not to bad..comes on full boost about 200rpm later but up the revs the lag increase is not noticable. seems to pull a bit harder now. not bad for $240 shipped.

Hey man, where did you find this kit? I've looked all over ebay, and it seems like there aren't anymore FMIC kits for the R on there anymore, i always used to look at tons of them, but now there aren't any on there...?

I'm sure the core is the same as the DSM kit.. with some work plumbing it seems not to bad ... PS I'm in the middle of a group buy for meth kits it you don't have one.. it fits neatly where the battery is normally located... I could get a great price on IHRA.NHRA approved Morroso Battery boxes as well.. this probably needs it's own thread so as soon as i get pics of the battery relocate I'll let you guys know

Mine isn't bigger than yours.. I just like to drive

The one on xs-power.com is 4 inches thick, thats to big for the gtir i think. I went out today and took some measurements and such and with it being 4 inches you pretty much have to cut the whole bottom of the bumper out... I'm at a loss as to what to do...

you don't need to cut the bottom of the bumper out. The how-to's on the modifiers site show exactly what needs to be done to fit the cooler.

If you can be arsed, get the generic ebay ones that don't have the blue pipes. They are almost all the same and it's the same one I got. It works really well and the only thing I wish I did differently, was drill neater holes through the inner fenders for the pipes.

I can custon order it with a 3 inch core, but it will be $340 shipped. I found one on ebay, the kit and the core come seperate, but i can get both to my door fro $310. And it is from what i can tell a pretty nice kit. I think i am gunna do that, i'll let people know how it fits.
