Why are you posting in the 2.0 section? How do you know your boost controller quit working?

are you running a catless downpipe? You're likely going to receive more flaming than useful information as you posted in the wrong section. If you're planning on any other mods do them now. A tune runs $300+. You don't wanna have to retune for every little mod. As for the EBCS, good luck running it without a tune.

1) All FMICs fit differently, pick the FMIC first, then find an intake that fits with it (you may have to email the manufacturer).

2) A FMIC is a waste of money unless you've swapped to a much larger turbo

3) Overboosting doesn't necessarily mean the ebcs is bad, it could just mean the tune needs adjustment. What tune are you currently running?

1. Call vendor. State which FMIC you want and ask what intake fits with it as I could list the 134 different FMICs and the 643 different intakes that fit them and it would do you no good as you should buy the FMIC first, THEN buy which intake fits in, not the other way around.
2. Read the sticky threads at the top of the forum.
3. I pray to Vishnu that you have engine management and a tuner, if you don't I feel sorry for your wallet as your engine will blow very soon.

The factory BCS on these are plenty good until someone wants to go big power. I fear his engine is already a dead boxer walking. A 2012 at that.....Vishnu huh? I'll give that a shot too.
