I'm looking around for a FMIC, and was wondering which one you guys recommend? If necessary, I'll change the front bumper to geta bigger one on. If so which bumper should I get? R32 seems to be the most common.
i used an r32 bumper and used a allard fmic which i plumbed in myself. it was all a bit hit and miss but the end product is pretty good i think. total cost of fmic/hoses/pipe ect was around ?300. and im getting good power and torque, and even after a long hard drive last summer the fmic was still cool to the touch.have a look at my pic and you will see it looks ok, just click on the link.
Chief, problem is that getting a Greddy core is import.... im sure some of the members did get them tho from a g/b on vortex. Lovely piece of kit that!
Nick, depends on the size of the core you use.... if its reasonably thin it will fit with a bit of trimming i would think. As for the plumbing... i did it in half a day with mates and we had no idea how we were going to pipe it until we took the bumper of. i used a few bits of straight pipe and x2 45 bends and x2 90 bends in samco hosing with the ibiza top pipe... sorted!
the one i fitted would not fit behind a standard bumper as it would have been to thick at about 70mm, but if you were to buy a thiner one then i would say yes. as for the plumbing in i brought some samco bends and some straight tube and played around with it for about half a day..
