I'll consider this a public service announcement. If you ever are in an accident and crack both intercoolers, then you need to order an FMIC immediatly and just go that route. I got back the pricing on the ICs and here's how it plays out:<p>Stock primary IC: $423.38<br>Stock tiny IC: $510.07, yes for that tiny thing<br>Total: $934.43 + tax<p>Phuz FMIC: $844 at your door.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>

Either way, the FMIC is cheaper.
