Hoping to get more pedal feel when I remove the accumulator.
Very interested to here what it's like without the accumulator.

Did you ask KMD for the longer version of the line? If not just a heads up it may be a bit on the short side to do the accumulator delete.

Either way it's a quality piece. I've had mine on for 6 months with no leaks or issues.

I'll let you know if there is a significant difference in feel or not.

I did get a longer line for the purpose of removing the accumulator.

Awesome, Hanz and Franz!

Yeah, I actually waited about 10-11 weeks to get it. Almost filed a credit charge back against DMV since they could n't give me a straight answer on delivery time. I really enjoy having it now. To me it makes the back pop a little more with the yellow/black contrast. The R plate frame was the icing on the cake!

Will do.
According to UPS it wont arrive until next Tuesday and I probably won't start on it until sometime the following weekend.
I think Integrated's use of robust bar and fin design along with their FDS end tanks makes for a better intercooler.

The wrong part..... balls!

In process of a OEM Lighting Package Adaptive Front Lighting System retrofit. The rear level sensor should come with two plates, but this is a part to replace broken rear sensor without one plate. Ordered complete part, but it is a 15 day set-back.

AMS is/was huge in the Evo market. Now they've moved into Nissan GTR, Porsche and other high end markets, but decided to start developing parts for the R and the Focus RS to get back into their roots.

I paid $849.00 for the non-catted version of their downpipe.

Do you have a guide you are following for the retrofit? Or are you blazing new trails? If the latter, be sure you post a build or how to thread if you get it all working, please.

I got mine installed without cats on October...sounds good ...not to loud at all just once you switch on the car it's little on the higher end but after a min or two it goes back to idle.

Went from stock to stage 2+ the difference is huge...can't comment about the gains comparing to other DOWNPIPE since I havent tried any other yet but I m loving this setup.
