    Thread: What FMIC are you running for your BT setup? Why?

    1. 09-13-2012 05:32 PM #1
      Hey everyone,

      I'm planning for a BT setup next summer for my A3 FSI. I'm looking for a 300-350 whp set up max (Don't want to touch internals) and wanted input from those who have experience with FMIC's on their BT setup. Please fee free to chime in on the one you went with and why? Also, it would help if you had log's or whatever to help prove your point.

      I am either thinking of a dinky k04-06 upgrade or perhap's a GT3071R kit from CTS turbo.

      Cheers.

      I'm running the big CTS turbo front mount 750hp for my gt3076r.
      Love it, i use it as a front mount, not a stock replacement cooler even though it fits.
      Had to cut the re-bar a bit, but only on the inside not a big deal.

      Anywhom, love the cooler. I have full aluminum turbo piping and it works great.

      Do you have any picture's of the cut to the re-bar? Picture's of it installed? Are you running the CTS Turbo Kit as well?

      I don't have a "Big Turbo" setup, but I'm using the APR intercooler. I like that fact that it mounts where the stock one is and doesn't have that "Hey look at my intercooler!" look. It's very effective compared to stock.

      LOL at BT + 300-350whp. it just sounds funny. I got those numbers from the stock turbo on my evo.

      I would think the S3 I/C would be plenty for running that sort of power.

      Have you dyno'ed your K04 setup?

      S3 I/C = S3 K04. Definitely not meant for a bigger turbo.

      No, it's difficult to find the time to get the only AWD dyno I know of in the area.

      I think I'll be leaning toward's EJ's FMIC. I like the look of a FMIC. Does anyone know if it's just as functional?

      How'd you cut their rebar? Grind it down?
