Thanks to Sam (fightinchunk), I can now officially say that these items will fit the S60 2.5T and the T5 models. I know several of you have been asking me about fitment, but Sam was able to bolt an "R" downpipe up to these cars directly, and after confirming the layout in the engine bay, the FMIC kit will fit as well, although it may have more trimming required on the inside of the bumper than the R does.

Phuz, what's the point of putting a 3" exhaust system on our cars, when the intake lines and even the intake itself is not 3" big?

This is awesome news. It's good to see an affordable downpipe made available for the T5.<p>What does installation usually cost on a downpipe (time to start budgeting)? I have an EST exhaust going on soon, I may want to do them together.

How about the moving of the AC condesensor? Is any decharging of the system involved?

Is there anyone on SwedeSpeed who's successfully thrown PhMIC <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> on their T5 yet? <p>I would want to know exactly how much trimming is required.<p>In general actually, have many S60 HPT/LPT on Swedespeed done a FMIC setup?

I'm just waiting for the extra cash to drop from the sky and into my hands, that's all. Otherwise, that FMIC woulda already been on this car. . .<p>Speaking of me spending money on my car, my clutch feels mushy and I'm due for a timing belt soon--and maybe some new motor mounts while I'm at it. Now that I remember, I've never serviced my oil trap catch can before, and I'm sure I can hear my cabin filter clogging up again. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">

If someone is interested in doing a kit, we can schedule a time for installation and I will do the first one free...for verification purposes.
