intersting question... please reply people

1. It's safer because lets say that one link in the complicated sequential system fails and #2 isn't properly prespooled and you are running twice stock boost levels. Uh oh what happens? Shaft twist of the number 2 turbo and it is now dead. That's not necessarily a bad thing because now you have an excuse for that single turbo conversion you've always wanted
2. It's more reliable. Imagine you have the stock boost levels again #1 spools and you boosting about 10psi, #2 kicks in and you go up to a whopping 11psi. Now let's say you run 22psi you shoot up to twice the boost really quick and this puts a huge stress on the turbos.
As a side note I've never heard of sudden #2 failure from someone in TTC.
LOL, I'll let Grant address this one. Basically he has some quantitative data to show until 5th gear the FMIC doesn't really help.SpdRcr0 said:Also, Im pretty sure a FMIC would only help protect the engine at high boost levels as such...
Where can I get one of these friggin things, and are they easy to install?Grant said:Make SURE and get an EGR blockoff plate.
They are very easy to install and only $15. Instructions on intallation and how to order from Mohd are at http://www.mkiv.com/techarticles/egr_mods/1/index.html.Darkgrey3K said:

is there really a need to run as high as 22psi? Personally i don't think it'll reap much extra above 18psi coz it merely overheats the air.burnmacs said:Mods I have:
Greddy Boost Guage
Manual Boost Controller
EGR Block Plate
NGK 6097 Plugs
12v Fuel Pump Mod
That's all you need to run 22psi. But it's only safe to run 18psi on pump gas on the stock twins or else you start to get a nice amount of timing retardation which does bad things in the long run.
LOL...Tell that to all the guys putting down over 450RWHP on stock twins and running mid/low 11's at over 123mph. I'm sure they'll appreciate the tech tip.ianong said:is there really a need to run as high as 22psi? Personally i don't think it'll reap much extra above 18psi coz it merely overheats the air.
Well, thats maybe coz yours have the export spec CT12b generates much less heat compared to the jap spec that i'm currently using. Thats one reason i believe why the FMIC may not be as impt for the export models. On japs, even as "low" as 19psi, it's virtually a must.markmark7 said:
