Apexi FMIC

Well,

I read alot about FMIC on here, and have done a search on the Amex kit. But, I just wanted to get some updated opinions because all of the search threads are pretty old.

Anyway, I have all the supporting mods i need, and my Big16G is on the way (fully ported and clipped 10 degrees).

Now, i just picked up an Apexi FMIC kit for $300 shipped. It is in great condition with no bent fins and the cort is polished. I plan on running arount 18-19 psi of boost. I am pretty confident the Apex kit will provide enough cooling.

Any thoughts or opinions here? Also, will I lose my factory foglights? If so does that mean I cant put aftermarket lights in their place (ie Catz XSL driving lights)?

I really love the look of this core. But, I thought about selling it and getting a GReddy BIG FMIC in return.

All opinions/thoughts/suggestions are welcome.

Thanks,
Nathan

Damn 300 for a fmic kit or just the core ??!! If it was the kit thats a damn good deal.
I think the apex fmic looks the best cooling wise i dont know if its any better or worse than anythin else.

You got the WHOLE kit for $300 ? on an Apex'i FMIC ? end tanks / pipes / and no damage ? have you pressure tested it ?

If you don't want it, and can provide some pics of what you have, I'll give you $300 for it ! that is the deal of a life time. That kit retails for over $1,000 usually, more expensive than the GReddy.

I say keep it, or send it my way.

yep it is the full kit. no joke here. nor am I flaking.

I also purchased a brand new, in the bag, never used, fully ported and clipped Big16G for $325. And a SAFC for $125

I am a shopping whore. I always fine the deals.

This guys was just despearate, and needed to everything he had. He has a baby on the way and needs the money now.

Do you think the Apexi kit will suffice?

I have a greddy IC pipes with a Apex'i GTR core and I like it alot. It can withstand some hard runs in the AZ heat before heatsoaking.

Later,

apexi FMIC

First off, that is one hell of a deal you got!
I love my Apexi FMIC, look at my mods, they are similiar to yours.
I have been running 19psi on the street w/ 93 octane gas. I am getting a Greddy EGT gauge soon (just ordered today from RRE) so I don't know exactly how hot the cylinders are. Bottom line, the IC will work fine.
