Default FMU ?

Hey I'm new to the whole boost thing and i was wondering if you have to get a FMU. I already have an adjustable fuel pressure regulartor on my car. I dont plan on boosting over 6 psi for now. I did every thing so far my self and its all ready to be put on i just need to know about the FMU

okay he didn't explain it to well. u do not need an fmu if u change ur injectors/chip ur ecu. all new people start off with fmu's n they come back with stories on "why did my motor blow i was only boosting 6psi" n blah blah blah. research a lil more n try to choose another route but if u must. fmu is needed with no other management.

id think it'd be just as expensive to chip your ecu as to buy a fmu if you use uberdata or something nowadays

you could, but I'd reccomend just getting your ecu chipped and get some injectors of here. its the safe way to go.
