That thing is a monster.

You can barely even tell I have an FMIC in my car. The Helix mounts in so discreetly..

appreciate it oh no not like direct on i mean if you are standing right in front of my car and look down you can see the top. It raised my boost about 2 psi and the car pulls like a train

Helix is nice and discreet but still super functional...Plus one of the smoothest installs...I would love to have a helix but with all the DIY intercoolers proving that they are pretty damn good bang for your buck...Id feel guilty spending the extra money at this point..

Oh ok haha!

It raised 2 psi on the autotune map im guessing? What was your before/after? Just curious...Ive heard of others with Procede (in particular Bakeme521) only get 1psi increase on his autotune when he installed the CX Racing IC..

Actually I take that back...Yours is N55 so it will effect the car differently than the other guy I mentioned (hes N54)..Glad to know you got a full 2psi out of just the FMIC though thats nuts!

I wish I could see it a little bit.. it sits in the stock location so its pretty much invisible.

Everything will be in one box...All the mounting points are perfect and sits the IC back far enough to fit the M3 style bumper im gonna put on (which people have problems fitting unless you make bigger longer brackets than shown on the DIY)..And not to mention it saves me to hassle of having to pay to get Meth bung put in

Oh and its way better quality than anything I could put together myself...lol

BUT I do agree with you...with all the BS I said ^above...the real reason is that im lazy lol

Yea it's not the same one as in post 18. Its the RX7 core that CX Racing has now turned into their bolt on solution. Same core/core concept.
