    Fitting Pace FMIC

    Just acquired one of the Pace FMIC kits.

    I know its specifically designed for the Astra turbos but was wondering if anyone has experience of fitting one of these or knows much about fitting these?
    From all the blurb it looks like it should be a relatively easy fit but does anything need jigging about, trimming off etc bumper or anything else wise?

    Cheers

    As above it's a very simple fitting. Taking off the bumper and the connection for the fan are about as hard as it gets.

    hardest bit, imo was cutting of the left boost pipe and fitting it to the lower left of the IC as the standard pipe seems to be triangle on that corner. Bit of a pain but it went
