Mark and all,
    Although I have not fitted my front bumper over my car's new massive
fmic, here are a few driving impressions......
    The car dyno'd at 293whp and 304wtq and it's at least at those numbers.
Chris' similarly equipped RS2'd S4 minus the fmic dyno'd 273whp and 285wtq,
a difference of 18 whp and 19 wtq.
    At around 120mph, my car began to seriously pull away from Chris' S4
which leads me to believe the engine is breathing much better and  even more
so at higher speeds. (164mph, for instance)
Intake temps always remain around ambient  within 10 degrees or so.
    Whether you plan on tracking your car or not, I will put this in the top
5 mods for the S-car
Brakes, Suspension, RS2 upgrade, HID, FMIC
Thanks to Dave Stone and Brian Billotti for this beautiful piece of
functional audimotive artwork!
Also, A huge thank you to Mihnea Cotet for the street and race programming
with a flip of a switch!
