Tons of less expensive, just as good, FMICs...

Eurojet, CTS etc

Mine took a lot of effort for whatever reason. Either way I'm glad it went on and I'm rid of the o-ring.. Glad yours went more smoothly..

Are those of you running the S3 TOP also K04? My Neuspeed K04 TOP has been trouble and I would love an alternative.

What problems are you having? My Neuspeed ko4 discharge pipe has been fine even with my stage 3 kit.

I've had both the 90 at the turbo to the pipe pop off as well as the coupling side to the IC multiple times. Torn numerous green gaskets. I have adjusted it in every way- the last time when I put on the Fluidampr I thought I had it (hairspray, T-bolt clamps and a worm gear at each connection). It always starts as a small oil leak and if I don't address it, leads to a pop off.

No doubt that VW clip adaptor is stupid though I haven't had any problems with mine but if yours is giving you trouble I would spend the money on the AWE pipe to do away with that shit. I would if mine ever gives me problems. You could sell your Neuspeed pipe and get a good deal of your money back so it wouldn't cost much.

I just installed the neuspeed fmic this afternoon took me about 2 hrs taking my sweet time. I discarded the clamps it came with and used constant torque clamps. I also doubled up on the clamps (can you say overkill) on them because I would hate to have to remove the bumper to fix a popped of intercooler hose. I suspect I would be able to run 60psi (sarcasm) with no issues, lol.
