      Im planning to buy a FMIC but i dont knw which one to pick from... the eurosport one claims gains of hp up to 11... have you dyno tested yours and see how much HP you gain??? im aware that the intercooler's main purpose is to keep the power consistent but can you show me a dyno of a before and after???? also if order the Kinetic does it come with instructions on how to install?

      Compare the size of the cores and your answer should be simple. The FMIC we sell will support a real 450HP, the one you're looking at would be hard pressed supporting 250whp, that being said FMIC kits dont 'gain' horsepower.
      This is how it works, lets say you do 3 pulls in your car on the dyno. Pull one lets say you make 250HP, pull 2 your intercooler isn't as efficient because it becomes heat soaked, so your second pull results in 20 less HP, then your third pull the intercooler is even more heat soaked so lets say you make 215HP.
      If you upgrade to a larger intercooler like our FMIC, those dyno pulls described above will result in a steady 250HP rather than a loss in power. If anyone says their FMIC increases power they are misleading you.
      If you order the kit from us we send out a CD with installation pictures, additionally there is a handy write up from Alex @ Unitronic right here:

      If you have any questions feel free to ask.

      Just a few Kinetic intercooler install pic's.
      Rebar modification:



      Original Piping layout

      I ended up going with 2.5" piping and used the original piping as a template since everything fit so well

      Now fitted behind the OEM Bora-R bumper. Very little trimming had to be done to get it to fit the way that I wanted. The couplers did stick out a little so the mesh inserts on the sides had to be trimmed a little as well. I think that it came out pretty good.

      This is a Great FMIC and as long as you take your time installing not much trimming will be required. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] to CtsTurbo

      Laying out the piping is very easy. The most difficult part is installing the IC itself and that may include modification to your current rebar. I have some pictures of the mods that I did to my rebar a couple of posts up. I also had to trim the inside of my bumper cover but only a very little.

      I just put my order in

      haha now I see I installed mine way to high in the bumper which is why I couldn't for the life of me get the side vents in... oh well after about 3 passes in the thing I got over that quickly! I guess I could lower it down and slide the vents in but I'm getting use to seeing the silicone elbows and pipping now and I would be more annoyed knowing that the silicone hoses had those extra bends in it instead of being nice and straight

      Great price for a great preforming kit, only thing is having to reuse the stock TB hose but since I got a forge one one the way with a DV relocation kit once the black hoses get restocked it's not much a problem

      to CTS turbo! thanks for the deal!

      EDIT: oh yeah I like being able to see the K's in the end tanks too =) when people ask me what the stand for I have fun making up German sound words haha

      Thanks for the review, you can fit the vents in on Golfs, Jettas, R32 bumpers, 20th bumpers and even euro bumpers, i've seen it with my own eyes, but it took some patience
