So I'm thinking bout getting a tyrolsport smic upgrade. In my last beetle I had a fmic and I wasn't that happy with it. Seemed like my beetle ran hotter with it and i kept blowing pipe couplings off and getting stranded. The tyrolsport website says they're smic does almost as good as a fmic with much less heat soak than the stock unit. Seems like also with less piping there would be less pressure drop and the front grill can still get all the fresh air to the radiator not to mention I can keep my fog lights. I've read on the vortex of other people running big Garrett turbos successfully with this intercooler. What do you guys think? Have any of you run them?

I'm also curious. I don't think I want to go with the big FMIC. I like my fog lights.

Subbed for further updates/free bump.
