Just a quick question, what is the best place for the IAC hose to run. I've seen a few people just out breathers on it, others run it to their Intake pipe. Reason why I'm asking is I just ordered a new Intske pipe and will have to tap into it for the hose. I'm running a fully built single. Thanks in advance

I had a bung welded on my intake pipe, and ran a hose to it. Since my intake pipe is a "cold air" intake, I like the same for the IAC. I am probably the only one that has an aftermarket pipe setup like stock.

The name IAC is a misnomer as it makes people think it only works at idle. Far from the truth, as it works any time the engine is pulling a vacuum, which is most of the time. With a simple K&N on the IAC, you are pulling in very hot underhood air.

We're not talking about a big difference here, but every little bit helps.

How do you guys feel about having it connect to the fmic piping from the fmic to the tbody? Mines not set up like that, but I had thought about it. I'm assuming that there would be no chance of any leaking this way, due to boost being on both sides while boosting...just curious.

I haven't done this either, but this is what I was thinking too since they are on the same side

If you're going to put a hole in a pipe, why not put in in the correct pipe? Boost pressure could easily blow off a small hose with a worm clamp on it.
