ALright, so on monday i want to order an FMIC for my 01.5 A4 on monday. I have already look and right now i am heavily concidering ordering a Racetec FMIC. I like the Racetec for two reasons.
1. It fits behing stock bumper with no cutting.
2. I can keep my stock fog lights (very important)

are there any other compinies that offer FMIC's that also: dont require me to cut my stock bumper. and also that allows me to keep my stock fog lights.

ALso i was wondering how the ractec guys like their fmics? as well as does the Ractec FMIC cause any problems ? (like having the engine run hotter) or anything like that ?

THanks

What turbo you are going to use I think is going to be a big factor.

Racetec says nocutting rquired but a lot of the guys running the stock bumper/fmic had to do a little cutting. I ordered mine a little while ago and I'm just wating for them to be shipped. I'll let you know when I install mine if I needed to cut it up.

At least yours is in your garage. I can't wait for mine to come in so I can install it. Man, am I impatient. [O_O]

any body know if I can just buy the hard pipes from EvoMS? Sorry, bit of a thread jack, but I'm sure other people have wondered as well.

What is the EvoMS core's ratings? It's rather thin, can it handle a 2871 or bigger?

I like my racetec a lot... Although, i did have to do a fair amount of cutting. I have a 99, so no fogs to worry about, also i hear there is some sort of pump on dbw cars which can get in the way on the passenger's side.
