A good set of headers would probably be a good idea too...nice numbers either way!

I am now basically just going to work on efficiency.
I was told that the FMIC would add almost 150or so more whp and i could also run more timing with the FMIC, so lets see

150 WHP? i think not. maybe 15-20 after tuning. add the headers too while your at it for efficiency.

+1 not 150, 15 i believe. Headers would be great. GT spec with up pipe for less than 600 FTW!

Those are very good numbers on 90 octane!
As for your future plans:
Thermal Wrap: never a bad idea, just don't expect any power gains.
Install Rear Strut brace: I have seen a number of tests that indicate they do nothing. Pick-up a 22mm rear sway instead.
Intercooler Sprayer: It can be done cheap and can make big a improvement (I saw 11 ft lbs and 12 whp)
Maybe FMIC with a 18g: You are going the exact same route I did. I gained nearly 30 whp from going to the 8cm Greddy 18G from the vf22, I decided not to go FMIC as a buddy of mine and I had similar vf22 set-ups he had FMIC and I had an ebay TMIC just like yours. We put down nearly identical power and ran almost exactly the same 1/4 mile)

If your not interested in running meth injection, my biggest recommendation would be a set of headers. Trust me they will make a huge difference on the ej205, almost 20 whp & 20 lbft with your set-up. And they can be had cheap! GT-Spec, Gruppe-S, Hell even the Megan racing and e-bay units are worth getting.

They are a bronze colour.
Not sure the actual name.
They are also 17's
I currently run Maxxis Z's 215/45 on the front and Potenza RE070 225/45 on the rear.
much better handling.
The STi suspension will make it even better

Thanks bro, the FMIC is still a thought.
The Thermal wrap is more for efficiency like the sprayer
I will also look into the 22mm rear sway and the headers.
Keep it coming guys

Those wheels do not clear Brembos. Only STI specific P1s will fit, and they are only made in 18"s.
