honestly unless your running a huge turbo setup, there is almost minimal difference between a CAI or a SRI. i was having the same dilemma you were deciding which one i wanna run.

My ebay auction will end in a couple of hours for a new FMIC. I've only had time to read through a fraction of this stuff. I'm not going to be pissed when I spend $350 for this thing am I?

You're getting so much more than your money's worth
I wish I only paid $350 for mine.
Mine was when they were still $450 plus $50 shipping
Still, well worth 500 bucks, IMO.
Just got complimented on it today actually.

Mine arrived today. I was expecting some dings or bent fins and to my surprise it came very well packed. Each box arrived double boxed and well protected. Inside the boxes, each part came very well wrapped.
Completely different experience from what I got from A.Dynasty from which I bought a TMIC that came on a plain box without any packaging material or protection and arrived with a big dent. Thumbs up for SSAC

Nope you got a good deal.. But I would suggest reading the 1st post in this thread.. It's an FAQ and should answer all/most of your questions.

Alot of people did all the hard work finding everything, it's worth the read.

Made 297 whp 294 wtq with this on a 16G.

Seems to flow very nice, fit excellent and looks great when you paint the core black.

Not really the best pics, but you get the idea. Also, I could care less about my engine bay appearance, so the clamps arent positioned for looks.

^^most likely you will have piping issues. You may have to fab some custom connections at the intercooler...

but i'm just shooting from the hip.

Piping issues is no problem the big question will it fit or I have to go down to a 24" 12 " 3 " to get it under my front bumper???

How Much are this Intercooler rated in HP 24" 12 " 4 " and the 24" 12 " 3 "?
I know they can hold up to 5 bars acording to the first post.....

The Greddy intercooler Dimensions are : 240mm x 600mm x 76mm = 23.6"9.4"2.9 inches

The 4" core might require you to ditch your AC condensor. I'm not positive, but it is something to consider.

Just food for thought the APS 725 intercooler is 4.5 inches thick and fits fine with the A condensor

I was looking at APS DR725 FMIC and the Dimensions are 9.5" x 28" x 4.5" (24.1cm x 71.1cm x 11.4cm)...

They are the exact same thing, and if you had read this thread, you'd know. Get one from them off ebay, do not pay the prices on the web site.
