Looks bad ***, are those intercooler piping going to be on top? I can't wait to check out the final product, you have jigs to reproduce this same setup? How much cutting of the front bumper is needed?

yup, how the piping sits in the pics is the final product but still need to finish cold side piping which wont be done until i order more material . With this setup there is actually minimal to no cutting of the bumper due to how everything is configured.

the goal was to make this a production product until my dumbass got bored at the shop and started hacking parts off the car without thinking things through. Im doing 2 more setups for some guys i know, so hopefully i can rearrange some of the stuff and get it to be production friendly with minimal trimming of sheet metal

What about a reverse intake manifold? The cold side would be stupid short if you flipped that thing around...

Edit: doesn't look like you're too worried about A/C, so you could move your alternator where the A/C pump was and not have to notch the piping or space the throttle body all weird if you reversed the IM.

not a fan of the reversed manifold, too much work for such little gain i already cut the piping lengths in half.

Nice work, I have not wanted to do a FMIC because I don't want to cut the crap out of the front bumper. You should make it with no cutting or minimal cutting and you could sell those all day long. It's a sick setup, I think you could do a reversed manifold and keep the AC and make that piping super sick and even more would jump on this product. I am down to pay the cash for a quality product, most people make them simple as possible to keep the hours down in the build process. I'm looking for something super sick if I go with FMIC, keep us posted on progress.

i agree with him on both no/minimal cutting and reverse mani... i cut the crap out of my bumper to get my aps 725 to fit... i would also be down to throw cash at something like this, it also kinda looks vmount ish with the angled core.. i will be following this and try and make a post when i get karalton's flares..

ya you should get the flares, i much prefer the look and simplicity to a widebody. i fit 295s fairly easily. I have kw v3 on the way which have been converted to a linear spring in the rear, with upgraded spring rates all around mounted on camber paltes f/r. should be here fairly soon. Then im gonna machine myself some lateral links and some trailing arms. get the suspension all sorted.

Sad thing is after all this work i do. i may or may not keep my car and sell it. I have my eyes on a different car. But depending on how i like it with the refresh of new parts i'll try and keep it and still possibily buy the new to me car.

Once i get my car tuned on this setup, it will be the first time my car will be completely tuned. ive been driving my car for the last 2 years on a base map with ewg spring psi.

currently looking at the v10 m5's....but i can only afford one with some miles on it. because im not made of money like some people assume with all the pics I post lol. also like the e63 and c63 but those are also pretty costly.

theres also a beautiful dolphin grey rs4 on craigslist right now. But i need to finish paying off creditcards, which should hopefully be next week once i get paid for some work.
