Was just thinking about FMICs and to be honest I'm not a big fan on the A4.
From what I've seen, in most kits out there, there seems to be a lot of the intercooler wasted as it is hidden behind the bumper. I've been looking on the audisrs forum and a lot of the mega power S4s and RS4s don't seem to go much for FMICs and seem to make do with SMICs. This got me thinking.
Rather than going for a FMIC would it be possible to maintain the stock look of the car from the front by doing a twin side mount conversion, maybe utilising the 2 s4 intercoolers or keeping the OEM one and adding a custom fit one on the other side?? Particularly if target power is only around 300bhp which the twin S4 coolers will easily handle.
Sure, the pipework might be a bit complex but I can't see it being THAT much of a problem. Being as Audi chose twin SMICs for the S4 snd RS4 from the factory it tends to suggest that that is a better solution for the A4 than a single FMIC????? Sure, those are both twin turbo jobs so it's a bit different but who says a twin stage intercooler couldn't work with a single turbo??
If anyone has any thoughts on this I'd be interested to hear them. Has anyone ever attempted something similar?
