    Have you seen how much the Forge fmic's are now ever since the vat has gone up? Shocking! Don't think i'll be getting 1 of them as it's just too much money! Would like to get an Ebay one later this year, just don't know which one thought as there's quite a few and unsure about how good the fitting is.

    I dont know if iv ever seen a proven increase in power on a rolling roaded car fitted with fmic. But they do lower intake temps by half. Which means in real world driving, you wont suffer from performance loss on a hot day or thrashed, red hot turbo like you would with the standard setup.

    Loads of peeps pull out the haldex fuse with no problemos, infact im sure I read that it gives a smoother power read out as the haldex cant butt in.

    well most makes you loose fogs as you may have seen .. looks better if you use black silicone hoses off intercooler in this case ..
    havent really looked into it though musr be a way of keeping fogs intact ??

    There's a thread about FMIC kits if you have a search.
    R-Tech will know what to do with your car on their dyno.
