Question Question about ETS FMIC

I want to pull the trigger on the ets unit, but I'm a little confused. The ets comes with its own charge pipe correct? Why can't I option a blow off valve when I go on any of the sites that sell them?

Do you mean lower charge piping? Or upper? If upper, get the ER pipe. In my mind it's a better product, silicone couplers can work just fine but I see no reason to ditch the C Clip.

ETS comes with the lower chargepipe and not the upper one where the blow off sits. I still think it's nice that they include an upgraded lower CP with their kit. Yes, it takes a bit longer but hey if you're going to push high boost,then it's free insurance.

the ER intercooler as 135pats mentioned comes with the upper chargepipe if you choose to have it.

ER products are currently on sale btw! I'm a PM away if you have any questions

Yep, I have the ETS FMIC connected by their pipe to my ER chargepipe. I think I still have one piece of stock pipe between, but it eliminates all of the accordion type pipe.

+1, exactly what I have too. Basically, your piping from the intercooler output to the throttle will be all metal.

Guys I just bought the cobb FMIC from another member(to good to pass up). My question is about the lower charge pipe that comes with the ETS unit, can I buy that pipe to use with the cobb? The idea of getting rid of all the plastic piping sounds smart to me.

I have the ETS pipe connected to a BMS charge pipe also with the factory "C" clip connection to the throttle body.
