i've read about a HDI being done no problems... and a Autobahn88 one? and i think possibly even a blitz kit?

maybe just down to the person who is fitting it? if there isnt any others then at least i now know about the apex one haha

yep but that ones apparently not so good as the pipework is so long and the core is smaller. bit laggy i suppose....

I was reading a few posts on FMIC's the other day and I think Yakozan has fitted the Apex type 2 (or at least one of the FMIC's) to his and kept the fog lights on the aero bumper.... It may have been someone else but im pretty sure it has been done!

mines an apex type 1, an early one though before they added the boost nipple to the cold pipe (manufactured one myself)

some negotations with the angle of the 90 degree pipe on the drivers side, means you can sit the cooler a few mm lower than it would normally like. drill a new hole a bit below the bonnet catch area and you should just about clear the fog light housings!

:D i kept my fog lights when i had my FMIC fitted,
mines a Apex type 1.
bumper did have to have a little adjustment and it was time consuming
trial fitting on and off to keep the fogs,but i think it was worth it :nod:

The main effort was drilling the hole in the battery tray :annoyed:

I had a FMIC on my Aero bumper with fogs still fitted too.

Got mine from a dude on ebay.

I've been looking at these as they look like good value for money, and apex dont seem to have a GB on at the moment. What are the like? just another version of the apex?

Thanks

i cant knock the apex type 1 mate, good quality for the money, stainless pipework so no oxidation and quite easy to fit in a few hour session. the hose clips you get with it are very strong but look awful though lol

I thought they were good going from the good 'rep' they have on here. I would like to get the Apex type 1 and i'll probably wait untill theres another GB, I was just wondering if they are £140 better than the Ebay ones?

I would rather have a good quality one with stainless pipes than a bad quality one and have to buy another one, or atleast new pipes, again in a few months! then theres size and proven capability..... I think i have just talked myself into the Apex :p lol
