    fmic info needed

    I want to get a fmic now instead of wasting my time with an aftermarket tmic because i do plan on going with a different turbo setup in the future. But as of now if i were to get a fmic would i have any issues running it with a stage 2 tune?

    Yup. You'll want your tune fixed up for it.

    Any professional tuner would be able to make you one up. I doubt you'll find an off the shelf (OTS) map for a FMIC.

    Contact perrin again and have them fab up a custom etune for your set up. Or go with another e tuner. But yes, it is possible, and you need a tune, maybe an ebsc too

    Wouldn't hurt... but it doesn't look like the original poster (OP) is going for much as far as performance is concerned, anyhow. An intercooler must be sized to match your flow requirements. If the OP is buying a FMIC before his turbo, he is either going to lose performance now (if it's sized for the larger turbo), later (if it's sized for the current turbo), or both (if it isn't sized correctly for either turbo).

    Yeah stick with a top mount. Most are rated to 400 whp, and it sounds like you aren't aiming for that. Process west makes an awesome unit, one I'm going with. Comes with a new splitter and tubing too
