How important is it to run a FMIC on a 50 trim? i dont plan on running the car hard at all infact im breaking everything in, just finished rebuild on motor and what not. If i can i would like to wait a month or so before i buy a FMIC. I have all supporting mods and everything except the FMIC.
welll one thing you may want to keep in mind is that you can run the same amount of boost (stock) and will still actually flow more air (Hz) on a larger turbo... if you cant monitor knock and or intake manifold temps, it may be a good idea to run a boost source directly to your wategate to keep boost (and airflow) down....
the fmic is a supporting mod for a larger turbo... meaning it can be important, and a necessity... becarefull.
I've been in your same position, get a 50 trim. Its not to big nor to small, just right. 4g's love 50 trims, even so in completely stock form. Big fmic makes a difference along with everthing else, but you can get away with it till you can do more. My gsx on a stock motor with 130,000 and 110 psi of compression smoking like a frieght train still ripped, and spooled fast. I had the pte 5027 from extreme psi, loved it.
I wouldn't expect to push a 50trim hard with a sidemount but that isn't what you are trying to do. For the breakin you should be fine with a sidemount. Then upgrade it before you start raising boost and tuning in the WOT curves.
