    SEARCH NOOB!!! just kidding.

    it depends on whether you're going to upgrade to a larger turbo or not. the TMIC is sufficient for the stock turbo. if you are upgrading to a larger turbo, yes, it's always better to have a FMIC.

    hows it goin.. you will like it here...

    and as for you skinny try doing a search I am sure there is plenty of useful info on here that you can find... (only use a fmic if you get a bigger turbo.... the stock tmic is plenty for any mods you want to do with the stock turbo)

    skinny... most people would say an up pipe and down pipe would the best first mods and I would agree.... but really do some searching around and you will find a lot of info on this site

    Free Mod:
    air intake elbow delete

    first, decide what you want to accomplish. power? handling? looks? a little bit of all?
    there's so much you can do. a path to follow and work towards is always great. the search key is your friend

    Searching is good. Leaave the car stock until you have searched and learned some more.

    Read the stickies.

    Hijacking is bad.

    skinny. way to hijack a thread.



    go search & read the stickies.

    and learn to start your own threads...preferably asking questions AFTER youve searched for the answers...
