    Back in Black! ** Custom FMIC Build Started & Finished**

    The LCR is purely a weekend car, hardly gets used and with work and toddler commitments I kinda lost my enthusiasm for it for a while. Anyway, the temporary insanity has passed :) and modding has begun again. Just a couple of pics, spot the mods :D

    Right, i know theres quite a few people on here that are using Forge Intercoolers. Now this is not an attack on Forge as there service and products are top quality neither is it an attempt at a group buy. Basicly, after reading a few comments lately about the flow capabilities of the forge...
