Evening all ,
i feel it's time to go fmic as with higher ambient AT'S at the moment I've noticed a big drop off I'm power !
Now I like the idea of the fmic however I hate that bloody charge pipe that crosses the engine bay on 2wd a3's !
A bit of tuffty in me wants to keep everything looking as oem as poss , so I've been hunting around for an fmic that doesn't have to cross my bay .
Ive found this
And my plan is to fit it fmic style on the crash bar but pipe it all through the drivers side as the smic is BUT being as this IC flows in and out on the same side is it a fair guess that a High percentage of the charge Air will flow straight in the inlet and straight out of the outlet without being cooled at all ? Or does the IC have something inside to make the air travel right through the core ?
