Just installed the Phmic and i must say not to bad to do. It took me longer to find all my tools and some drill bits( we had a busy thur and friday at work). I do know its a little crocked but i have made slots in the mounting angle so i can adjust this just had othe rthings that i needed to do today so i wrapped it up when i was done. The car drives great it was 93 deg today and it felt liek i was driving in 75 deg weather what a differance it makes here in Alabama.<br>Sorry for crap cell photos all i had at work with me i forgot the camera and wasn't driving back 20 miles home to get it lol<br><IMG SRC="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/3/3234/4421/33084710020_large.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/3/3234/4421/33084710019_large.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://memimage.cardomain.com/ride_images/3/3234/4421/33084710018_large.jpg" BORDER="0"><BR><BR>

Re: (97GLTbrick)

Did you PhMic come with T-bolt clamps or did you buy them yourself? Also looks great... I will be picking my kit up Friday <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

^^ Kmg it came with the cooler core, silicone couplers, and all t clamps. The only thing i had to buy was a peice of angle aluminum for mounting the core to the raditor/condensor asy. I got it at lowes its a 2"x2" angle aluminum 1/8" thick about $20. i can live with buying a $20 angle aluminum for the price of the kit lol well thought out design imo

Looks hot! <p>Are you considering painting the IC black? I think it would match pretty well.

Chris, looks great man! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Since you did the work yourself, if you have any pointers that you think should be added to the installation guide, drop me an email. I'm always eager to hear feedback from those who install the kit.

+2. I finally had the chance to drive my car with my FMIC and DP installed. The FMIC is nice, can't say I noticed a difference (it is not hot here yet, I'm sure when summer finally arrives it will make its presence known). The DP? WOW! I love this thing. Turbo spool up seems much much better, perhaps it's just me, but the car seems much more "eager" not that it is any faster 0-60 or produces more HP (Maybe, who knows?) but the turbo lag is much improved. I'm in R heaven....
