actually.. to answer some of these do i need an intake or fmic to get 400whp questions, just take a look at the litchfield type 25. http://www.evo.co.uk/carreviews/evoc...d_type_25.html
Granted I cant be sure it is crank and not whp but it goes a long way in explaining where you can go with the stock intake and tmic.
Having said that, yes changing the intake would free up extra horses but/and the transition would take place somewhere around 400whp. It is a question of whether you wanna spend the cash or have it to spend on that intake.
As for the FMIC, well, if you intend to change to a FMIC, you WILL have to change the intake. Besides that, you would have to contend with the increase in water temps due to the blocked radiator as well as a measure of turbo lag. You would also have to get a turbo that complements the FMIC core. But yes, you would be able to get extra ponies on an FMIC but most likely only if you get a road tune, not a dyno, as the dyno fan wont be able to simulate the extra cooling an FMIC gets.

On the one hand, noobies need to be a little realistic as to the horsepower goals and costs but it is most certainly a growth process where more knowledge and research will allow you to understand better. Going to the track (or rally or whatever you want your car to do) a couple of times would also help prioritise your build and allow you to be more focused on what you really need and when. Needless to say, I dont think modding belongs to the street if one intends to show off his new found power and wreck his car and other people's lives.

Still on the other side of things, if you are serious about modding and have a passion for it, dont let what others say discourage you. Go for it. One step at a time and dont overextend yourself financially or physically. Know your limits. If we dont pursue our passions, we will never know whether we could have gotten there.
