New FMIC... It's in! new pics added.
« on: May 10, 2004, 02:37:33 AM »
So I decided to get the new FMIC for my car. I now have to figure out how to mount it. Most of the hard stuff is already done with my first effort at a FMIC. The piping is already in place and ready to be fitted to the new unit. Getting it centered and mounted is the next issue.

But here's what I have to work with:





It's a brand new unit with core dementions of 17 x 9 x 2. The over all length of this unit is 27" long by slightly less than 10" tall. There are mounting bosses on the sides and bottom or top (however you mount the thing). But I already have a plan for it and some ideas for getting it on my car.
This is very compairable to Pat's Evo FMIC we are hoping to get installed sometime this coming week. we want to get his in before his trip to Sandia Motor Speedway in NM with Rusty!!!  8-)  8)  :)

So with any luck there will be two new FMIC'ed 1.8T cars in our local club!!!!

 8)  :)  8)  :)  :onfire:  :onfire:

This was the smaller of the two units sold by these guys. The other one they had was HUGE! It had it's own gravitational pull!!!

This one will be perfect for the K03 or K04 turbo. There might be a slight bit more lag filling this bad boy up, but I am hoping to limit that by relocating my DV to the driver's side of the IC. Thus removing the need to refill the IC everytime I make a shift. I have the parts for that also on the way to me. If Pat wants, we can even try and figure out a way to make his DV be on the driver's side to limit the turbo lag as well. We'll see...  :-D  8)

Hey man, I am hoping to have a little something, something for the front of my car, a something for the middle of my car and a something, something for the rear all done before the VWOTG show.

OK, so FMIC, wheels, but what about the rear?  what you got planned?  Painted lowers all around? Deck lip? Big ricer wing?  hehehe

That looks awesome BTW.  I am jealous!

Well heat soak wasn't much of a problem before. I'm replacing one FMIC with a larger FMIC. And besides, this one is polished!!!  :)  8)  :lol:

I think I'll go rip the front bumper cover off my car right now...  8-)  8-)   8)  8)  

Now if only my DV relocation parts would get here.  :mad:  :mad:

Jon, Winston knows what it is. I've only had it for about 7 months now. The freaking thing has caused me some serious issues over that time.

Dub, I completely stripped in down to the plastic, again. I think I might have it figured out. But some help from you would be much appriciated. Is the "paint booth" still in business?

Jon, it's a Zendar rear spoiler that is half way painted. The two side pieces are done, but the middle has been giving shit!

OK! SO here are the latest pictures of my newest addition guys!!! I installed the beast on monday afternoon. It took me about 3 hours to do it. It wasn't too bad because I already had mosst of the pipe work done. I just had to "trim" them a bit to fit the larger IC.















As some of you guys might know, I installed my last FMIC about two years ago to the day!! I like to do this once every two years whether it needs it or not!  :-D And only when it rains...

The car kicks ass again!!!!  8)  8)  8)  8)  :)  :)  :)  :P

Also, as it turns out, our friend Rusty bought the other FMIC this shop had. So he'll have the same unit in his car too! And as soon as Pat gets all the parts for his FMIC, we'll have 3 cars with simular aftermarket IC's!  :D

Not bad at all, a little smaller then I thought, but works for such a small turbo.

Congrats.

That's awesome Chas!

Looks great!  I was going to make a rain comment too.  It seems like it is always raining in your pictures.  Shows your wax off well though.

Steve, 17 x 9 x 2 isn't all that small. Any larger and the darn thing wouldn't fit behind the bumper bar. Yeah, it does work well for this size of turbo. Though the one that Evo sells is only 1" taller than this one at 17 x 10 x 2. Those are all core sizes. The over all length of this one is 27" by 10" tall. Only about 3 inches of it are behind the bumper bar. So a lot of it is out in the stream of air!  :)

Thanks again for the details there Chas.

Chas, I was able to locate a core, with end caps, AND polished caps for $199 from some ricer shop.  One bad thing is that the mounting points are on the bottom of the core, and the inlet/outlet pipes are 2.5".  Isnt the stock diameter 2.25"?  The core dimensions are 18x10x2, with an overall lenght of 26" iirc.  Im hoping it to still fit under the bumper support.  Whats your thoughts?

Steve, If you can work out the mounts, then that unit should fit behind the bumper bar. The mounts are kind of important though. And the stock In/Out pipes are actually 2", not 2.25".
