Quick question. On automatic supras, do FMIC's cause a noticeable increase in turbo lag? I've heard that there is a material increase in lag because of the time required to fill the volume of the larger IC and this lag increase is felt more on automatics than on manuals, is this true?

Also, is it true that to install a FMIC, some of the stock fans must be removed and so this lowers cooling efficiency, and is it true that the FMIC blocks airflow to the radiator?

I think supraforums should only have 3 questions when you come to the site:

Will my intercooler increase lag.
Can i buy an auto and switch to 6spd.
Should I buy an n/a and switch it to TT?

That or not allow anyone whos hasnt been here for atleast one year to post, only use the search button. You type in supraforums.com, you see a red serch button, thats it.


And to answer your question, that is covered 3 times just on the 1st page, You will not notice any real increse in lag at all, probably wont notice too much power gain either. It does increase lag, but not noticeable, it does make more power, but not noticeable(except after the stock IC gets heatsoaked). And an auto has nothing to do with anything that is crankcase forward.

....and yes there is a fan you remove if your an automatic and a FMIC blocks air to the radiator. Just get a Spal push fan to restore air flow. Some members have reported not replacing the fan and had no problems with it.

Don't forget the ever popular:

Which blowoff sound is best?
Which is faster 6-speed or auto?
Is this Supra for sale in Latvia for $500 a scam?

I have to agree with ScrewDrvr, there needs to be some period of time that new members can not post, or perhaps first require a post count of XXX in the New Members Forum. Because not only are the same questions asked every day, the same questions are asked by 5 different people within the same hour. Ultimately this turns off the knowledgeable folks who really contribute and you're left with newbie non-Supra owners advising each other about a car they don't even own.

I agree so much with you. There have been POINTLESS questions lately and newbies with such a high post count. What the hell do they post about?? Sit back and use the damn search button and read.

You guys are scaring away the "knowledgeable" supra owners. Just look at the post on this page. Most are from 05 members.

new members section? I've never even posted there. Unfortunately you can't make a common sense requirement.

no it wasn't addressed to you SupraMan1990... look above your post it addressed to Kevinb6786... i'm telling the guy to search just like ScrewDrvr told him too... on top of that ScrewDrvr even told him his answer to his intercooler questions and he has to be a smart ass by replying and saying "Oh you mad.. Get Red" then when i tell him to search and ive been here since 2002 and i told him i'm not even worried abt post counts just search and he Replies back "Bobby Get Mad Real Mad" you know were not even mad but his maturity level just sucks... anyways im done with this post im out i've already reported it to the mods let them deal with his sarcasm

Yep, but then again. Half of the people in the SF member list are either: Immature, morons, or people that have never posted. Only about 5% of the other half actually post things that are worth while.
