havent installed mine, but from what I read over at LGT, it seems the TMIC would show more difference in high outside temperature conditions. This is going to sound stupid, but I got it more so for longevity than anything else. TMIC wouldnt the choice for those planning on going for 350+WHP.

I didnt want to start a new thread. My question is quite simple, and I'm 50% sure of the answer I have. Would installing a TMIC require a tune? Or is the tune for getting the most out of the TMIC?

I talked with Chris from perrin today about their tmic and he said that a stage 2 map would be fine with a down pipe. We didn't talk about just the tmic, a down pipe was a part of the equation.

On the Perrin post over on Nasioc on the 08+ wrx, the car will run rich with the tmic at around 2k rpm because its much more free flowing. If you are concerned, then get Perrin's stage 3 map which was created for the tmic.

you should really get a tune to get the most out of it and whatever other mods you have.

if you had the TMIC and no tune, you should have a wideband to monitor the AFR.

hmm... I wonder how long it will go on for. They already started jacking up the price, $10, not thats it's too significant to stop ppl from being.

after visiting the LGT board, it's 50/50. Some folks have no problem, others have a hard time aligning the turbo side.

The turbo side is hard to line up. It will take two people and be careful not to cross thread them and break it off like I did. Just take your time and be sure they are lined up correctly before the final tightening.

UPS just dropped off my TMIC. WTF? I asked for black, because I had seen photos and it looked like just the sides were done in black, to appear like the stock unit.

The WHOLE FREAKING THING IS BLACK. It looks AWFUL.

I'm wondering... is there any easy way to get the black powdercoating off of the face of it? Otherwise I get to spend the time and $$ to send it back and get a silver one. GRRR. I think if I have to send it back I'll just get a refund.

actually, the black TMIC is ALL black in every picture I have seen. If you have extra funds, buy from a vendor over at LGT who are selling at a discount rate, then sell the black TMIC later on.
