Re: TMIC OR FMIC

unless you change the turbo stay top mount. front mount will struggle with a TD04 because of how small it is

issue is driveablilty. im a big fan of front mounts, as you prob know lol, but on a TD04 they tend to struggle repsonce and lag wise due to the small size. also theres a risk that it will need mapping once its fitted. if you doing that may as well do front mount, turbo and remap.

also the remap results will be limited by the turbo still anyway
