FMIC Piping.
« on: April 19, 2012, 11:47:20 PM »
Hay guys posting to get some information for a friend.

He has just taken his car to get tuned, and the tuner tells him he wont tune the car unless he gets beads on his piping. The didnt say anything when they seen the car before, but when he took the car in they said he had to get the piping done which would cost 700-900$ and then they said he wouldnt be able to get the power figure they told him previously. It kind of sounds sketchy to me so i was just wondering if he could DIY the piping beads or if someone knows a plce to get it done cheaper. Also does anyone know of some extra strong clamps for piping? I seen someone post it on here before but it was a while ago.

Nissan Pulsar - SR20DET car was meant to make 220-250kw.

They stop the intake hoses popping off (stock intakepiping has them) when boost level is raised. Intake hose clamps need something to grip against. There's a tool to do this (forget name) and most who fabricate stuff have it. Another way is to weld a ridge onto intake piping if don't have access to that tool. Could buy intake piping kit with beads, joiners, bolt style intake hose clamps for $200-300 and modify to suit.

Or buy intercooler piping with beads on them.

Joe Kyle (Joes Mechanical) has a tool for putting the flange on intercooler piping.
