So I picked up a FMIC, but need to do the plumbing on it. I've read you need to clock the turbo down to make things easy and I know I've come across a thread with pics of a FMIC all plumbed up, can anyone give me a hand on the link or any info?
Thanks!

There's many ways you can route the piping without clocking the turbo down. http://www.celicatech.com/forums/showthread.php?9361-FMIC-pipuing-setup.-*pics-only-wanted*

Please clock the turbo.. Its looks 10X cleaner and isn't that much more work..

You could check out RyanD's thread on his engine swap, helped me quite a bit.

Just ordered a front mount the other day so ill be in the same boat in a few weeks.

You can reduce the length of charge pipe greatly by using a FMIC with rear facing inlet/outlet. It's less headache than rotating the turbo and I would bet that you'll use less charge pipe.

This is the setup I am using.

Yep, check RyanD's thread. We did his fairly painlessly.
