    Don't have any figures just word of mouth on the forums that it’s a good kit. I have not installed it yet as I was at a wedding Saturday and Sunday was spent sorting out my MR2 for someone to have a look at when the engine died and wont start now. Next week the car is back in the shop after someone scraped the front of the car at the shopping centre.

    Yeah but RS4 intercoolers aint great & you get the fog lights in the way too... FMIC is the way forward - especially if I follow through & go bigger than RS4 turbos...

    I will have a hunt around some of the other forum for you but pop over to the US forum has there is a lot more action than RS246 and I think a lot more info to be had as they only got the 1.8T and the S4 so they are well in to them.

    So the plan is car goes in next week Wednesday then Saturday morning I go up to the body shop and put the car back together again after I install the bumper, but saying that if I get the time I will try and install it this weekend in case I have to cut something and need it painted.

    That FMIC looks the business!! :smile:

    Shame the top few rows are blocked by the bumper though.

    Anyway, it's gonna be WAY better and more effective than a standard Audi item.

    No I have two A4's the one in the pic's is my 1.8TQ and the other car is my stock looking 2.8 Quattro Supercharged which is up for sale.

    My car was in having the front-end tided up after my Austria trip so I told them not to put the front bumper on as I would do it, saved me a load of time.

    It's a lot of work and not all done buy me. I had to get someone to weld the rear quarters and paint the car, but stripping the RS4 shell and the 1.8T was all my work and puting it all back together was all my work.
