You need to find out what your goal is for the car first, otherwise you are spinning yur wheels (spending $ aimlessly).

Find what turbo you want and can support, then the question can be answered.

a FMIC with that set up is definitely not good use of your money.

you should get:
turboback exhaust
uppipe
tune.


if you want a FMIC, a bigger turbo & supporting mods would be the best route to take with that.

A stock turbo doesn't even come close to warranting a FMIC. You will more negatives to performance than positive.

Get an stock STI TMIC if you must, but your stock intercooler is fine for what you have.

If you plan to get a bigger turbo... then it doesn't hurt to look at upgrading to a fmic (in my opinion) My personal opinion is, vf39 and larger can rate a medium size fmic.

I'd look at the Perrin piece... it's 18% off right now, and it's one of the better FMICs on the market. The Perrin, and APS DR525 are the only two FMICs I'd recommend anyone look at.

Look into an EvoIII 16G turbo setup - that'll do more for you than a FMIC

The APS FMIC works with their intake.

The STi TMIC would be fine, but if you can find a used TXS TMIC (not one of the chinese knockoffs), that would be better
