christodav Posted March 19, 2007 Share Posted March 19, 2007 I have just fount out that the FMIC that was featured in HPI #77 is available in 3-4 weeks for AU$549- delivered (within most of Australia -call for comfirmation). The intercooler and the hoses are ready to ship now but they are waiting on the pipes to arrive. This kit, available from Otomoto in Sydney, is small enough to fit behind the standard bar without any many major modifications. All that needs to be done is the bottom bar grill to be removed, the bar cut with a cutting tool of some sort and the tranny cooler bent back a bit. No metal needs to be cut! The great thing about this cooler is the size. It is thick, long rather than high and easily beats the stock unit that sits infornt of the driverside wheel. Most other kits require cutting of metal and aftermarket front bumper bars to fit. For someone who loves tinkering with their car, (and who doesn't), I think it would only take a relaxed day and a few beers afterwards to complete the job. The worst part looks like removing the bumper in the first place. I always like to take my time and start it on a Saturday just in case. I haven't ordered mine yet, but I am really serious about doing it. Anyone else game? :gav: (I don't work for the company that sells the unit. I only know about it from the article in HPI magazine that I picked up from my local newsagent.) Chris Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
