Longer term stg 1 w/o FMIC

Anyone been running stg1 on either the main two tunes w/o a FMIC?

Any issues?

Thanks

No issues with BM3 Stage 1 on stock IC in the past 6 months.

Stage 1 with stock IC will be fine. I ran stage 2+ with stock intercooler for a few weeks before I upgraded and never had problems. It's not recommended but as long as you watch your IAT's and don't push it super hard or do multiple pulls at once you'll be alright.

Depends where you live too. If you're up north and it's 30 degrees go for it. If you're in FL and it's 85 then you'll get heat soaked real quick

When you do not have an upgraded FMIC, intake air temps rise so ECU cuts power to protect the engine.

You wont have any CEL light if that is what you are asking about but the car is not making stage 1 power. Same car with same tune and a quality intercooler will be noticeably faster than your car
