    Hi all!

    Phoned up awesome-gti the other day to order the forge fmic for my s3 and i asked if it comes with the silicone hoses to join to inlet manifold and the metal turbo pipe. (the ones that are listed on the forge website seperately)
    and they said they dont know, so he phoned forge and got back to me and said they are included. however they arnt listed on the forge fitting instructions on their website so i called forge and they said the same that they are included in the package.

    anyone know for sure wether they are or not? anyone got a pic of what you actualy get in the box?

    Cheers
    Ash

    Not being funny mate but if you have spoken to both the supplier and the manufacturer, and they have both told you that they are included,how much reassurance do you need??

    Get it in in writing? lol :)

    They sell them as people who have mapped cars like to upgrade the hoses ;)

    Not sure it's going to make much difference over the standard hoses but if your running more boost it may help?

    No, he means why do they sell the FMIC kit hoses separately...

    Spares of course.

    Looks like there's confusion between the upper and lower intercooler hoses. The upper ones are not included in the kit, only the lower ones are. Shouldn't stop you from fitting the FMIC as they're not really necessary, more cosmetic that anything.
