  • ds and cooler?

    anyone have a fmic fitted and using a dreamscience map? id like to know if it made much difference (adding the cooler) and if its worth it, thing is the ds is all the same map thats intended for a standard car or one with some mods instead of going up in stages so hasnt been specifically written to include an upgraded intercooler, whereas a st3 map has and probably ups the boost some more? im really looking to get up to the 350+ftlb mark where most stage 3 cars are and wanted to know if ill still be able to achieve this with the ds or will need to fork out for a specific stage3 map,

    any help appriciated guys...

    Well i have a DS tune and a Forge FMIC but I have to get back from overseas to install it! lol

    I have asked and DS have stated that their maps will take advantage of an intercooler so imo you would def notice a difference. Having lower inlet temperatures can only benefit your car.

    Best bet is to try it - ull notice a difference for sure. Im def not worried when installing mine and expecting a definate noticeable gain.

      There no moree boost from ST2 to ST3 iirc, it just adjusts the fueling.
      Christ if you had any more boost on yours, aren't you running something like 24psi+ already

            which tune did you get that result with and what other mods you got? i got 300ft with race plus and a magnex cat back with a precat, running stock 2nd cat though, i tried a full decat but it felt like i lost torque and i didnt like the sound either

                  It obviously does make a difference

                  Not run it yet, putting a few miles on it before I run on the road again
