Hey Earth0,
It has been almost a year since you upgraded your car with the Dom 1.5 turbo. Wanted to check in and get your feedback as to how you're pleased with it, any tips for another member who is considering an aftermarket turbo etc. How many miles have you posted, any problems?
Also you are e85 right, I'd be interested in learning your dyno numbers on e85 and 91/93.

Thanks in advance.

For people that have the Dom 1.5xtr or similar turbo is it recommended to upgrade the TMIC, and optional FMIC ... or is it recommended to do both FMIC and TMIC. What would one loose in performance or reliability if only the TMIC was upgraded / or FMIC put in but kept the stock TMIC.
Also, does upgrading FMIC and/or TMIC require a tune?

You either have a front mount or top mount, not both. Since you are in Texas go Front mount as it is hot and you do not want heat soak in 110+ weather.

Really? I'll have to check with my shop as to why they listed both on the estimate.

I always figured it was only worth it to go FMIC if you went rotated.
