    GI FMIC piping test kit

    If you have an FMIC and DeJon turbo intake pipes, there is not a really good way to test for boost leaks. I have come up with a design that allows hooking up to the two intake pipes (the DeJon's are 2 3/4") with adapters and a regulator that allows hooking up your air compressor to the regulator, adjusting the pressure to whatever you want to test at, then using a soap/water mixture to test all your fittings/connections while the car is stationary and the engine isn't running. You can repair any leaks and re-test immediately. This kit cost me just under $95 to make. It isn't cheap, but it will allow static testing of the ENTIRE system and absolutely find any and all boost leaks. If there is enough interest (as in 5 or more buyers who will send a deposit of $40), I think I can sell the kit for $85 plus shipping (shipping should be $11.40 to the 50 states by USPS Priority Flat Rate). Also, this kit is the prototype. Production kits would be better in appearance. It is also possible the adapters could be made in other diameters besides 2 3/4". PayPal is milton_goldin@hotmail.com.
    Thanks.







    The adapters are not bead rolled, but I assembled mine with weatherstrip adhesive (yellow sticky stuff) and then leak tested them to 40psi with no leaks.
