    Piranha Parts IC question

    I just got my piranha IC today. Fast shipping from the land down under. Included the motor mount.

    My question is for those that have the piranha IC. Do or Did you have to trim the hoses that connect the IC to the throttle body and IC to the SC? They seem to be long. The hoses when i put them in seem to start to kink.

    Its about half way installed. I'll finish it tomorrow

    no i didnt have to trim them at all. you just have to turn them untill they fit..... it took alot of twisting around but in the end they fit perfect.....good luck

    If you got the new Silicone hoses they are specialy made longer and to be cut by the Indavidual so you obtain a perfect fit.

    Trim 10-20mm each time until the kinks are all gone.
    Use a sharp stanley knife blade for best results.

    Attached is a pic i found on another site showing a good install.

    Hope this helps.
