Absolutely NOT. FMU's are not good for that much psi. I don't think they are good for anything and would never use one. If you do go with a an FMU I wouldn't exceed 5 psi. If you are new to this please look into chipping your ECU.

I ran a FMU for 2 years at 6-8lbs with no problems. Is it the best way to go? No. Will it work? Yes.

IMO the FMU is a better solution than the Hack.

I would however recommend looking into getting your ECU chipped or chipping it yourself. Let me know if you need any help with that.

Sell the FMU on Ebay, buy an ECU (or chip the one you have if possible) and chipping kit and you arent out any money.

Fmu's work for simple applications but with so mnay options like chipped ecu's there is really no reason to go the route. If you are set on it make sure you have an upgraded fuel pump. Most fmu's set ups fail due to the high pressure the fmu requires and the factory pump cant keep up causing a lean condition.
