Default 14b+emanage = CHEAP

so i have the chance to pickup a nearly complete turbo kit for 600$ it includes a turbo(genuine), manifold, downpipe, intercooler setup, emanage, injectors, and blowoff valve. I know i will still need a AFPR,wbo2,and boost gauge, but outside of those items what else would be needed to make this kit complete? can emanage produce 180-200whp?

If you are fully committed to learning how to put together and tune a turbocharged car, go ahead and pick up the kit. And then read. And read some more. Then, after that, read a bit more.

a proper standalone, wideband, oil and water lines, exhaust and a boost gauge

sounds like a really good deal, though. is it a complete piece of crap?

I'd say your only factor on how much power you make would be the injector size, people have made over 200hp with the 14b.

stock 1.6, 14b turbo, 230whp 14psi

I have experience with turbo and tuning a car, i was making this thread to kind of make sure i am not overlooking anything. the injectors are 305cc that it comes with, and i realize those injectors wont cut it, but i was more concerned with the emanage unit.

yes the emanage can do the tuning you will need as long as your fuel system and engine supports your goals
180-200whp should be doable. friend has a supercharged 1.8 pushing 180whp on a greddy emanage
