you will have to get tuning done to the car... Your car will likely be slower and not really feel right after you install the fmic actually.

when I got my FMIC installed without tuning, I went from having 290whp to being unable to keep up with my good friend's stock Acura TL...

there is no need for a fmic unless you're doing a turbo swap and at that point, yes, you will need to have the car tuned.
