Default '99 FMIC with AC size?

I have read on the FM site that the largest FMIC that will fit a '99 and clear the AC pipework is 15x8x3, although I have the FM silcone IC pipework I am having trouble finding a suitable IC with these dimensions.
Could anyone suggest a source or does anyone have any experience of fitting an FMIC to a '99 with AC?
Cheers all.

Mine is longer than 15" but the 8 x 3 part sounds about right. It's an ebay Turbo XS unit. I got it second hand so don't know which part number. It had two ears cast into it and I drilled them and the two little tabs that hang down inside of the mouth to mount it. I had to make a little bracket on one side to extend about 1" to reach the one tab, so it is about 1/2" off center. Check the tabs inside the mouth, for lack of a better term. The core is about 2" shorter than that. The tabs are on the endcaps. I can get a pic if you need one. I still have my AC. Didn't even have to bend the lines much at all. Maybe a fraction of an inch on the cannister in front, but they are aluminum and bend easily.

Stein, I would appreciate a pic if you have time.
I think I can source a 17x8x3 which should be worth a shot.
