PM Me the order ID and I'll check why the instructions were not on there. They are very detailed!

[QUOTE=Yourbuddysatin;5534892]Get a euro crash bar and no modding needed. Exit tube passes thru the inside of the bar.[/QUOTE

They replied and said they do not supply (sell) euro crash bar if I have a different brand of FMIC, so basically I needed to order their FMIC with the euro crash bar

The crash bar was one that was used (out of a junkyard is my guess) as it came dirty and you can tell it was used. Maybe reach out to junkyards out there and see if they will sell you one.

If not, get a bunch of grinding disks and cut out all the reinforcements on a US one. You can get it to work, but it's going to take a while cutting to get it to work.

The cx racing or whatever plumbs in just like darkside. Darkside can source a used one if you email them and ask.

You would guess that like I did in the past, but after I read their reply, it was very serious and to the point it said no we won't supply euro crash bar if you did not buy our fmic, so point well taken for me.

And on top you could see that Ryan P never gave me sales e mail from his company, it was Cuban that replied with their e mail, so I thank him for that but I was not able to get anywhere anyways

So just a quick little update. I'm still loving my FMIC. I finally found my boost leak, and ryanp was right...these clamps need to be TIGHT! Overall I'm very happy with my purchase, and can't suggest it enough. Totally worth it.

What kind of IAT readings do you have comparing with the outside ambient temp
