    Intake and downpipe or FMIC next???

    I have a 2016 st. The only performance mods I have are the Borla catback, and a ts bov. I'm just wondering...I want to buy and intake, and a downpipe, and a cobb accesport next, but then I'll have all the bolt ons besides a big turbo and the FMIC. My question is, would it be already to do these upgrades before getting a new FMIC??? I know they help keep cooler temps I just dont know. Please help thanks!!

    Intake and intercooler, then downpipe would be my recommendation.... how do you like the BOV? I was tempted but my car is pretty loud with the turboback exhaust so I am not sure if I want to draw any more attention

    FMIC!!!! This has been extensively covered on this site. The OEM FMIC is complete garbage, not only does it rob power, but its a contributor to engine failure due to excessive intake temps and poor driving judgement.

    FMIC!!! Do it right.

    Thanks for the advice man. I'm still pretty new to this stuff. I was thinking I'm gonna the cobb fmic when I do. I notice a lot of them are half the price, but don't come with bigger pipes or something??

    Well, I think the COBB requires some hole drilling, and honestly you won't see much of a benefit of bigger pipes unless you go big turbo. Check out the FMIC thread and you will find the same reasoning.

    I definitely agree that the FMIC is a must before the downpipe though!

    The bigger pipes won't do anything for you unless you're going big turbo. The stock pipes outflow the turbo as it is. I'd save money and not go Cobb because the Cobb unit is actually rather small opposed to CPE/Depo Racing/Steeda (Steeda is CPE made) and others which are WAY cheaper. Shop around.

    Edit: Also, the 3 I named and most others do NOT require drilling or modification. Take the stock off and put the new on. Simple process.

    1. RS air box
    2. Intercooler
    3. Downpipe / AP3

    Id do #3 at the same time, otherwise, it will require a retune if you add the downpipe after you installed an AP3. #1 and 2 will work on stock tune fine.
