Hey all. Lookin to get a FMIC but have Injen IC pipes already. Is there any FMIC out there that is compatible? I saw one on Ebay says it works with the original piping but I want to be 100% on this. What about other FMICs out there? Any help would be really appreciated everyone!

The Garrett stock replacement or any other IC that you could fab brackets to fit the stock position.

Pretty sure that you're going to need 2x U sections of tubing and some extra couplers. It will work, and work better than stock, but with all those transitions of different pipe diameters, there is some added power to be found in that. If that makes any sense :p

injen IC pipes are made to be stock replacement. So it fits like stock.
Most after market IC have the inlet/outlets on the side. Stock IC has it located at the back of the end tanks at a weird angle IIRC.

well most aftermarket IC's will sit in front of the stock IC. if it replaces the stock IC completely, it should work with the Injen piping.

AFAIK, all the aftermarket IC have side dump inlet/outlet. There hasn't been one that sits in stock location. There are these (I think) plastic things that would block side dump IC inlet/outlets. So you would still need U sections, if you can get it to work.

Stock IC has rear dump inlet/outlet.

AMS was designed to work with the stock piping.. not see a problem using it

Those would be examples of the U sections I was talking about, and sit in front of the stock IC location.

exactlyyy :) I believe the garret core also comes with these U bends to work along side the stock piping.. and is a little cheaper than the AMS core.

The truth about fmic replacements??? :point::point:HAS to be:bowdown: AEM :bowdown:core. All others have side in/out. AEM has rear in/out, which means far less fewer turns and not a single U turn in sight. If you can modify your aftermarket core to have rear in/out. you'll be so much better... The whole thing vibrates and shakes. Have that in your engine compartment and soon you'll be complaining about all the :mad2::mad2:rattle:mad2: :mad2:under your hood. I've seen several installed kits. None more user daily driver friendly than the AEM.

Lovefabb core using the same direct route as AEM but has handmade endtanks instead of cast. Much better quality IMO

AEM goes for $750 -$800 complete pipes/FMIC...Lovefab sells a complete engine setup, no mention of just the fmic & pipes... for a cool $5000 !!! Take that into consideration.

Where??? I've been following them on eBay, they come and go between $600-$850. Haven't yet jumped in. Anybody selling just the core with the in/out rear openings?

So does anyone know for sure if any of these mentioned will work on my car with the Injen IC pipes?
