actually, there is alot of evidence pointing toward NOT using a FMIC for turbos on the smaller side (smaller than the fp green ish).

fmic's, being heavier, for one, and decreasing the response time of these smaller turbos has been understood to actually make cars slower. let alone all the hassle of all the boost leaks you can have.

< i have a fmic, on a vf30. why? my car never came with a hood scoop, and thats how the original owner fixed the problem. at these power levels it is not really necessary to have a fmic.
