Yes, but your gonna have to spend some time searching and reading through several different threads. Do a search in this section for "FMIC" or "intercooler" and you will come up with several posts by different people installing different intercoolers i.e. cxracing, bigtom, etc. You'll have to skim through the pages, but there are several dyno's done with several different intercoolers. If you really want to see the numbers, your gonna have to search for them!! It would be nice if all the dyno results were in one post, but unfortunately, that's not the case. Happy hunting!!!

I've seen that thread before. Was scared to take the plunge with them.
Do update us with pics once you receive it if you don't mind.

Um....hard to say really, I mean yes, but I am always cautious to claim stuff.

I am FBO with meth now...I sent logs into Terry and he says it looks like it's doing its job.

Is it the best IC? Doubt it, but I would say it's probably the best for your buck IC.

Yeah I agree. I think being in Tucson summer heat I could benefit from it.

I have been running my CX intercooler for about 5-6 months. Working great, no air leaks at all. Will have to check my connections and clamps soon just to make sure everything is ok

THIS IS GREAT!

Just read through the whole thread!

I have BMW Warrenty... i know fitment of an Aftermarket intercooler will void, but if i return it to stock before going in, would they really void me just because of a cut/modified shroud?

They wont know your shroud is cut unless they remove your bumper.
I wouldn't recommend taking the IC off before taking it in unless you have a major problem with your car.

If I go in for a service, would they inspect possibly void my warranty?
And I could they void my warranty if my shroud is cut yet the intercooler is stock?
