Could you send me the link please. I'm in the market for a FMIC. this had me worried but if yours is an exception and your install goes smoothly I'll probably make the jump. Thanks!

Wow I sure hope I am ok. I spoke with the seller and he said he has sold over 25 of these with no fitment complaints yet.

Didn't mean to scare you lol. If the seller hasn't reported any problems and the people on vortex that bought from him haven't said anything also I'd say you are set.

Most of my funds came from parting out my GTI haha.

So the intercooler is in with only a little bit of fuss. Didnt have to grind anything down at all it just took a lot of moving stuff around to get holes to line up. For 400 bucks its a great buy.

Nice man! Glad you didn't run into any fitment issues.

You should consider installing the charge & discharge pipes now that you have an upgraded intercooler. The pipes can cause some turbo surge when letting off of WOT, but it's nothing crazy like those JDM cars. It actually tripped me out hearing it in a German performance hatchback

Who's intercooler did you get? Total replacement in the factory position like APR, or additional like some others?

Sent from the ether.

Picked up some ST coils. They ride much better than my more expensive ksport kontrols. My only gripe is a slight squeaking, rubbing sound at very slow speeds. I've read that this is common.

New sounds for the R tonight.
I picked up a custom SRQ 10" enclosure and a sundown audio sd-3 subwoofer. Its rated at 500rms. Read through a couple threads on here and went with a JL Audio monoblock amp and an AudioControl line out converter.
