    FMIC- calling all a3s/s3s with FMIC

    Can anybody show me their FMICs on ther a3s/s3s.

    Id like to see how they look, where you got the piping and intercooler from.

    And if youve got a behind the bumper look or a grilles out look.

    Thanks in advance.

    Should be noted that the FMIC that Bill used was based around the Forge S3 FMIC, it was just a thicker core (80 odd mm rather than 60 odd mm IIRC)

    On that basis the Forge or AH Fabrications S3 should fit but I think it sits a little higher up on the A3 due to the shape of the bumper and Bill had to trim the back of the bumper a bit so would require a little modding to fit properly if you went for one...

    Should also mention that Matts A3 had a GT2871r, an S3 FMIC maybe a tad overkill on a lowly K03/K03s

    ebay kit is the ONLY kit for the A3 that I know of currently available Tim, Jabbasport will knock one up but it'll cost around 800.

    Best bet would be to get the ebay kit, and maybe a few additional bends on ebay to try and pull the pipes back a tad. I think it should be possible.....

    this is my custom "all ebay parts kit" on my a3 but works great
    there is prob many ways to do this, i wanted to keep all the piping out of the engine bay.
    return pipe runs above the intercooler through U bracket into the intake.
    i dont like to look of "vertical" intercoolers (single sided) although they are probably more suitable for a3s

    You mean Twin/Double Pass intercoolers?

    These fit extremely well on the A3 due to the location of the TB.

    BUT, and this is a big but, they aren't as good as a normal cooler. The air, as it passes through, has to make a 90 degree turn through the cooler which causes pressure imbalances. But the air does tend to be colder coming out of a twin pass cooler - as it's in there for longer.

    Swings and roundabouts.

    Here is one though.... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ht_1288wt_1165

    Yeah, it's no different to a normal intercooler really..... It just has the pipes coming out of the bottom, rather than the side.

    Thats a cool bit of kit, I like that!

    Yes, the A3's pipework is 2.5" (63mm) as is the S3's standard pipework - IIRC
