    Question FMIC or PE?

    Should I get a FMIC or PE system for my next mod? (I am only doing 1 mod/year as to save money)

    My car is a daily driver; I do not track my car at all. What do you guys think?

    HAHA, i wish that were the solution! Waiting on the BB flash to be released. If I use it, I'll probably get a FMIC?

    Your car will benefit more from an aftermarket FMIC. It's what I'll be getting next.

    PE sounds magnifecent but the FMIC will give you more repeatable power. Which more important to you?

    I think I will be going with a FMIC first, especially with the open source tune coming out tomorrow!!
    I think something along the lines of VRSF or something cheap, especially since I don't plan on tracking the car as it is a daily driver.


    But I was debating between PE or Corsa next!

    FMIC any day. Exhaust should be probably your last upgrade since the stock one (with upgraded DPs) can support tons of power.
