here are some shots I took with my Precision core. I have this one: http://www.nolimitmotorsport.com/prod/AS1021
you cant beat the $235 shipped. The company shipped very quick (I live in socal and they are on the east coast) also it was packaged very well.

if you have any other questions let me know.

Only down side is that it is a universal FMIC which means you have to make up the brackets and have to make your own IC pipes. Basicly the same thing you have to do when buying a Ebay FMIC or one from ATP. This is why the prices for those FMIC's are so cheap.

yeah but a universal garett core is more money than the prescision core (of what I could find) and the precision is made by garret and use garret cores with different end tanks. The only difference is you can get a 3" thick core if you go with garret FMIC. Also I didnt want to go with the ebay cores because the fin density is just not their. The precision FMIC is top notch. Before I bought the precision i went around to some of the ebay shops that sell the ebay cores (CXracing/Just intercooler, OBX??? (they sell the godspeed FMIC)) and the pecision is in another league compared to the ebay cores.

Well their prices are kept low because it is mass produced with cast end tanks. The price of the core itself isn't all that much if you buy them by the truck load. But the main issue is that it is just a universal fmic and not everyone wants to make up the brackets or go out looking for a shop that can custom make them the IC pipes since that can get costly and cost the person some down time which is exactly why the A4 fmic kits cost more for a bolt on setup. I just feel the pipes are over looked even though they are just as important as the core. A bad pipe setup is going to cause just as much flow restriction as a bad flowing core.


BTW here is the same size FMIC for $190.

I'm running the Precision 600hp core behind what's left of the stock bumper, I had to cut out some of the rebar too.
