Core looks very nice & the ends are rounded for good airflow. Design reminds me of the ETS kit with the staggered inlet/outlet piping

Very nice, I'm sure if I hadn't bought my Helix that I would've considered this. Be very interesting to see when pricing comes out. Assuming that this is a full kit, it'll fall somewhere between the Wagner core + the AA Sport Kit.

Tiago -- You guys including a replacement "cold piping" section that goes from the FMIC outlet tube to CP??

All kidding aside can't wait for the new fmic. Been looking into the Wagner but the 5inch with stock connectors is exactly what I'm looking for!

I know this is the FMIC thread, but what about the exhaust? Will there be a discounted combo price for customers who have bought the DP's? The Dp's + Exhaust are in the same category.

I'm definitely in for this - the new LSD and M3 suspension needs a workout . Tiago, sign me up, send me a bill!

VRSF FMIC+DP should be coming in at $800 together, group buy/combo pricing will drop it even further, and installation is fairly straightfoward. That puts FBO in the $1400 (JB4) - $1800 (Cobb/Proceed) range for 400rwhp...madness! Add in $80 for the BMS DP Fix if you need to clear emissions.

FMIC + DPs at $800 together is pretty unrealistic. The DPs brand new are $385 & I'd expect the FMIC to be priced around $600, so that's got you sitting around $1k. THIS IS STILL A STEAL!!! Especially when most FMIC kits are priced closer to $1k to start!

At this rate, you'll be able to have a full exhaust (DPs + CBE) and an FMIC all from VRSF for around $1,700. Once again this is a HUGE deal when you consider these are 3 fairly expensive parts that together could potentially costs less than a full CBE exhaust from the competition.

Based on post #27 of this thread, the FMIC will be in the $400's.

I should have been a bit more clear. The intro/GB price should be in the low/mid 4xx's.

I've got your DP's. Please let us know once these are available for sale. I'd like to get in on the first batch.

I am pretty excited to see new things, esp since you offer other products seems like a no brainier to get everything at once

I'm in the same boat, would love to be on the list for the first batch of FMIC's. Thanks!

While we don't have an official list, I suggest subscribing to our FB page for updates as to when we'll start the intro promo

https://www.facebook.com/VRSF.Tiago

I have about 5 sets arriving that are already accounted for which should allow for a few nice independent & unbiased reviews.

Tiago,

How much cutting or modification is required for the 7" intercooler?

Prob as much as any other 7" kit -- Cutting the lower plastic shroud from the inside of the front spoiler. Just a heads up, a 7" FMIC is overkill on a car that won't see excessive track events & the 5" IC will be a significant upgrade over the POS core that comes on the car.

It would be great if you guys ran some sort of a package deal for the FMIC, DP's and exhaust for guys like me! I'm currently just running a cobb, but getting itchy for some DP's and a FMIC.

I would also purchase a package that included all 3.

Tiago-

I'll be in on this group buy too. I don't use FB because it represents the degradation of humanity... But once the "official list" is posted please add me to it and let me know when you want the deposit.
