In all honesty, if the manufacturer says FMIC is required, they say that for a reason. Just get yourself an ETS 5", it's $770 and requires no cutting
Damn, that's pretty crazy. Things would probably fall off at so much boost haha don't want to spend more fixing it than the price of an IC. I was leaning toward the helix, but I would research some more about the ETS. Should I ask why, but this will probably turn into Helix vs ETS thread...oh well. Haha
