      Jonny took his CTS Stage 4 R32T home Monday, what an amazing beast. The install looks pretty clean doesn’t it?

      I have seen people install these with engine covers, the piping is basically the same as this, so you may have to trim part of the drivers side slightly if you want to keep your engine cover:

      on TT 180. Can we put the cover back?

      ok. it's "possible" but not guaranteed. just like the aliens, it's "100% possible," but it's really up to who installs it.

      Correct, if you're not experienced then you could cut the engine cover in half instead of trimming an edge, then you'd be sadly out of luck. We have done it many times, the TT180 is basically the same under the hood as a MK4 1.8T. The aliens can be left in tact.

      Also, this kit is compatible with our TT180Q and non Q turbo kits.

      just finishing up the install , it fits very nice !! we only ran into one issue and with the TIP i have from frankenturbo , the first charge pipe needs a spacer ( wich works out cause now i dont have to modify and other the nice 304 SS piping ) all we are gonna do is make a 4 inch section of pipe with a diverter bung and a signal nipple for the WG!

      Looks like the FMIC blocks half the radiator. Why not just add a second SMIC instead?
      Sex should be like a Civic; slow, obscene, and loud enough for the neighbors to hear.

      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.

      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
      MK4 24V FMIC
      MK5 2.0T FMIC
      MK5 R32 FMIC
      MK6 Golf R FMIC
      MK6 2.0T FMIC
      B5 A4 FMIC
      B6 A4 FMIC
      B7 A4 FMIC
      B8 A4 FMIC
      MK1 TT180 FMIC
      MK1 TT225 FMIC
      MK2 TT 2.0T FMIC
      S3 225 FMIC
      BMW 135 FMIC
