Are you looking to purchase used and put on your 1M or are you just looking for options?

HP Autowerks is already selling AMS FMIC and AR Downpipes. Granted the FMIC is backordered.

AMS front mounts are not on back-order. We ordered one yesterday for a local customer with a 1M

Yes, they will. Go HPF intercooler and CP-E down-pipes with N55 mids. That is, if you wanna follow my plan.

I have an ams ic. It will fit and is a great part but you must do a lot of trimming and cutting to make it fit. Also there is a big pressure drop and takes a little more time to build boost. GIAC can fix that no problem.

I had a look at the helix but it looked like the way it was designed would not be good for flow. That why I went with the ams ic it was the end tanks that I was sold on. Coming from an automotive background it looked like the best one on the market. If you take your car to a good shop for install go with the ams ic. Don't be afraid to cut the rad support once the bumper is on you will be fine.

I installed the Wagner FMIC. Perfect fit, no cutting what so ever, and it uses the stock couplers.

Not the least bit inexpensive, however.
HPF FMIC and AR 3" Downpipes.

Now I just need some Maddad Mids.

AR DP's fit and so will the AMS FMIC with cutting of the core support. AMS FMIC is no longer on a back order.
