Unless they've changed it in the lastest firmware update the target boost is 14psi. The FMIC adds some power, decreases turbo lag and helps avoid heat soak but there's not a stock JB4 map that will increase the boost just for installing it. One of these days I might get a custom tune...

Just found out that $5,664.00 gets you an "upgrade [that] will support 500-550WHP with quick spool and plenty of flow to redline."

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

Suspension and LSD come before more power. Actually EVERYTHING comes before more power. I'm pretty happy with the power right where it is, just waiting for further improvements in the JB4 firmware. I remember taking a car further than I should have... :wink:

I would really like to have a CF hood but they're super expensive over here as most of the companies making them seem to be in the US and no one is keen on shipping a hood APO. :rolllaugh:

This tank alone has me tempted to try meth but the car is already complicated enough for a DD. :lol:

You know I love MEth/H2O, as long as the proper safe guards are there to protect everything should it shut off!

The JB4 is supposed to be a pretty awesome meth/o2 controller...
