    you'll find it a hell of a lot cheaper if you go for the apex type 1 mate, these are really widely used and loads cheaper. easy to fit and can handle more horsepower than you'll need plus they come with stainless pipework not ally. they need a hole drilled in the battery tray and you can use a smaller battery from tayna.

    hope this helps

    you have to get a smaller battery (stock micra one is fine) and turn your battery 90 degrees. hole needs to be drilled to 80-90mm to battery tray, bit of triming to the end of chassis leg (not stuctural part).

    you can relocate battery to boot but requires a maintanance free race battery as fumes are a problem bringing a battert inside the car.

    mine came with a small battery luckily and is the perfect size.

    i have a copy of apex 1 intercooler instruction in my email if you want i will dig it out.

    Thanks to everyone
    Got everything that i needed to know...

    Still have few "stupid questions"
    Because I don't have such a good english in car relative things like to know what is "hotpipe" or whats the difference to normal intercooler piping?? And if some one could show from a picture it would help a lot!

    Then one another thing... I have apex avc-r and Im considering to buy Japspeed fmic-kit and like to know does it have this "plug" (in picture)


    And does it matter if I just get longer tube for that apex avc-r thing to get it on that side of pipings? If you know what I mean...

    hot pipe is the pipe running directly from your turbo.. you have to buy these as extra for any kit you buy, 45 ontop of the japspeed kit price for this... it not neccesary just blings up your engine bay!

    the other question im not following about plug?

    Sorry

    In that picture I post that "plug or connector" (i dont know better word) which is in red circle, I drew.
    That thin tube/pipe is coming from the boost controller system to that pipe... Maybe I have to wait to the next week when I get my car in my garage and show you guys better pics and explanation

    that is just the boost feed for the avcr mate - you can use a longer pipe from the plenum but the best way is to fit one of these in the hot pipe silicone hose coupling from the turbo

    Don't think it does. But I put it in the piece of silicone piping immediately before the hot pipe.
