Like i say its down to preference really,alot of people go for LARGE FMIC,(which in the winter suffer from carb freeze),you only need something say the size of a cozzy 4x4 cooler,bigger isn't always better,the other reason people prob go for FMIC is the cost,say 250 against 600+ for a chargecooler,i prefere the chargecooler,but as i say the test will be in the summer when its much hotter.You can always run an intercooler with the chargecooler :D

Yeah,carb freezing...me,tested,true !  :lol:
The problem ocures only on the long road,in the city,there is no problem
The easy solution is a piece of carton from a box,put it in front of the intercooler,and stop the airflow trough it ! :D

UPDATE
Saftey devices rear cage in now & stripped the rear out,removed the sound deadening under the carpet as well,fitted the rear suspension,got an Apexi AVC-r to control the boost,MB performance downpipe/elbow combo is here & will be fitted by the weekend,got to fit the front coilovers & get her ready for Santa Pod on the 25th March where i hope to get into the 13's :D  gonna be running 1.5 bar boost & dunlop inferno road legal drag tyres.
Was hoping to get her on the rollers before pod but i don't think thats gonna happen till after now.

Well the sound deadening weighs quite a bit(especially as mine was wet!!),makes for a slightly noisier road car but like i say it does weigh a bit.Trying to decide weather to take out the plastic in the rear as well,all things that aren't needed are being stripped for Pod. :D

Here's the downpipe next to a standard one.


on its own


Downpipe cost me 301 euro's delivered from the Netherlands to GB

God'damn...301 EUROS ? for a piece of...pipe ?!  :shock:

I am shure selling my 1.6 conv kit to damn cheap :lol:

Btw. regarding weight,the rear plastic weights next to nothing,i removed them allso but only for rattle reasons.

U can take the rear wiper and the motor down,that's around 2kg,and important,take the grill that holds the spare tyre,off completly allso around 2-3kg!

P.S. Anyway the downpipe is great,i will steal some manufacturing ideeas for my own remanufactured exhaust ! :P

It look's like a 60mm diameter ! Or am i wrong ?

Carb spec & results so far;
Spec;
1.3 main jet
1.1 air corrector
1.0 1st stage
1.1 2nd stage

AFR results after adjusting mix screw on idle
idle 14.5-15.1 (lumpy cam i reckon,although it may be jetting)
Light throttle 10's which is way to rich
On boost 13's which is way to lean for 1.4 bar boost

So i will be putting in a 1.2 main,1.25 air corrector,leave the 1st stage & open the 2nd stage to 1.3 & see how she does from there  :D
