Coop1103,

Easy Fix

The coupler is too far on the inlet. Slide the silicone coupler back to the turbocharger and clamp it to the compressor housing with the clamps provided. The other end of the coupler should be exactly 1" onto the turbo inlet. Enough room to fit the 1/2" worm clamp.

Also, do not bolt the inlet down to the intake manifold until everything is connected on the "tail end" of the inlet.

Like stated above this Piece of Pipe is a real bastard, it sucks in everyway as far as fitment. Yes it works great but PITA to make it work.

Issues that i found on this pipe when i installed it on 2006 sti are:

-Turbo inlet coupler/silicone is too short and not enough room to get the clamp on properly, it is also being pushed onto by TGV corner and a breather hose that doesnt allow for easy install.
-It also hits another TGV corner closer to the front of the engine and makes it hard for intake manifold to sit in place.
-the hole that pipe bolts to the intake manifold is way off and has to be cut to fit the manifold in place
-the nipples are also misplaced and makes it hard for the Purge valve hose to connect to it because manifold hits it
-the dents that are in AMR pipe have no real affect on 2006 as they are in wrong spots. they really dont help clear power steering banjo bolt or any other.

Overall it is a real bastard pipe to install gains are minimal as i had it dynoed before and after and had no gains. and i am running DOM 3 XTR with 2.5 inch inlet

TIP for others concerned stick with the stock pipe its not that bad and it wont collapse as others exaggerate. i would say you can run up to 450WHP with stock pipe

if anyone wants pictures of the spots that have issues due to poor engineering let me know

Dude, seriously you need to take it to a professional shop. My buddy had his 2006 STi worked on at a shop in ohio and they installed the AMR turbo inlet because the perrin was clapsing. It fits like a glove. I will get a picture from him on his engine bay to show you.

I also guess all of the pictures on page 4 of the different years installed are all wrong as well.

Some people should spend the extra money and pay to get it installed.

I always do this as well. I remember when I had my mustang and I was installing an edelbrock manifold. The wholes were not lining up at all. Instead of posting on the forums and burning bridges, I called them up and they told me verbaly step by step what I was doing wrong. A ten minute phone conversation made the install 1/3 of the time then i already spent.

I would love to see the shop fit this in there like glove without any issues or hard time. Its not happening, and you really have no room to talk unless you been there and done it. This is my observation to others that are concerned of possible issues that they will run into. Take it for what its worth
