In the next couple weeks I'm going to have installed a Rouch intake, AP, COBB RMM, CJ Pony Parts Down Pipe, and an Injen CBE.

Cobb states that "The Stage 3 Power Package Includes: Accessport, Intake, Rear Motor Mount, FMIC, Cat-Back, Downpipe, COBB Badge." and that "The Stage 2 Power Package Includes: Accessport, Intake, Rear Motor Mount, FMIC, COBB Badge"

I won't be getting my C-pe FMIC for about 1.5-2 months. I was wondering with the OTS tune from cobb, would it be better to run the Stage 2 93oct map, or the Stage 3 93oct map? At least until I get my FMIC installed and get a protune done.

Thanks in advance.

The FMIC doesn't give you more power, it just makes sure the power you do make stays consistent. So personally I don't think it would be a problem for a couple months to run the stage 3 as long as you have the other requirements for it.

I'd stick with Stage 2 for a few months for peace of mind, instead of flirting with too much knock from high charge temps and too much advance in timing.

I also hate to wait lol. But I'd say stage 2 until you get the FMIC and then go stage 3.

Thanks for your input guys, I think I'm going to be sticking with Stage 2, sadly, just to be safe. :sad:
