    I 'm very interested to hear how much a difference a big FMIC makes on a JB4 tune only N54

    Well, initially I was going with the ETS, but saw that the AMS fmic wasn't much different. Also, no need to cut any metal. Mainly, I got a good price on it from the original owner Click here to enlarge

    I assume you will have to mess with the stock plumbing? Replace clamps and hoses? This is the reason why I would favor getting the HPF IC, direct bolt on to stock plumbing, but damn that thing is kindda pricey!

    The clamps and such will be provided, no replacements afaik. I think there is like 1" of plastic I might have to cut. I'll see when I get it in next week, you guys will know Click here to enlarge

    anyone know the p/n for the plastic piece that needs to be trimmed with most of these FMIC? I'm considering the HPF unit for the ease of swapping, but I want to be able replace the plastic that gets hacked up for when it goes back to stock. Can't seem to find a pic of it on realoem.com

    Thanks, I've spent a good 10 minutes looking through the 41- and 51- group p/n's and can't find shieeet... I'm guessing that it might be considered part of the bumper and w/o an individual p/n

    Possible. I might take the bumper off if needed to install, but more than likely on it will be on floor jacks
