    1g FP Race Manifold J Pipe Clearance Issue

    Installed the FP race mani tonight. I noticed that when it was all bolted up, the J pipe is touching the manifold pretty good. Theres no gap in between the two. Just wondering if anyone else had this issue after installing an FP mani. And if someone has a stock DSM turbo set up and the FP with no clearance issues, what brand of J pipe is being used? Thanks for any advice in advance!

    *Running a JDM FMIC* Don't know the brand of J pipe (coming off an ebay 16G)

    I have seen a TON of different angles with these j pipes. It seems as though every maker uses a different angle. Its kind of a pain in the behind.

    But since you are running an fp mani I would say fp should be the golden ticket.
    Can you take a picture of the one you have and post it? Also a pic installed would be good if you can swing that.

    I would just dimple the j-pipe a bit to allow clearance as it's not going to effect flow in the slightest.

    You can order online or go to any auto store and buy "cool tape" It comes in silver or a goldish color.

    I wrapped my j-pipe because it was very close to my exhaust mani. I also wrapped the lower pipe close to the down pipe. This may also help you out a tad.

    Does "cool tape" serve two purposes? Affectively lowering temperatures and looking better? If so it may be worth a try.

    Yes its heat reflective, Ive used it on coolant lines and hard piping. I cant logg the difference in air intake temp, but Im sure it has improved.

    My intercooler piping is always hot to the touch after spirited driving, so anything helps.
