@moto-mike updated my tune for the "coldfix" and it definitely helps. My car starts much quicker in the cold and I haven't "hit a wall" at 4500 RPM with the new tune. I did encounter that issue before the fix

I have to say mike put up with a lot of my crap. He worked very hard and was always quick to respond and always offered a solution to any problem I had , even if it wasn't anything he had control over.

Hey guys,

Almost done with my install but I did have a few questions!

On my BRZ there is an airbag sensor in the way when I install the cooler. What did everyone do with this?

Also, the diagram in the pic for installing the "T" to the brake booster line is so hard to see! What hose should I actually be cutting for this? I am too scared to do it incase it is the wrong one.

Everything else seems pretty straight forward. I am also worried about the oil cooler falling off with those wedge clips. Has anyone had any issues with this?

Have my tuning appointment and new clutch/injectors going in Monday @ PTuning. Definitely excited!

Thanks all!

Look at the installation instructions for the KW oil cooler if you want a more robust mount for your rotrex cooler.

The line going to the brake booster....

Hey thanks for the reply.

I actually went through the instructions and figured it all out. I think I was just getting tired and needed to take a break and look at it all again.

Andddd that was the secondary horn so I just zip tied it down pretty good.

Just gotta prime it and she is doneeee. Thanks!

Have had my kit for 4 weeks and already the hex bolts on the supercharger are rusting. Looks like they're mild steel. Did I get a dodgy batch of bolts or is this standard?

No big deal, I'll jsut clean them off and spray them with some VHT. paint.

Just got done with my install yesterday and so far LOVING the changes. The install went smooth until we got to priming the SC. The install took a while because we were getting confused as we were cranking because the oil wasn't feeding, it doesn't help that the battery started to die. We ended up putting everything on just enough to start the car until we saw fluid at the oil in side of the SC. After that everything went good! The instructions kind of suck in some spots though. Overall I'm very happy with the outcome.

I have the C30 blower tuned by @DeliciousTuning. No dyno numbers yet but that will come soon.

AND I LOVE THE WAY IT LOOKS AND SOUNDS. I smile whenever I drive it now haha.

I have two spare belts if anyone is interested - one is brand new and one has ~5,000 miles on it. These are the original belt size for the C30 kit. I removed it when I upgraded to the newer/larger pulleys.

Spare/new belt was $75 (now $71) -
Amazon.com: Gates K060815RB V-Belt: Automotive Amazon.com: Gates K060815RB V-Belt: Automotive

How about both for $50 shipped - 67% cheaper than new!

I apologize in advance if it's not appropriate to post this here but figured it's only relevant to this group

That sounds more like a security/immobilizer problem. Frs or brz
