Default modifications to utec map for fmic

hi,
i will be installing a APS DR 725 FMIC and APS CAI to my car next week. Up to now i was running stock with a HKS Carbon Ti catback, Perrin downpipe, Gt spec. headers, HKS iridiums and maybe some more things i don't remember right now. Anyways, I'm using TXS base map 3 with some custom tune. I am running on 98+ luckily. What changes shall i be making on the map after installing FMIC and CAI ???

also you can't use a CAI and the FMIC just a short ram as they would both try to go through the same fendor hole

Unless APS changed something for the DR725 FMIC, they should go through different holes. The I/C piping will go through the front most holes, and the intake will very snuggly fit through the rearmost hole on its respective side. That's how APS designed it.

No. Not without proper modification.

Yes the intake and FMIC will throw off the stage 2 or 3 map. So does the FMIC as generally the timing is less than a TMIC. You will need a tune no matter what map you start at so just pick your poison to get it running and take it easy until the tune.
