    Better than standard.

    Not as good as a FMIC.

    Easily capable on cars running a state of tune upto 275bhp.

    Cheap FMIC's are an alternative but some are a pain to fit and others have end tanks put together by blind monks.

    So recommended, unless you want 280bhp+ basically.

    Have to disagree that the fmic is better plenty of people getting consistent great figures with the smic. just because the fmic is in the air flow path doesnt mean it is better. By putting the fmic there you slow down air flow through the engine bay which in turn increases the water temp and that takes power away. There is no gain without some pain. My Zafira has a smic and regularly wins on the drag strip and even won the AOC Christmas party 2007 rolling road with more power than any Astra including VXR and stage 3 MK4 beasties. So I say if you want a smic get one, mine has been RR to 295.1bhp and 348lb/ft with one on
    Be Happy
