Alright I'm in. What happens if you don't reach ten people? Do we get our deposit back since technically the GB would not be on? PM me if you like. Thanks.

You will get your deposit back if we don't reach 10, or we could possibly still honor it. However, being that we're half way there already and it's not even been up a full day, we should reach it with ease.

It's being advertised in other forum sections as well.

What I've quoted those people who are interested in international shipping is "no more than an additional $100.00"

What this means is when it ships, whatever the cost is to ship it, up to $100.00, you will pay, and we will furnish you the receipt of cost. To Toronto, I can't imagine it even being half of that.

I believe Forge is the only company that has a 1M and a N54 unit, which are different (pics on their website say it all). I spent a lot of long nights researching FMICs, and I have to say to me this one ticked all the right boxes (made in EU, not China, 100% PnP, no trimming, B&P design, dyno and temp results from both manufacturer and independent users).

Yes it will, although as it was pointed prior, a tune would extract the full benefit of a FMIC. East Coast summers tend to be pretty hot and humid, and it is pretty noticeable how adversely affected our cars/engine are to such, so an FMIC would def offer improvement even on a stock car. I am pretty sure, had the 1M been given a bigger budget and development time, the M engineers would've popped in a bigger and more efficient unit.

There is no permanent modification needed like other brands, where you have to cut the clamps off the OEM couplers to make them work.

This means install and removal are a breeze!
You hit the nail on the head, I've been looking into FMICs for a while given my climate, state of tune, and results on the dyno (and on the road) where the stock FMIC simply proves inadequate. There are only a handful FMICs that require no trimming, and when it comes to quality and fit and finish, to me the Forge hands down is the best. The couple others just didn't seem to cut it from a quality perspective (no disrespect to those running them). Going back to stock and 100% reversibility was important to me and Forge's unit was done specifically on a 1M for a 1M, hence why it is slightly more expensive than their N54 version as they further tweaked it so we don't use the silicon connectors but rather it is a complete PnP for the 1M.

Wait, didn't you just sell your N54 Forge? Believe it or not, your original F/S post, coupled with Aussie's summary of his install experience is what got me going in the Forge direction.

Surely, I am back and forth between Miami and NYC (in fact 1M is down there now), but either way we should meet up.

BTW, I have some upholstery plans upcoming for the 1M, the fabricator is in Long Island City, PM me if you want to come one day with me and see what he has in store.

I spoke to Forge this morning and there is absolutely no possibility of a lower price for more units. We can still add more, but we are going to end the group buy Thursday, May 31st at 7PM eastern.
