Did Wagner up the price because the site has it at 620 Euros which is over $800 :/

did we ever figure out how to test the IC'S?

Anyone have a spare shop-vac and a heat gun??? LOL. Oh wait I do now. Time to sketch out a ghetto tech rig for testing..

easily settled - if Helix is set on theirs being superior - pay for a third party to do dyno runs on the same car, same day - Helix versus Wagner.

That is the only thing you can offer as proof. Words don't mean shit these days - data does.

I think it needs to be Helix vs Wagner vs Manhart (Racing)...



Here is Manhart's (stepped shape) FMIC...

If can test efficiencies, capacity, and pressure drop, then we are almost there. . Next you need to have simulate different velocities.

I think the best way is to have three identical cars around, with different fmic around a race track and test the iats.

Haven't really pushed it on track yet, but engine doesn't seem to go above 120 after the testing done with the Evolve-R. It was 2 back to back 2-3-4 pulls, then a series of curves in 2/3 around 5-6k rpms. I have done this about three times without stopping.

Theory is that you potentially get better IATs as the radiator fan also blows onto the FMIC.

My very subjective view is that all of them are about the same. Depending on what your car is for, different FMIC will suit different people's requirements.

Arrow Wagner FMIC display trailer at HockenheimRing...

First, let me say I wasn't sure where to post these pics. There are quite a few FMIC threads. I think my buddy Kirk won't mind me posting here.

I took these pics at this weekend's Tuner Grand Prix at Hockenheimring. Several cars there are running them. Top cars like TechTec and Oetinger, ect. Here are my pics...
