CTS FMIC Kit Installed

Last week I installed CTS FMIC kit on my e90. CTS is located in Langley, BC. For those who are not familiar with CTS, they have many yrs of experience tuning VW/Audi and they recently started looking into BMW tuning. The CTS FMIC kit is very high quality and measured 20″ long, 6″ tall and 7″ thick. The construction is very similar to the other brand like ETS or Helix. The installation took 2.5 hrs and required trimming of the shroud.

Here are some of the pictures of the FMIC







Impression: I switched to cobb S1+FMIC afterward and the car felt much stronger then before. The car ran perfectly even with the recent high temperature in GVA. For people like me living in GVA who don't want to deal with custom, brokerage fee, CTS is an execellent alternative.

They also have catless DP and exhaust

I got the same intercooler! (Will post pics when I get home) These guys are awesome and for the price with install you can't go wrong.

My opinion of the performance as this is my first summer with the intercooler in.....the car pulls strong with unnoticeable difference in the 30+ degree heat we had. With the intercooler the car pulls stronger. I plan on doing dyno test soon to put all the nay-sayers to rest.

I do also have their CTS 3" downpipes which also helps a lot too.

Great product and awesome service from CTS!

Updated pictures

Any way you could update the photo links? I really need some help with the shroud modification, as I thought it was supposed to be plug and play. My car is in pieces and undriveable until I figure it out.
