    FMIC options

    I wondered if anyone can help in regards to an intercooler upgrade. (Mine is the 190 with twin intercooler)

    I would like to upgrade to as big as possible without having to make any modifications to the bumper/supports etc.
    I understand there's not much of a gap between rad and bumper so I'm guessing around a 50mm max thickness??

    I want to keep the FMIC sat behind the bumper grills but a nice snug fit.

    Thanks in advance

    Just for show mate, it's crash/damaged and the O/S intercooler is mangled and that's the only reason I was going to change this to be honest.
    What work is required for fitment of a FMIC?

    east to fit if its for show look on the bay
    theres a few options
    small amount of trimming the bumper on the inside
    unless u use custom pipewort you will lose the fogs

    Aaaaaa, I've got damaged air con pipes so I might just remove the air con and air con rad completely which should (potentially) save me from doing any trimming :D

    Not a good idea to dump the aircon it will make the car a hard seller when ever you want to sell her.

    These are your option for FMIC.

    Hmmmmmm I'm losing the will to live! Think this crash/damaged project is going to end up costing me the price of a straight one! I need most front end parts and getting hold of the parts are seemingly a nightmare! I managed to get an original O/S intercooler delivered for £108 so that will do for now...bigger things to worry about :/

    What Audi did you buy and maybe a few of us might come across something you need.

    04 Audi A4 B6 1.8T 190bhp S-line Quattro ........... I'm sorry for the question I am about to ask as I am sure it has been asked a million times before but I cannot find the answer!!! ..... Is there a B7 facelift conversion or guide kicking about as seemingly the B6 front ends are more expensive!

    Have a read of this to see what's involved.

    Finally done my B7 complete front end conversion

    I'd run a mile from a car which was repaired and didn't have the aircon fitted myself.

    Suppose that can be sorted at a later date when I decide to sell it to someone who it may matter to, when the prices have dropped haha! May aswell cut the aircon belt for now :D

    I'm not too sure of my thoughts on the B7 front end and it may become a pig to sell to an average person :/
