FMICs are decent for making power. I'd wait for the fp, though. just my opinion

wow 320whp on a stock turbo. nice. Especially the 423tq. Must be spoolin' the crap out of that thing ;)

Give him a break the OP was way to long to read it completly.

Agreed. Get ready for some bucking and hesitation, though.. Remember, the fueling setup on these cars are a "timed/delayed" event. Adding eight feet to the intake tract without the necessary ecu changes (tune) can give you a little grief. Although, you may be able to find an OTS map from Cobb for the FMIC changes, to get you by until you get a protune.
