Pics of my car with the FMIC are in the link above. I have the black Votex Jetta
There was no cuttin of the bumper involved and there was actually room between the FMIC and front bumper. The install was easy. The hardest part actually was removing the pancake and associated old plumbing.
The FMIC is well positioned my bumper opening (same with my friends oettinger red jetta) noth pipes on either side are leveled and straight and even
the installation is very clean and fits solidly, The piping still allows for the engine cover, CAI and strut tower bar to be used.
After installation on the way home I gave it a couple times and boost was normal, so all the connections were air tight (peaking 16-17 settling at 14.5 or so) (no leaks)
the car dyno'd last year @ 225-210whp (225 being the first run and 210 being the lowest HP run on the same day, 15whp drop)
this year once it clears up again I will take the car out to the dyno to see how much the FMIC reduces "heat soak" (approx) of course
overall the presentation of the kit is spot on since both cars in the link are top show cars in the Toronto and surrounding area where visual presentation is an absolute must.
so as for now (only had it on for a day), 2 http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif to Eurojet for a clean and air tight installation.

niether of those cars have stock bumpers so your fitment conclusions are worthless.
Also. It looks like the upper pipe is in contact with the strut tower bar in the pic.... Is it? Or is that just an illusion?

Re: (Cypher2k)

funny i was never there at capital invasion... are you sure you have the right person?
as for fitment sure it is... it fits with the 2 most popular aftermarket bumpers for the Jetta.
as for the pipes and the strutbar there is room between the two and after rocking the engine up and down there was no contact or hitting of the 2

Must have been just the red car then.. There were two guys with painted covers and those awful dual tip brullens...
Good to know the clearance is good. Ill have to shim one side to clear the coupler on my ATP kit.

eurojet. nice product but your interweb skin is way too thin. Take your critisism like a man and address it on the thread instead of bitching to me in PM.
I didnt think i was THAT harsh.... Just pointing out that I have yet to hear how this fits behind a stock bumper.

Re: (Neal)

I'd REALLY hate to see this thread turn into a "Eurojet" crew vs "others"
Honestly, a new product can have all the hype and customer testimonials. But until some of these testimonials come from people with deep roots in this forum, it usually gets a bit of a cold shoulder.
Let the kit get around and installed on some other cars besides people from Ontario. If it is a good product, it will get a good reputation, plain and simple.
