  • Tx fmic ?

    hi there

    looking for a FMIC for my VXR and was reading through my TV mag and came across the add for TXautosport.(page 109)

    notice they have the FMIC kit for only £349 ? this seems very cheap
    anyone used this kit before?
    thoughts on the kit ?

    thanks

    Loads of people have them mate, you'll find mixed reviews. Some have had great experiences and good gains but others have had fitment issues. It's really down to you're budget and what you're looking for. I'd get one but not sure what use that will be to ya

        I suppose haha, if you're handy enough and are only going to use the VXR as daily driver/fast road car I'd go with it and put the left over cash towards some other mods. You always have the option of buying a second hand Forge, Courtenay or Regal cooler for the prices you've quoted

          yeah thats very true but to be honest would rather pay the extra for a better quality kit and gain better BHP figures etc, then save few more weeks for the other mods.

                        theres been a couple of threads recently regarding fitment issues with the tx cooler, one problem being if you have headlamp washers it doesnt fit with the larger washer bottle that comes with the washers anda few people had issues with the fittings catching on the bumper

                              This is also true and in some cases they still didn't get it right after 2 replacements however they do offer a great service in replacing them if faulty!! I'd say no matter who makes an item there will always be one of 2 issues. TXA's stuff always gets ripped to shreds on here.
