OMGHi2U Fuel Injector Clinic?

More specifically FIC1200cc is what I'm eyeing. Whats your take on FIC injectors? I see alot of high hp drag cars running them. They seem to have a ton of data and looks to be sophisticated tech behind flow matching.

Some tuners that I have spoken to recommend them. Others recommend ID over them. Are they comparable to ID? They are a bit cheaper and seem like a good option.

For those running them whats your take? How many miles have you put on them? Whats drivability and tunability like with them and would you recommend them?

I currently run ID1050x top feed conversion on my 04 and looking to possibly switch over to FIC1200 and a slightly bigger turbo on flex.

Gotcha, any input as to how these FICs compare to ID? Theyre significantly cheaper and seem to be getting more popular.

What injector brand/type/size you buy is a tuner only question. Not the internet. Not your cousin Jimmy. Not me. Your. Tuner. Only. If he says buy 2002 Diahatsu Charade injectors and have them installed, that's exactly what you do.

This advice is not me being cute. Think I'm lying? Ask your tuner if my advice is great.

So asking for feedback on a certain brand of injector isn't advisable on a public forum... Gotcha.

hes not saying its not advisable but you should always ask you tuner as to what he is comfortable with. Id have a wierd issue and it is why they run so good at idle. they need to be re mapped. cause they run lean on the lower roms and richer on the higher rpms. one of the tuner i used didnt feel comfortable with them so he told me to buy rc engineering injectors cause that is what he felt comfortable with.
BTW I dont know much about FIC but ID at 1300 and up run stainless internals and that is why they are so much more expensive and run alot better
