    What are you planning to do with the engine. If it's any more than a phase 1 map then you need a FMIC really.

    You need a FMIC. You just can't get the airflow to a SMIC and they aren't big enough.I used to use a very similar IC to this on my AWX passat running around 210 bhp and it worked fine.

    Rule of thumb for IC sizing you need about 3L of capacity per 100bhp.
    55 x 18 x6.5 = 6.4 L so good for around 220 bhp.
    I would ditch the cheap clips that come with these though and get some JCS High grip clips.

    Read a post about someone with a darkside fmic kit and they had a nightmare with it, had to cut all crashbar etc
    Anyone used this before? Yeah clips look **** will definitely get some better quality ones
