    Right or wrong?

    Just like some of your honest opinions on a situation.

    Assume you paid a tuner to do a complete big turbo conversion on your car, and also specified that you wanted a FMIC fitted.

    Would one expect the tuner to have replaced the rubber top hoses going from the turbo pipe (which is part of the big turbo kit) to the FMIC and from the FMIC to the inlet manifold to be included as part of the conversion?

    I have been recommended to replace the top hoses into and from the FMIC by the tuner about 3 - 4k miles of driving.

    However, I would've expected them to be been replaced as part of the conversion, instead of using the existing oem hoses.

    Fair play by the tuners?

    Thoughts welcome.

    If uprated hoses is not part of the FMIC kit, then the answer is no Glen. FMIC and Big Turbo is 2 seperate jobs, you may have saved yourself a bit of labour by having them both done at the same time.
