looking to fit a FMIC to my classic

im currently looking to fit a FMIC on my 2000 uk turbo, one of my friends mentioned turning the inlet manifold round to allow for better air flow through the piping, can anyone verify this and maybe point me in the direction of a guide to assist me, thanks kev

sounds like your mate is on about a reverse inlet manifold...big bucks...but can get big power with right supporting mods..

no point in fitting front mount untill you change the turbo, Td04 + front mount will be laggy.

have a look at the tuning guide for best way to go

The turbo was gonna be the next stage after the FMIC, been pricing up vf30 or maybe even 34/35. Wanna get everything done before I have it remapped, thanks for the advice though
