FMIC or TMIC

Recommended Posts

Hey fellas,

Thinking of upgrading my intercooler on my 2006 N70 3.0L hilux before getting it tuned. Tossing up between lengendex top mount or PSICO front mount. I was thinking top mount (with fan) would be better for 4x4ing, fan used for slow 4x4ing, there would also be less chance of it getting clogged with mud, sticks etc, and more protected than FMIC. But I have been told you can get better power gains out of front mount. If any could shed some light, that would be great.

cheers

A mate of mine runs the PSICO front mount on his 2012 model and has gone 4x4ing a heap of times since and has had no issues with it at all. It's all personal preference really as either upgrade will benefit with the tune as well. TMIC usually benefit with being more efficient seeing as the pipe length is shorter and with the scoop air is directed straight into it but they are prone to absorbing more heat.
