No need to rub it in Matt. Like I said the FMIC will eventually go in, and it WILL be an APS unit.

I dont plan on going rated (at this point at least), but do plan on actually going the FMIC (which I used to be totally against) route to open up my turbo to its full extent.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. But if I can find someone who I can get inspection stickers I would rather spend like 400 bucks less get a regular DP and a protune for about the same price. So we shall see.

Thanks for the rec.

I am STRONGLY against FMICs on our cars unless you have an ENORMOUS turbo. TMIC > FMIC unless the TMIC physically can not keep up and handle the power. Why do you want slower response?

I cant count how many people i see with FMICs on their stock/16g/18g setups, and all i can think of is why? I just laugh knowing my TMIC is giving me better performance. to each their own

I will be able to max out my TurboXS TMIC on the 20G easily, epsecially after my engine build and headers and all those goodies.
