Does it matter to you how much trimming is required to make it fit?

I'm interested in getting FMIC too for the same reasons (Cobb Stage 2+...running 2 already right now). I was thinking ETS to be honest too.

Can't go wrong with Helix or a DIY project.
AMS also is a sound choice.

If you're gonna go the CX Racing Route to save cash, don't buy the preassembled kit, just buy all the parts and put it together yourself.

Give me a shout if you wanna do it I can give you a hand since I wanna try it too.

If you're doing a group buy, make it spring, cuz I can't afford to spend more on my car now after buying the Cobb

A DP groupbuy would be useful too...

You might be able to get in on the current ETS FMIC group buy. There was a post a few days ago about some remaining spots...

ETS for an easy breezy install...it's also one of the most efficient ICs out there.

is that what Ivo put on your ride a couple weeks ago? The 5" is probably "slide in" but it looked identical to stock size IMO. Haven't looked at the efficiency gain though so I am sure its better than the stock IC.

Yup. Ivo said it took less than an hour to install. I bought it from Mike@N54Tuning.

ETS 5" is a smaller intercooler and fits easily... they have a lot of data available on the forums testing it out.
