    Well 1st ring LMF as they do a pipe that gets you from the bottom of the power pipe down to level with the inlet of the FMIC. Then you will just need x2 elbows and a bit of pipe from there. I think its from the Pace IC and comes with a sensor mount. About £80.
    Then you will need x3 elbows and x2 bits of pipe to get you from the other side of the FMIC to the turbo.

    I havnt actually fitted mine yet as im still waiting for my hoses to arrive but from my research u think this is the best combo.

    I done mine yesterday........what can i say! lol.....it was fun!

    I got all new hoses for the outlet side but on the inlet I used a 60-51mm reducing elbow and cut the standard pipe on the bend.

    I managed to move the radiator back abit but couldnt for the life of me see how your supposed to turn the fan....there was no way of re-attaching it.

    At the bottom theres a bracket which attaches it with two bolts...I undid these and moved it back so the front bolt hole lined up with the back hole.....this gave a few mm.

    I also found where its attached at the top and put a few washers in between the bracket and framework to set it back a couple of mm.

    If anybody wants to explain how to rotate the fan it would be greatly appreciated.

    Well i have ordered mine in 57mm. Im going to warm them up for any larger bores (inlet & outlet of IC) and clamp them down for the smaller bits of coupling pipework.

    That pace pipe sounds like a good idea. I already ordered my pipes then found out about it otherwise i would have got one!.
