Just installed 5"ets fmic

Well I finally got around to installing my 5" ets fmic and I'm now running stage 1+ fmic agg. The car feels great. Before installing the new fmic I checked my iat's with the stock fmic with just one 3-4 gear pull I would see my iat's rise about 20 degrees. Now with the new fmic with the same pull I see a 5 degree climb and the recovery is great. When cruising around what should your iat's be above ambient temp? The other day with 30 degree temps outside my iat's were about 45-50 degrees just cruising around. Though when I do sit in traffic they do start to come up because of heat soak. When driving the car hard with some pulls back to back I would say the iat's run about 25-35 degrees above ambient, does this sound about right for the 5" ets fmic?

Oh yea, stg1+ can target pretty aggressively, it blows stg1 out of the water. Stronger than normal stg2 as well.

Yeah I would say you feel a little more power, it noticeable. I think I see about 1-2 # of boost more in the midrange. I will go back to where I dynod the car to see if there was a increase in power, I know weather may also play a factor as in its real cold right now. When I baselined my car and then ran stage 1 agg I made about 70 whp more than stock in about 50 degree weather. I will post my results when I get a chance to hit the dyno again.

Wow I would think thats high but then again it is cold here in the northeast. I guess I will have to wait to see where my new iat's in the scorching summer heat will be at. Thanks Jeff

I think it made like 259 awhp stock and then 327 awhp stg 1 agg. with little to no time to adapt, don't know if that would make a difference though? I'll try to find my dyno graphs and post them. Like I said I will deff. post the new graph when I hit the dyno again, I also have a cai now too. I don't think the cai will make a big gain but it all helps I guess and the fact that I just changed my plugs about 1000 miles ago. I think that was the first time the plugs have ever been changed and the car has 47000 miles. So the first time I hit the dyno with just stg1 it was on old original plugs I think?

Intercoolers def give you more gains than an exhaust system as the factory exhaust isnt "horrible" whatsoever.
