***Something that helped me talk myself into spending that much on a fmic was I live in Socal so it is always hot and a fmic would cool my motor better and have less chance of heat soak. Just yesterday it was almost 80 degress...
****I eventually want to go to a bigger turbo and because I have an 08+ WRX the motor layout is a lot different and the stock location turbos are super limited. By going fmic I can run any stock location turbo the the previous gen WRX/STI can. So that was also something I took into consideration, so I spread the cost out. Because right now all I would need is larger injectors for a bigger turbo...
