    Audi a3 fmic intercooler

    Just seen this on ebay, and I just wondered what you guy's think.

    And also have any of you ever fitted one, if so are they *****es to fit?

    Also is this a big enough intercooler or do I need to go bigger?

    Does this come with all the parts that I will need or will I need to buy some more separately.

    Any help would be great, also if anyone finds anything better than this please let me know.

    Prawn has used the exact same kit that you posted a link to, same as me too. the fitment is very good, might be worth investing in some new silicone couplings and clamps though as the ones they supply are crap

    just speak to any silicone hose supplier, theres loads if you google it.
    off the top of my head you will need;
    3 x 50mm straight couplings
    1 x 50<60mm reducer
    1 x 60<63mm reducer
    Please someone correct me if im wrong :D

    It is what it is mate tbh... obviously using Forge quality silicone hoses is a preference but I would look to replace them after if budget doesn't allow...

    ...and its 'tuffty'

    You have an AGU. you don't have a map sensor. Forget anything you've read about map sensors.

    Now, go read the FMIC thread I've already linked to, and everything you need to know is in there. Ignore the bit about the Map sensor.

    you will HAVE to make your own N75 take off, but it's not hard, it takes 10 minutes, and all you need is a drill.

    TYhe kit you linked to in your first post is the kit to have for the AGU. anything else will be totally custom build like Tims setup, something it sounds like you're not up for doing.

    Use the search and read all the thousands of threads that clog up the forum about these intercoolers, that's why I did a write up on them, to try and stop countless weekly threads asking teh same thing.
