    Hey fellas, just wanted to know your thoughts and opinion on this kit for our K5 as I'm looking into it. Anything would help with pros and cons, thanks in advanced! http://imgur.com/a/sBNx6
  3. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Me and my buddies at Black and Blue Performance installed the front mount intercooler from 845 Motorsports this weekend. Unfortunately we did not take photos of the step by step process. However, since there really aren't any posts about this particular intercooler (and at the recommendation...
  4. Engine and Technical Discussion
    I've searched far and wide for a comparison between the two and have found nothing more than one is great if you want a direct OEM replacement and one is great if you want a front mount. What I'd like to know is which one is the better performer. If anyone has switched out one for the other...

    Just FYI guys, Nameless Performance will be bringing the FMIC back in a limited run and they will only make 20 for the Optima. After this, they most likely wont make them anymore. Get it while you can!
  6. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hey guys , what are your thoughts on this? And are there any other brands we can use to have a FMIC on our cars instead of a Wagner inter cooler upgrade? I like the look of the inter cooler inside the front bumper visual...
  7. Engine and Technical Discussion
    Hey does anyone know if 845 Motorsport's BOV upgrade kit works with their FMIC kit? I was assuming it would, but after looking at the pictures they provide, i was a little skeptical. It seems like the charge pipe would get in the way of one of the pipes from the FMIC kit. Any help would be...

    pulled off my front bumper today while getting my DRL's wired up and was scoping out the intercooler setup/routing and thought that I really like the way the FMIC's look on these vehicles but dont want to get a full set up and hear more of the suction as with an aftermarket set up, has anyone...
  9. DIY : Engine And Technical
    So I just installed my DIY CXRacing Intercooler. I've been getting lots of questions lately on how I did it so I decided to put this thread up. I bought the parts myself, and installed myself with a help of my co-worker which got down the price to no more than $300 for this build. It has the...

    Canned Tunes - the Do's & Don'ts and the In's & Out's: Thought it may be helpful to have a collection of shared experiences with canned tunes whether it be SFR, Utune, BTRcc or other. This came up for me today when trying to figure out if an FMIC and a canned tune do or don't mix without custom...

  12. 3rd Generation Optima (2011 - 2015)
    I just got off of the phone with Ryan at Nameless. They are down to 7 Intercoolers with no plans to make any more in the foreseeable future. Just a heads up for anyone thinking about getting one. They also cut 100 bucks off the price tag.
  13. United States
    I was over in SoCal this weekend to trade in my 2013 Optima SX with 88xx miles. Needless to say, I was in a rush and didn't have enough time to remove the following parts: CX Racing FMIC Full Kit - Powder coated wrinkle-black pipes and gold IC CX Racing Intake with K&N air filter Greddy Type-S...

  15. Engine and Technical Discussion
    So after a few weeks and 40 wrench hours of troubleshooting, test fitting and getting the correct parts in, I can finally say the CX Racing FMIC kit installation is 98.99% complete. No more boost leak, no malfunctioning BOV, and no check engine light. Without a battery reset, the car pulls...

  17. High Performance
    Yep im doing one as well, but plan to have this baby installed my next weeks weekend. ALL parts have been ordered from US sellers and all shipped same day. By design is to have less pipes as possible, and stay at stock tubing size. This is what I ordered 1x 2.25" 3-PLY 45 DEGREE ELBOW...

    Ok, So after seeing Nimrod start on the custom FMIC project I've been wanting to do my own. Then after seeing Phiffe get his completed I go off my arse and starting looking for the intercoolers and piping. Phiffe mentioned that TREADSTONE was a good intercooler and I found a great deal on eBay...
