I do suggest a quality tmic replacement though. Your POS stocker will leak soon, as do all the plastic end tanked ones.
I got mine because of towing my boat on the highway. It did it's job well. I am seriously considering removing the FMIC now that the subaru isn't the tow vehicle anymore.

How does an fmic help tow a boat? Was your charge air heating up too much from consistent high load?

Yes. It doesn't take much to heatsoak that tiny plastic TMIC even at highway speeds, when you basically are under constant positive pressure for 60 miles or so.

Plus I had the money at the time and got in on the initial itsme? FMIC groupbuy.

Meh, that's probably what you would get if you towed it with a big diesel truck. Not as bad as I thought.

I get better than that towing my boat with my Tundra, but it's not a really big boat.


What was this thread about again?

Is the tundra as fun as a 'stage 2' subaru for daily driving?

But yeah, hoping to get better towing MPG with the Rav4.
