If your going turbo you'll be better off getting a donor car from a wrecking yard and do an engine swap.His car might be fast,but without the right injectors.etc it will not be as fast as it the engine is built to be!Plus its a whole lot cheaper than 3500 to 4000 bucks.Just make sure you get all of the turbo specific sensors and the computer.

I've thought about doing a swap but, thats alot of downtime for a daily driven car.

The problem is that you can't go much bigger (10%) on the injectors cos the ECU doesn't know how to control them.

Sure you can buy a AIC (additional injector controller) or a stand alone computer but, thats alot of money.

My solution is a Vortech FMU / boost dependent fpr.

Almost. I got the downpipe connected to the rest of the exhaust. Its quiet but, it stanks like fuel cos I don't have a cat.

I just need to mess with the rod on the wastegate. Its to tight and thats why i'm seeing 12psi of boost. I don't have the pipes connected to the turbo for now so i'm running n/a even though the turbo is spooling. Gotta mess with wastegate then i'll reconnect the pipes and adjust the BOV somemore.

LOL That's why you get the ecu for the same engine and you can do the swap in one weekend.It's the way to go,I thought the same thing until I was proved wrong.Except here they're doing it to trucks.I plan on doing mine when the engine blows in my ranger.If you're not mechanicly inclined I wouldn't suggest it!

Duh... :roll:

I dunno about one weekend unless its a HonDuh (just put in a bigger hamster).

You need more then just the engine and ECU though.
