Aps Tmic

Does anyone know anything about the APS TMIC. Anyone have it. I just got a 2005 WRX and want to get more power. TMIC is not going to be my first mod but i want to get the most research done so i can set a plan for myself.

APS makes great stuff. I went from a Hyperflow (TurboXS) FMIC to an APS DR650 FMIC. With no changes to any map settings I went from a peak boost of 18 psi to 21-22 psi.

After literally 2-3 seconds of driving, the intercooler went back to normal operating temperature after being stopped in 90 degree weather.
Were you measuring surface temp or intake temp?

We were measuring the surface temp with those thermometers, but also kept an eye on intake temperatures via the UTEC dashboard.

That is either very impressive or very wek on TXS' part. I would now be very interested to see how much pressure loss a TXS fmic settup gives. Cosmo: I know you have had the VF34 with a TMIC some time ago, i am wondering (if you still have a similar turbo/settup) how your spool is with the APS FMIC compared to yoru old TMIC settup.

I think it's just that the APS is that much better.

I still have the VF34, and spool time with the APS FMIC is just about the same as the TMIC I had from what I can remember. Of course, my car goes through plenty of changes during the course of a year, so it's hard to say exactly.
