Talking Turbo advice needed

Well, this June I am turbocharging my 2K1 2.5RS. I've been talking to a few turbo RS owners, and reading alot of messages about turbo subarus, and I got a question.

Is is possible, and/or reasonable performance wise, to have a FRONT MOUNT IC and an atmospheric dump? I heard that atmo dump is really unhealthy for the power.

I don't particularly like the top mount JC sports kit.

Thanks in advance.

This should be in the turbo forum. Seek in there and ye shall find.

Someone had the wastegate dump (not the BOV) to the atmosphere and said it did not work well for him and was LOUD.

There's some discussion on FMIC's, too.

Top mount provides a shorter path. And, search on JCSports, too. In there and in the vendor classifieds. And in the general.

An informed buyer is a better buyer.

Out of personal experience, I would only recommend going w/ a FMIC if you're running lots of boost and a big turbo. Otherwise, the there'd be too much pressure drop to realize the effectiveness of a FMIC.
