I've PM him, and I'm affraid I'm on a tight budget, so I'm trying to avoid the costly $1,000 price tag.

I would also get a wideband too. But some are not anal like me. But if anyone wants to go that way I found a hit on the dynojet commander wide band and this place has the cheapest price in the USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

gordon (aussieGTO) is fabbing up a FMIC setup for his son nathan's car. it's not a GTO but i can't imagine a GTO being worse than a 240sx with a SR20-DET swap. i'm pretty sure he'll help ya out... and he's over in seminole county. shoot me a PM and i'll get in touch with him.

Great If, I'm going to do this I need all The help I can get to make it as cheap but effective as possibe. Readhttp://www.ls2gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=104308 for details

I'm straped for cash but too ignorant to quit at the moment:drink:

Also in relation to the original post, the BOV is an HKS SSQV and retails for $289http://www.jscspeed.com/wrx/bov/hks_bovk.htm and the Boost Controllers go for $115.
But the real question is If I were to risk buying it can they be mounted on the STS kit itself, in place of the original kit's upgrades.

Well honestly here in va 757 area there are plenty of tuners (what most on this website would call ricers :rolleyes: ) who opt for ebay stuff.. I know of quite a few that have ordered FMIC's off ebay, including some that ordered turbo manifolds off there and they have nothing but good things to say about them..

1000 for FMIC is crazy.. I'd go ebay before that.. I mean I'd rather spend 100-200 first then 1000 right off the bat.. Besides if it doesn't work for ya.. flip and sell it back on ebay :turbonaug
