Just wondering if anyone's tried a FMIC and a TMIC setup yet. There's a shop willing to experiment on my car if I scoop up the FMIC....but I'm broke...hehe
I believe that there is generally less pressure drop across a front-mount than a top-mount. What you are probably confusing this with is the fact that a FMIC generally has more volume and therefore takes longer for your turbocharger to pressurize. This is perceived as lag.BoostedAWD said:...its just me..but i dont think thats a good idea. the amount of piping and the amount of air that has to flow through all that piping would either conflict with the stock turbo's effiency range. now..i believe that if u had a larger turbo..like a vf30, or pe1820..then that would provide enough flow so all that piping woulnt bog down the current of air that flows through the system.
I belive for a front mount system..there is a pressure drop of about 1-2.5 psi in general....it would be less for a top mount.
