you will have a cooler intake charge. ive seen many cars on here at stage 2 levels still with the stock tmic. you start having issues at near 20 psi boost levels with the stocker seperating at the crimp on the core. im running 22 psi on my stage 3 vf52 swap . im using a perrin tmic for about 4 years. a turbo blanket used in conjunction keeps under hood temps much lower as well. dont forget, your tmic is above your turbo. if i did this all over again, i would have gotten a pw tmic over the perrin. i like the design better and it comes with a hood splitter.
