here's a recent thread - http://www.golfgtiforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=235409.0

i bought an ebay fmic a while ago, didn't think it was worth fitting tbh.

Am I right in thinking fmic cause more fuel consumption due to cooler air being ducked up? I'm not completely savey in this area, I've seen the TT mode for the arch and wondering if a forge SMIC would benefit from this?

£700 for an intercooler?!

Anyways the FMIC should be the last thing you fit before mapping. You're trying to fill something about three times the size so you're bound to get more lag and fuel consumption until it's mapped to take the intercooler into account

not bad, I reckon you could chop an LCR splitter to go either side of the big cut out too
