    I love the ETS FMIC kit. If/when I finally go rotated, it'll be run on an ETS FMIC...

    In due time.. I just opened the box, looked it over, boxed it back up and dropped it off at the shop. Tear down is going on this week, then it all goes back together on the 17th. With any luck it will be ready to tune by the 1st week of September.

    It's also really easy to spool a stock turbo...I spool my HTA68 with a FMIC at 3200rpm. And I'm willing to be that makes a bit more power than stock..

    Resident Clubdub Debbie Downer. I'd love your ideas if you kept them to yourself. Subarus suck, get a new wife.

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

    The most popular right now is the ProcessWest TMIC. ETS is one of the best FMIC systems, though Perrin makes a decent small-core FMIC. Both are going to run you about $1000

    Which FMIC? For most FMIC you must remove the front bumper beam and support. This is not recommended.
