I was reading up on the FMIC vs the TMIC and everyone seems to agree across the board that the TMIC is better in the overall stance that it's shorter tubing and so everything can be maintained cooler, especially if you throw in an alcohol injector.
But the reviews I've all read ALSO say that the if you've got a TMIC, the best thing to kill off the heat soak from the motor ... is ... SURPRISE, Gen 2—A hood scoop.
The cost of a hood is the same cost as a CX Racing FMIC. The turbo lag only accounts for 400-800RPMs, from what I've been reading through on all the sites I can get my hands on, so I'm not really sure which route to take.
A new hood or FMIC. Lol. The FMIC I'm looking at also has an added BOV, but it will be changed eventually regardless.
Tomorrow is Install day.
I got a COBB (black) Engine Mount. Which I'm sorely disappointed that I didn't get any auto-stickers or shit with the box. 160 bucks for a mount is a bit retarded, personally. The least they could have done was throw in something not as worthless as a "thanks for buying our shit" index card...
I also got 10' of 8 gauge grounding wire and the Turbo Intake.
I see what you are talking about. How do you remove those without having to do touch up paint because of discoloration from ... 6 years?
I originally thought you were talking about the skirts, which is why I was confused. I never thought about removing the pin mold.
