Are you recirculating or VTA on the bypass valve? Just curious because i have to get a new bov to work with a FMIC. I had an RFL and just sold it (wish i hadn't now) and have a GFB hybrid BOV for the TMIC which i can probably trade though. I wasn't aware you could keep your fogs with the godspeed setup either, so thats a plus.

Some "no name" products are good deals and some are junk.How do you know how to tell the difference?Might want to read the link I posted.
Thanks dumdum, you've been the biggest help thus far in my decisions. I'll read the link tonight. I am leaning toward the godspeed FMIC kit since a lot of people talk good about it, and it retains the same stock location for the MAF.
Heres the specs on the godspeed, seems to be matched to the turbo pretty well, since the bluch flows 600cfm, and pressure drop is very low (good as from the reading that dumdum posted), would it be a good match?:
