Mike,

my car is OBDII complaint, I made my own 02 sims, and resistors for heater, plus injectors, therefore I have NO check engine light. and passed readiness test.

To the OP, your questions are on a very basic level, it shows that you have not done your research. There is a couple threads on here including MINE that give you bits of into to help aid on fabing a turbo kit. I dont think anyone will spoon feed you, unless there your close friend, pay them or exchange services. When I first asked around everyone a coupe years ago crapped on me saying "you bought turbo parts to blow up your engine" etc.

FYI I ran 5 PSI w/out a tune I don't recommend it simply because the timing is to much for F/I, your AFRs are to lean for F/I. plus you'll need bigger injectors; as the stock DME wont even let the car idle from running pig rich w/out the DME excepting the offsets, flow etc

I only used FSR just for the dyno, and a Pro efi tuner held my hand to get through it. tuning was ~600 Pro EFI + patch harness + basic kit is 3k so tune wise your going to spend $3,600 minimum

The only reason why I spent less than Nick G's kit is I fabricated most of it, without it your at least gonna spend upwards of 8k that is if its done right, and no costly mistakes or tweaking is needed.

I am only giving you hope, because at one point I was in your shoes. But please, do some digging around before you post on here.. if you don't no one will respect or help you.

Thanks for your help and opinion and yes i do know that most people around here are asshole and they don't show respect something that is valuable, but at least this is one of the descents forum that there is still people who want to help others thanks!
I will look at the site you post and make a couple call and go to dealer to see were can i find the answer to my questions with the parts and see where is the best tuning for my eurogirl without spend over 1k on it! Thanks
