    with the uni stage 2, my car is desperate for a true cai.
    The group buy isn't yet out but the parts are being ordered according to ATM. They just wanted to get the final measurements of the silicone and positioning of the ATM logo for best visibility etc. and get any last-minute feedback from NorCalSS and my experience installing it first to make sure there are no quality issues of oversights. I didn't find a single one, so it should be very soon and you will see a Group Buy thread in the ATM Vendor section!

    I can tell you first hand that the Uni-Chip along with this intake, the ATM FMIC, ported TB, ported down pipe and 2.5" cat-back makes for the absolute fastest set-up my car has seen in the last 18 months. And I have had a ton of different products on my car as well as every piggyback other than the U3 (though my father's U3 feels quick on his Abarth with the ATM FMIC and 2.5" cat-back too).

    Stage 1 was great, but Stage 2 with this intake is completely bonkers. I can't even keep it on the road with 215 rubber and I'm pretty sure I could burn rubber through 1st, 2nd and at least into 3rd if I wanted to abuse the clutch. Speaking of clutches... I'm going to need one soon now.

    I seriously cannot get over the throttle response. It's an often over-used expression, but all you have to do is curl your toes and you are going to be launched, even before the meat of the boost curve. The rev limiter comes so fast in 1st it is almost useless. By the time you get traction you have to be getting out of it and into 2nd and then you still are having a hard time hooking. Did I mention this is with 8.5" wheels and 215 rubber yet? (and not the lightest wheels either...I can't imagine what my old Allergritas would be like with this intake/tune lol!)

    Thanks for the all the feedback, including the funny ones, lol. Now, if I'm really concerned with the nips melting, I would replace them with more heat resistant ones or simply add it to my periodic check list among other things.

Shagghie has his filter covered with his HCI foam cover , the kit doesn't come with a filter cover BUT as you said you can cover it up with a outerwearz mist sock if you want a little more protection from mist etc. In our experience of you want to go whole hog and seal things off you may pick up some more positive pressure but only at higher speeds. im running and had run the prototype for months on my car without any sealing off and with the exposed filter. The filter used has enough filter media for 350hp, we plan to test the limits with the turno we will be installing soon.
    The Intake is basically a quiet but more responsive HCI,that's what people asked for and that's what we tried to accomplish with this part!
    Thanks for the feedback and advice. I won't be going hog wild as I rarely go over 80 mph here, mostly low to mid range blasts. That's exciting news about the new turbo. I def like more responsive w/ your new CAI!

    Based on their prior products, ATM takes their time, does all their homework, testing, and data logging before releasing their final product. This business model has proven to be very successful for them and I wouldn't want them to compromise or stray from it. I have patience for their products and am confident their new CAI will be well worth the wait. We're getting close to the finish line. Carry on ATM!

    Understandable, but theyve had 7+ months to work on a simple intake design where the two things needed were a mount for the washer tank and the silicone hose. Theyve had everything else designed or was already made.

    All parts are currently on order for 25 intake kits, we will post a Group Buy as soon as we get the current FMIC GB out to end users!
