I have heard/read many comments on the Apexi unit with stock twins. Most all of them were very happy with the results from adding the Apexi FMIC.
Just about all of the comments I have heard about running aftermarket FMICs with the stock twins have been positive. Most claim that the car is better able to hold peak rwhp to redline. Usually, the stock twins peak and then hp drops pretty dramatically towards redline.
Most common complaints with the Apexi FMIC are that it is smaller than the Greddy FMICs and the larger HKS units. Also, it doesn't come with the upper hard pipes.
I'll bet that you will be pretty happy with the performance gains you will get with the FMIC.
I've got the apex and don't have any real complaints. It was a pain in the ass to get the driver side piping to reach up to the TB (might have been because of the hardpipe from the blitz BOV kit) but all in all the install wasn't too bad.
It would've been nice if it came with the upper pipes. The core also sits pretty low.
but as someone else mentioned, it sits really low, so low in fact that I cracked one of the mounting tabs. I hit a parking pylon at very very low speed, and nonetheless, it cracked the fmic, had to take it out and get a shop to weld the crack
Are you guys using a sensor ground for your bcc or chassis ground? I don't want to cut my harness so came up with this rough contraption. Something so simple yet 14-15 lbs boosts cuts every time. I started at 4.30v, kept turning it down after pulls to see if that was the case and nope still...
Will be installing 272 BC cams, springs, retainers, keepers and of course those pesky oem seals.
Still a bit confused on when I need to put motor at TDC since I am doing the "rope trick" does this matter?
So would you do shimless buckets like this?
Please correct if wrong.
So my odometer stopped working and i have resoldered it 2 times and everytime, it starts counting for about 5km and then stopps again. I have done the splice mod on the connector on the back also have tried putting it back to original and also tried removing my speedo converter but it didnt...
