It would do nothing, probably hurt performance. FMIC's work because when you compress air it gets hotter. If you are drawing in colder air with a CAI, you can't cool it off more with a FMIC. Also, the FMIC is restrictive, much more so than the stock intake system so chances are you would loose performance over the stock intake setup and a panel filter.

The point is, if you don't get enough pressure to take out the air you put in the FMIC then you will get less air on the TB and then will hurt your performance... get it?

Ya no turbo + front mount = RICE!

If you need to have the front mount look and no intake then look in ebay for a front mount intake......
