how much of the fender needs to be notched out to run piping like yours? It looks like a decent chunk was chopped out in your application to clearance the piping. I want to run my turbo piping that way, just never got a clear angle of the "notch" required for pipe fitment.

Yeah he welded a BOV flange on the piping. There is a thread somewhere on here about a blow through MAF setup which is what I have now. Read up on it. I will look around for it too. Give me a min...
