    Sorry folks, it's a no go, unless you shim stuff.

    Firewall mount clearance is fine (sitting on the tophat shaped grommet retainer thing (essentially sitting on the mount):

    At the rail, though, on the passenger side; it's the mounting bracket holding up the TMIC at this point, which is why it's not touching the rail:

    And driver's side:

    Might as well be at the club, grindin'.

    How bad is it?

    Passenger side:

    Driver's side:

    I'd say about a quarter inch or so; *probably* safe to shim, but would reduce flow to the TMIC as a result (if the shroud even allows for that much shimming -- not sure on that).

    Side note: I didn't bother to test my CPE TMIC because it's even taller and runs even closer to the intake mani / valve cover

    if someone has a CPE TMIC installed we can compare measurements.

    What injector length is that rail setup for? 34 or 48mm?
    Perhaps the extra bosses CS had to add to have material to machine for the port injectors is eating up too much real estate.

    Considering the TMIC is riding on the brackets, I'm using the 40mm (lower of the two) rail mounting points.

    Thats too bad, I think most people generally run the ID1050Xs at 48mm, I was hoping a set of 34mm would free up enough real estate. Damn!

    I have a CPE TMIC installed, what measurement are you looking for?

    Damn, totally forgot about this.

    Distance between bottom of TMIC (just forward of coilpacks) and valve cover.

    Pics above are with a CS TMIC. Stocker will probably fit, so if you wanted to shoot for 400 WHP you could probably staple two stockers together side by side...but you wouldn't really need PI for that, and two stockers likely won't get you much north of 400-450.

    Just wanted to identify what was in the pictures.
    I feel like this might work on Gen two

    on my car i have just under 40mm between the bottom of the intercooler and the valve cover.

    CPE Gen2 TMIC with MS6 elbow if that makes a difference.
