Homemade N54 FMIC (Even bigger than AA and HPF) for $300
Why buy one of those overpriced FMIC's out there for ~$1000 when you easily can build a bigger one for $300? (All hoses and pipes included)
The IC it self costs $240 and the pipes and silicone hoses costs $60 from a shop here in Sweden. I like to do things by my self, so I said to my self; Why not give it a try?
This specific IC has an area of 13770 cm3
As a comparsion, here's some of the most common and biggest FMIC's out there right now:
Helix: 11917 cm3
Stett: 11470 cm3
HPF: 13282 cm3
AA: 11085 cm3
The stock IC is: 7620 cm3.
The installation was quite easy. Just like the AA IC you just have to trim the stock IC-shroud away.
One thing that worried me a bit in the beginning was if the boost response maybe could suffer from this HUGE IC...? But, nope! She was still as fast and responsive @ WOT as before.
I took her for a ride when the installation was done, and WOW what a beast she became!
I will do some AIT-logs in a couple of days, but im shure that this IC will do an incredible good job.
I will also take some better pics of the IC, mounted on the car.
Could this be the biggest FMIC ever mounted on a N54?
