Default feel no pain mixed toughness

Hi Can anyone tell me if their is a rule that prevents a character in a mixed toughness unit from using the unit's higher toughness to avoid instant death negating his Feel No Pain roll. E.G. Blood Angel Corbulo in a bike unit, gets hit by a str 8 attack which would normally bypass his FNP, but because the majority toughness is 5 he gets to make a FNP roll.
Looked at the FNP rule and it makes no mention of only working on unmodified toughness and looked at the mixed toughness rule and again no mention. I ask, as someone has told me it does work on unmodified toughness. Thanks for any replies in advance.

You would use each models toughness seperately when it comes to wounds that would cause ID. In this case Brother Corbulo would be wrecked by a STR 8 hit, but the bikers would be able to role their FNP as it is not double toughness.

ID comes in when an unsaved wound is allocated to the model so in that particular case the actual model's T would be used, like OIIIIIIO (1,2,3,4,5,6 I's ... got it!) says

The only way Corbulo survives is by using Lo,S to shift the wound onto a bike. Majority Toughnesd only applies for rolling to wound, which S 8 needs 2+ to wound either way. Rules using unmodified Toughness don't exist anymore; the was 5th Ed.
