So the power gain that you are happy with may have nothing to do with your Forge IC since you don't have any baseline data to support it.

Yes could be no data from before but you can feel where the power differance is and how long it holds full power , also could just be the tune, the tuners have done 30 1m's and he was happy with the dyno chart , you have to trust people sometimes I wouldn't expect a tuner to say there program is crap but the car is very very quick now and I am very happy with it , I had a v10 m5 before this and feel the 1m is quicker to 140 than that was but doesn't compare to a m5 at top speed

Trying to stay on topic. We're discussing FMICs and not tunes. Not questioning your tune as everyone will agree that it is responsible for 99% of your performance gains.

I have scoops too and the only noticeable gains are the increased debris in the airbox, so be sure to clean it often.

Did you install the AA sport already? I have one too and wanted to know how easy it is to install and did you need to cut anything?
thanks.

Installed the AA intercooler with not much fuss.

You do have to cut a little out of the front which was fine for me. I can always install a new plastic part again.

Been in for months and working fine.

My vote goes to Forge. Not only based on its performance(dynoed better than ETS 5"), but also on how well it was made(fit and finish is second to none) and the ease of installation(using OE couplers). And of course, no cutting required.

As long as you pick one of the reputable brands,you're fine.
ER and ETS are the most popular on our website.

Bit of a thread drag up, but I'm very happy with the power gain on my 135i from using the Forge FMIC (which is the same part as the one for the 1M).

The Forge gave a 16 rwhp gain on my otherwise stock 135i (except for BMWPE)

Has anyone tried the Cobb FMIC? It mentions that the 1M is supported, but there appears to be some fitment issues. The clips on the bottom of the FMIC don't line up with the fan. Anyone else run into this problem?
