Sounds like it is spot on, but I can't find much on the 05 version. Sent a PM to ETS so hopefully they are quick to respond.

Looking at the picture they posted on NASIOC, the stock rubber will fit around the IC, but it will probably completely fold over to make the seal. If they get back with me today, I'll probably order today.

Bought the ETS anodized in black. Now I need to pick up some T-bolt clamps and a 90 degree hose. I will likely replace the IC to TB hose too. Stock always seemed short.

I had to go with a Pegasus racing hump-hose to get my TMIC to TB hose to fit securely.

I'm just going to order a longer hose. I don't like the hump hoses at all.

Default Re: yamahaSHO - Now with MOAR 20G!

Got my ETS TMIC in the mail today. I am waiting on new hoses and clamps, however, so far it seems to fit better than stock. I say that because with the new turbo (Blouch 20G), the upper water pipe would contact the stocker and would not allow me to mount it. I was sourcing parts to be able to make a custom adjustable water line, but I dropped the new intercooler in and tilted it down and it did not make contact with the water pipe.

Build quality looks great and I even had ETS put some extra support on the mounting tabs just in case... I'll know better about fitment when my hoses an clamps are in, but currently I am pretty excited about this!

I did find one small scratch up front that happened after anodizing. Given that this is a car part that will likely be handled fairy often, it's not a huge deal... Nothing my anodizing pen couldn't fix (black Sharpie ).







I'll be painting the "STi" logo on in red.



My new GFB BOV/BPV comes in tomorrow and it looks like I won't be able to use the studs . Oh well, no biggie.

Default Re: yamahaSHO - Received an ETS TMIC!

I may have spoken to soon on the ETS fitment. Although the core and it's shape fit well, the mounting tabs don't line up with my brackets while keeping the outlet center with the throttle body. The passenger side also sits lower than the drivers side. The outlet may also need raised.

I've been e-mailing ETS about the issue, so I'll update on the outcome.

Default Re: yamahaSHO - Received an ETS TMIC!

It happens. I was a bit worried about being one of the first to buy because of this, but ETS is being very helpful and I just fired off a bunch of pictures like they asked. I'm one of those guys that wants perfect, clean, OEM-like fitment when I build cars.

Default Re: yamahaSHO - Received an ETS TMIC!

I always knew I was anal with cars, but apparently it's handy. My not wanting to man-handle the IC to get it to fit was enough for ETS to take a look at their jig for the pre-08 models where they found the tab locations to be a little off.

ETS sent me a shipping label to get the IC back to fix it. They'll move the brackets and re-anodize it. So far, ETS has given me the best customer service I think I've ever had on anything. I let them know I was a little nervous about modifying my current IC and they assured me it would look just like it does now, but with the tabs in the correct location.
