Default What should I do first? Turbo, or FMIC setup?

Well, heres the deal.

Cash this summer is going to be a little tight, I'm going to go stage4 over the summer, i've currently got a full TBE, Utec, and Perrin short ram.

I want to get a large spearco core, front bumper, and pipes. (Do my own FMIC)

I also want to chop my injectors and bolt up a FP 18G. I've already got a walbro in there, so theres plenty of flow.

I'm torn between doing the FMIC and Bumper first, or the Turbo.

What do you think I should do first? Originally, I was thinking about going with the bumper and intercooler first, But after reading a post Phil made in the Proven Power Bragging forum, It got me thinking that I should go turbo first. The post generally said how Phil made 315whp on a PE1820 with the Stock intercooler and a Unichip a while back. This all on pump gas. Got me to thinking maybe I should get the turbo first, and do the intercooler and bumper later this summer.

I'll be happy with 280whp on a bad (but safe) tune, until the intercooler comes along.

Now, what do you guys think?

I think you will be fine with the 1820 and stock IC but you'll probably be around 280-290whp on pump gas with the stock IC. My freind made alittle over 300whp on a dynojet with pe650s/1820 and txs TMIC on 94 octane

If you do the fmic before you do the turbo you might want to put the injecotrs on too. Some of the cars here in the NW using the stock turbo with a big fmic are having problems running lean.

I'd be happy with that, Should be fine with the injector mod and an 18G i'm sure.. Now, to scrounge up the cash, people have been getting them for $820ish right?

I would do turbo, then fmic. Get more power now and then add even more later.
