FYI: your instructions for the FMIC has a few issues

- step 12 lists a 19mm socket for the bolts - but my 2016 GTI had 16mm bolts.
- my kit included a small cable clip, but the instructions never say where exactly to use it.

You guys really should make a YouTube video for the fmic and the oem location one I enjoy watching your videos also it gives your customers more confidence on installation.

Thinking of pulling the trigger on the FMIC. I do plan on autocrossing it eventually. But I’m thinking it should do the trick for now.

there's also treadstones tr8 and tr10. I wouldn't bother with Ecs unless you want to wait till Sept for their true fmic since it's on back order again.

Look at the cost of the others jakes and lt are $700-800 and the cts is at $500 but it’s a little too small for what I want. Ecs is right at about $500 and it makes sense anymore expensive you might as well good ie or apr stock replacement intercoolers

ecs core is probably only good for 400-450hp so for people with bigger power goals that won't be ideal. Jakes is 725+
shipping the treadstone tr10 kit is 799 shipped but has a 666hp rated core. The standard kit for the tr8 is 500 shipped which isn't bad. so plenty of different options out there just stating the other options since ecs fmic is on back order.

$725+shipping for a kit built around a $200 intercooler. Dayum.

The horn holes were not large enough on my 19 gti I did drill them out also the instructions are for a mk7 and the grill removal is different on a mk7.5 anyways installed pics everything else fits perfectly and I’m extremely happy.

also posted some installed photos :)
