    Fmic

    Hi guys and gals

    im looking to buy a FMIC from ebay the TX/JB Motorsport ones. I havent really done much to my engine apart from stainless steel cat back system, and dv, im looking in the near future to purchase a vxr turbo, pre-cat, and a tx top hat kit. would it be ok to purchase and fit a FMIC before i have upgraded the turbo ect. will i still see benefits ect.

    Also does anyone know of any places in essex that can fit turbo's and FMIC ect

    regards

    pretty straight forward on the GSis apparently. With coupes sri's etc you need to move the rad back and stuff and trim the front bumper to fit.
