Awesome. Some of us don't have access to E85. The few stations up here that carried it have dropped it. So I really won't be incorporating the corn water in my plans, short or long term. My interest in FMIC is increasing, though (based on lots of reading sans real life experience, I'm leaning toward Dom1.5 w ELH). Thx guys

Sounds like a good plan. I would talk to Killer B about their spoolinator setup before deciding on a turbo though. Just to explore your options. A 3067 with the tial housing on their header/up-pipe has a lot of the benefits of rotated, will outflow a 1.5 and will probably spool just as quick.

In a similar position to a OP. My tuner is set on a FP blue top Mount setup. Says that it will be a cost effective setup that will still be fast. What do you guys think? I'm already full bolts on stock turbo including an IAG aos and i already have 1300cc injectors so im good on the fueling end too

Elh and 1.5xtr is a sweet set up. The spoolinator kit def has its benefits with the 3067 set up. And i would agree that it flows much better than anything thats is still stock location and stock subaru hotside. Keep gettin the info you need bro.

Full bolt ons, but what about the block? Are you talking about the original blue or the new htz fp blue? 1300cc may be enough, but youll need a hardwired pump to keep up the amp draw demand. What fuel do you plan to run? Meth involved? Do you have an aftermarket FPR?

Still on stock block currently and yea hes doing the hardwire kit and i have the cobb FPR. No meth but im runing E85 and yea he really wants me to get the new FP Blue that's around 800. Thinks for the price you can't go wrong. Talking to him right now about getting a top Mount overnighted flr 1300cc tune tomorrow. Any last suggestions?

I have money set aside for a block should anything happen


Update!! Went with Grimmspeed Top mount and the splitter they offer to direct airflow directly to the intercooler. Getting dyno tuned today bought some E98 to make sure i get good E level for my tune since pump by me is only 72%.

Mods for power include:
1600cc injector, aem320 fuel pump, perrin ELH, catless downpipe, greddy evo gt catback,
cai, ebcs, cobb FPR, cobb flex fuel kit, light weight crank pully,
possibly more but still stock turbo

Update on powaaa

Car made 346whp 366wtq on a Mainline dyno. It had previously made 325whp 390wtq on a different Mustang dyno.

New tune feels great makes 18.4psi until redline now so the car feels really good!!

Good choice with the intercooler! I ran the grimmspeed on my legacy gt and loved it. If and when I upgrade the top mount on my sti ill probably go with the grimmspeed again. Nice results enjoy the car!

I just ordered the PRL FMIC.

http://prlmotorsports.com/2015stifmic.aspx#.WRyDPty1uUk

https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/sho...&highlight=prl

Lots of research and good reviews. It looks like a piece of art, requires no cutting of the bumper, and comes with a crash bar. I noticed how often the TMIC gets heat soaked, even just cruising around town, etc. Forget about on the racetrack and auto-x. I figured if I'm going to mod, better do it right the first time.

My mod list:
Cobb AP
Cobb TBE
Cobb intake
3-port EBCS
Custom tuning for 93
Whiteline rear SB
RCE yellow springs
IAG AOS
PRL FMIC
Cobb turbo inlet
AEM wideband gauge
AEM oil pressure gauge

And then Cobb FF kit, 1300cc injectors and E85/FF tune next year

didnt read through all of this - but I was in your exact delima except I had a Dom 1.5 XTR.

IF I were to go back and do it again - I would have absolutly gone with the FMIC. It depends on enviornment - but here in Houston as another said - the heat soak just KILLED my times on the track and really pulled too much timing when driving on the highway in traffic.

I DID pull my IATs from the manifold with an IAT sensor so I can verify that my IATs were way too high to make good power. At the track I even went to the extreme and used dry ice blocks in the staging lanes to get my TMIC down in temp. It helped a lot - so I can only imagine that an FMIC would have been a lot better option.
