    Front mount intercooler - next mod - Which one?

    My next addition to MS3 is going to be a FMIC. Now I need to know which one is the best bang for the buck.
    I am looking at the Garrett FMIC and the COBB FMIC.

    Corksport all the way! Turns your original tmic location into a ram air intake. Quality of their products are top notch.
    Completely stock...

    I've heard really good things about Cobb's FMIC v2. Never heard of the Garrett though.

    Fmic -

    Right now I have it narrowed down to 2. But open to more.

    Any others I should look at?

    Protege Garage's piping kit is only $200 right now. Then source your own intercooler. I wish I could afford that right now. For what it's worth, I kind of hate you know my opinion isn't biased, LOL.

    I would go Corksport with the whole top mount intake and front mount intercooler combo. Couple that with the new hood that has the genpu scoop in it, and I would be set!

    First you need to decide what you want to do with your car. Autocross, drag race, spirited driving, etc. The mods you select should either improve performance, safety, handling, technical or??

    Pick you preference and then ask question on that and we will be glad to give you suggestions.
