Default Which fmic?

What brand / make is acknowledged as good value and quality ?
I don't want to spend much on it, the likes of japspeed any good?

Also, what is recommended to replace the airbox with maf connection ?
Do you have to relocate the water bottle ?
The car is a 2004 T25 with 465bhp, so near max of the tmic.

You say that, but it would be fine for him. You could buy the Japspeed one six times over for the price of a Perrin so no point spending all that for under 500bhp.

I paid 1700 plus vat for a hks one

if I as my way again I’d buy a decent core and custom fit on the pipework

Yes it's fine for your power but then if you want to go more power in the future you will need to replace it

i agree, i have a japspeed one on my hawkeye sti @ 352bhp and im taking it to 450bhp later this year on the same intercooler.

i use a k&n filter and a forge dump valve.
fitment is ok to be fair and everything clamps up ok, been on my car for 4-5 years now with 0 issues.

i will be swapping my induction kit to one of the rcm ones when i go for more power

Nobody supplies the DHI kits in the UK now as far as far as I know. Bob at Aztec used to sell them before he closed down. I contacted another company who supply them for other cars in the UK but nobody took interest and they never got any in. Unless anyone else knows who sells them now?

I'd never buy another item off them. Still waiting on parts for the fmic, crash bar and clips. I Paid for it the same day as it was mentioned above and it's still not all here and won't be for another few days. 3 weeks is a joke. Lady in the office is helpful, but that's the only positive atm.

WOW, that's not good. Pole Position are normally brilliant with their parts. Ian is right on the money normally and I've never had issues.

Sorry to hear you've had problems.

Hope you get it sorted. Post up some pics once it's all done.

Will still be the cheapest HDI FMIC I've seen! Still a bargain.

Absolutely, good price. Looking forward to cleaning it up and spraying the core matt black.

Not that good from my experience.

Stripped egr valves,air pump from my car and found they were not placed in the boot of my car but the knackered clutch & flywheel was. When asked about them I was threatened with a visit then in the end they sent my parts smashed beyond use in a poorly packaged box. Wouldn't touch them with a crooked bargepole after that.
