That's why we set out on a mission to upgrade the performance of your turbocharged hatchback with our brand new Front Mount Intercooler Kit to increase the volume of airflow, decrease temperatures, and improve the efficiency of your boosted baby for more smiles per gallon.

Who welds these, a 5 year old?
Please go ahead and show us how you weld endtanks, or how any other intercooler available looks any different in that department. Enlighten us please, expert of welding.

Is this the second cheapest fmic for the mk7? If so i think this will be a very big hit due to the illfitting of the Chinese knockoff

Guess you haven't seen NGP's pictures of these yet.
Do you have pictures or even a link? Looked on their facebook, insta, and website and don't see any ecs tuning intercoolers there. Looking at ecs website the welds aren't the greatest but they're far from bad. If they do in fact test it liek they said they do there's no porblem with that. As it stands now this is the cheapest fmic on the market that isn't Chinese(which btw is very ill fitting)

Unless the welds break or leak, this sucker will kill the sales for a lot of the other intercoolers! I have great hopes for it.

I found it. It is not the same intercooler. @Crild really should fact check his complaints before posting them. Yes that's a sketchy looking weld in the photo, but it's not the intercooler listed here. @Crild show us on the doll where ECS hurt you. Someone hold @Crild. I'd simply return that sucker if they sent it to me.

This is the less zoomed in version I’ve seen several different places today.

It’s good for the community to have more options in different price ranges, so I don’t think this will effect any other intercooler sales outside of maybe the eBay/Amazon specials.

There’s plenty of room in this market for everyone to offer their own flavor of mk7 parts.

Yes, that's the same photo I linked (click on it). It's an ECS part but it's not the intercooler this thread is about. If this performs like they claim it does though, it will sell fairly well at $499.

For sure not the same intercooler. The one posted by the two guys looks to replace the factory one and if it is in fact a fmic it's a different design. 2 reason i say that is because of the outer design and the way the ecs is positioned. If you're gonna at least shit post about a company please get your facts right, i have nothing from ecs and have no reason to

Damn I already got an FMIC I’m very happy with... BUT this looks like a great option!!! Love the mounting brackets and the integrated tab for the factory OAT sensor, end tank shapes and design and price point. Core size is good too.
