Snow has no effect on FMIC unless you run into deep snow and jam the front of the car with snow..... Even then it'll be a hell of a cooler until it melts off.

I know in the long run the FMIC is more efficient and has more pros than the TMIC but I like to be sure of what I do. Most of thses guys live in places that rarely see snow if at all. Just wonderin how you dealt with it
yes it is and FMIC has been on for just 6 months. but snow doesnt go that high because the car is stock height. even if snow did what would be the harm?? the intercooler would just be that much cooler!! haha that a good thing!! it would just melt though because the hot turbo air would definitely be higher than 32 degrees.

On a big side note! i dont run hard at all in the winter! my tune is for summer gas and winter gas is horrible. you'll be putting your motor in danger running a summer tune with winter gas. i just take it real easy.

Simple answer. Running it at max maxing out the injector duty cycle over 90% for a extended portion of time will likely cause the injector to die quicker and it could cause lean conditions if not enough fuel comes out because there is no room for adjustment/compensation.

Ok the greddy exhaust is 70mm or 2.75 inch and was wondering how much of a hindrance that is or if that the .25 inches is negligible. From what I know it's ok but I was wondering what you guys thought. Thanks a lot!
