i am going to guess that there is a misunderstanding of what the subject is. If you want run double stock boost then yes get fmic. If you want to run slightly more boost....i dont know..maybe get an ic. but yea...saying dp dont offer gains and fmic do ...yea..thats wrong.

also id add that having cats in place on a a car running real boost is going to CRUSH power. I guess that doesnt hold true for your talon but it does on most any other platforms.

are there dyno sheets that show gains of the high flow?

Highflow fabspeed catted downpipe:
+30whp/+30wftlbs on an otherwise bone stock m235i. Pretty solid comparison using the same dyno on the exact same day.

I will have my cable delivered this weekend.. my plans are to do a full review of this new flash system, but also ties perfectly into timing. I have a dyno run already planned this Saturday with my existing setup which includes the Active 8. That will give me a good baseline from bone stock a year ago, to where I am now, to a third dyno run after the Active 8 is out and the flash tune is in!

are you going to do a bone-stock run, an active 8 run, and a flash tune run on the same day? that would be sweet.

I can't do stock this weekend as I would have to spend hours taking out many components.

bone stock this time last year - 305 at the wheels.
CP, FMIC, exhaust, A8 - tbd
CP, FMIC, exhaust, flash tune - tbd

Also pending is a high flow catted DP, but don't know when I will have it.

You should get Dragy GPS Performance Meter to compare your 0-60 and 1/4 mile times
mike@x-ph.com sells it too this is as good as everyone asking for Dyno..

LOOks cool but it's more fun to go to track and do it legally for a fraction of the price.

Trust me you are doing a great job showing what needs to be done in detail and results as well! Priceless in my book and i am sure others feel the same. Do I hear a turbo upgrade in your future! Your car will be my model.

What is the benefit of running jb4 as a piggyback with this flash tune? If I want to run that setup what map do I put the jb4 on?

I don't believe you do, but that is entirely a guess.. I know in my case the Active 8 will come out.

Big Turbo, Meth injection, Port Injection, bluetooth logging capabilities... Custom Boost Mapping by RPM with adjustable Duty Cycle and Fuel Bias.
Beware BMS is working on BEF suited for stacking with JB4. It's in BETA Beware.

you put down 305 bone stock on a 435 rwd? that's pretty stout.
