Default Raccoon Damage - Mods Coming - 05-20-2019, 02:53 PM

Recently I hit a raccoon at highway speeds.

What should I expect with a charge pipe, 5" FMIC and JB4 (map 1)?

I will now buy a 5" VRSF to repair the damaged stock piece. My car already has an Evolution Racewerks charge pipe. I will soon buy a JB4 and plan to run Map 1.

P.S. This is my first post on this forum.

FMIC / CP = no power gain,
Stock charge pipe will eventually break
Stock FMIC really bad heat soak

Personally looking back I wish I went straight to Race FMIC, 7.5 comp recently just came out, went from 5 to currently 7 HD
Depending on your end goal will decide which FMIC you go with
I would stay away from oem couplers

VRSF 7 HD does well but for the money I should have gone with the 7.5 Race either Phoenix / VRSF / PSP your choice,
5 stepped 399$
7.5 comp 479$
7.5 race 549$
7.5 Race 499$+59$ J pipe
Out of Stock
