experiences good or bad please...compared to an safc and emanage blue
I am sorry but I was browsing the entire forum for information on the AEM FIC and came across this post and must clear up some point you made.what more do you want? it is garbage. the only thing aem makes electronic that is good, besides their wideband, is their ems, which I suggest going with or the stinger ems.
here is the problem with the FIC, taken from aem's website...
"The F/IC can retard timing from the factory system based on engine RPM and load inputs. This is achieved by intercepting and delaying the outputs from the cam and crank position sensors to the engine- with no adverse affect on applications equipped with variable cam timing."
A device that can only retard timing isn't going to work if you want to make power. You need to be able to advance timing, that is where you can really start making power. That is why a standalone is a better way to go.
installed and ran for a few minutes and that's it. i got it calibrated but all of a sudden just died. Sent it back today so I am S.O.L. for a while......I am picking my FIC up on Wednesday afternoon.
drewgo, how far have you gotten and what were the issues you ran into. I will probably be working on getting it installed within the next 2 weeks and hopefully get the car tuned with the 550s by the end of August.
What are your current mods and what are your goals.

My set up is good for 700 but more like 600 to be realistic.
I am not discouraging you against it. I recommend you do plenty of research and shop other form or piggy back before going with this. Simply put, there are only a few people who've had success with it. Of which I am not one...LOL
Aristo ecu running sequential injection and with a safc. No timing management just tuned conservatively in mid 11's. SAFC works and will make decent power just don't go crazy with pulling too much fuel so your timing won't retard too much. Looking to go with aem ems later on.OneJSupra what setup are you running for fuel and timing management
