    Tmic question?

    Hey fellow clubwrx peeps... I will be buying a tmic(process west)from my buddy hear in the next few days. My question is will I or can I put this on my car without tuning for it right way. My buddy is running a stage 3 map from TP and I will do the same but I don't have the other required mods yet (ebcs,aftermarket bpv). I know without a tune I'm not going to get the full potention of the tm. Like a dp you have to tune for it. Is the tm like this?

    Should be alright.. I would log to make sure, but if anything it should make your current tune safer.

    Oh noooo. I hope when you say it will make my current tune safer your not referring that the TP map is unsafe. I have made a big step in the past month into the mod world so all I know is what I have researched and seen first hand. If you could share with me what you think about the map i am on it would be greatly appreciated.

    Although I believe some people are not the biggest fans of TP maps, I think he is referring to the fact that a quality TMIC will flow more air and reduce the amount of presure that is lost (lower presure drop). Also better cooling, which you would get with a quality TMIC, will reduce the chances of a pre-ignition, which could cause damage. (Although I could be misinterpreting his statement!)

    Well.. the decreased pressure drop is the only thing I would worry about. If you're boosting more then you might venture into load zones that have not been tuned, which would be a problem. I was more referring to the increased cooling capacity of the better TMIC to help prevent knock.

    I would only use stock heat range plugs. If you're having pre-ignition problems your tune needs to be fixed.

    Without seeing the map, no one can do that.
