      actually it only blocks the lower 4 inches , and the ac condenser blocks more . as for the second ic core .. well then i would have to swap manifolds , TB and mess with a few other things

      Because some people care to get real performance out of their performance cars, TT225 guys are upgrading to the same intercooler and they have 2 from the factory We've been selling comparable kits for nearly 10 years without issue.

      is it possible to just get the intercooler piping only?

      what you would not want the core is beyond me, it fit the car perfect and required no trimming,

      I was considering this IC setup but here's a couple of questions before I make a purchase...

      1. It's listed at $899, now on sale for $849 on your website. That's not the $795 shipped price at the beginning of this post. Which price is it?

      2. Where is the BPV mounted. I can't make out any ports on the piping and the pics don't help explain.

      3. Why don't you have good informative pics of this install? You're only relying on customers to provide pics???

      Hey Steve,

      Thanks for your inquiry, the website price is correct, the prior price was an introductory special, which a number of clients took advantage of. The diverter valve would be mounted in the stock location. We took pics of the kit installed, which in my eyes is much more important than taking a picture of us taking the bumper off or undoing a screw on a diverter valve. It's very difficult for us to have comprehensive pictures of all the intercoolers we make. Unfortunately we're not a large corporation with a marketing teams on staff to surf forums and take cool pictures, although I can appreciate what a team like that could do, but we always appreciate customers posting feedback and photos. We probably need to take pictures/make install instructions for all these kits we build too:

      MK3 VR6 FMIC
      MK3 2.0 FMIC
      MK4 VR6 FMIC
      MK4 1.8T FMIC
      MK4 R32 FMIC

      Our kit will work with your existing downpipe from 42dd if you have the 180HP model

      Bro… We had sick MK4 r32 roll in today to have our 3″ MK4 R32 exhaust system installed! Tonys R32 was bone stock before picking up this exhaust, but he wants more power!! Future plans include CTS Turbo R32 Stage 4 kit and complete engine buildup…. Keep your eyes peeled on the CTS Facebook for upcoming builds… Another local R32 Stage 4 should be hitting the streets this spring… If you’re looking for a 3″ stainless steel cat back system for your R32 drop us a line… sales@ctsturbo.com

      Stainless steel, Mandrel bent piping, Tig welded construction, 4″ Stainless steel tips, //CTS Embossed mufflers, Laser etched tips, CNC mounting brackets, are just a few of the things that you’ll notice when you look at the CTS Turbo 3″ MK6 GTI exhaust. The performance gains, quality craftsmanship and amazing sound are just bonuses…

      Today we had a customer come in complaining that his previous 3″ exhaust wasn’t fitting, exhaust tips were crooked and it was rubbing. You normally don’t expect those types of problems when you spend $900.00 on an exhaust system. Thankfully today hour customer left CTS with our new MK5 3″ cat back exhaust, tig welded, stainless steel, torca accuseal clamps, great fitment and sound… If you’re looking for a problem free new exhaust system that performs as good as it looks then check out our online store. We have CTS MK5 3″ cat back exhaust systems on the shelf, no need to wait months for someone elses exhaust system that doesn’t fit right…

      Cool pics but not from the 180fw fmic

      Where to mount the map sensor in this kit? Pics of the piping?

      You should spent some more time to give us the information we need.

      the map sensor has a bung under the headlight in the stock ic location, i have been running this kit for some time and love it , i will happily give you any and all pics you want . the only issue i ran into was there is no set up for a dv, i took and made a 4 inch section to go between the turbo and ic pipes as i could not bring myself to cut the nice pipes up , i used the stock outlet pipe , so it was free

      you will be fine , i am running a frankenturbo f21 , and make close to 270 crank . if anything the ic set up smooths out the flow , i noticed a big difference with the ic in over stock.. on the dyno my iat was consistant almost thoughout the pulls

      2000 Audi TT 180Q
      06-18-2013 11:39 PM #61
      With this FMIC is it necessary to use the pipe that route up inside the engine bay? Is there a downside to attaching the IC to the factory crossover tube on a mk1 TT and using the factory piping the rest of the way back to the turbo? This would be longer overall for the air to reach the turbo but I didn't know if anybody has tried this? Would you customize a pipe to achieve this vs routing through the engine bay?

      Thanks

      We've been getting a lot of from TT owners looking for FMIC Kits and big turbo kits. So why not just develop a TT180Q FMIC kit based off or our successful MK4 and TT225Q kits? Well we did it, and now we’ve got full TT180 FMIC kits that fit both the FWD and Quattro models. Our new kit utilizes all stainless steel charge piping fabricated in house, 4 ply silicon couplers and stainless steel T bolt clamps? TT guys, you asked for it, now you got it!!!!
