Let's say I get the AWE K04 kit soon...I drive it around a bit, then I decide to get a FMIC. I hear there's separate programming for a K04 with FMIC. Would I be able to get it reprogrammed, or would that cost more? This wouldn't require another chip or new ECU or anything, right?

What would the HP be with the AWE K04 kit + FMIC + proper programming? Would 240+ be attainable? AWE claims 235, and that's without the FMIC.

On evoms.com, they claim that their FMIC adds 20HP. Now I know this is probably bull, but does it give maybe half that? +10 would be great still...

Your gonna gain power by going to a FMIC. I've heard the stock IC can only run 15psi before getting heatsoaked. KO4 with proper programming will push 18lbs+. The air going into the motor is going to be much cooler, making more power.

I don't know if you'll need a different program. I plain on doing a FMIC before I go KO4.

you have Tip, and I believe there is only one version for this. So get the FMIC later and have Level 10 upgrade your torque converter then you can tell GIAC to give you the FMIC supported software.

I'm in the "torque convert upgrade period" of my car.

You'll prolly put down 200ish +/- at the wheels with that setup.

200hp easy at the wheels.

which equates to @250-260hp at the crank. (26% dt loss)
