Default Time go get serious...MS parallel?

So as you can see in my signature I am running a voo-doo box. My car is respectively fast, and it is super dependable. I never have a problem with it starting hard or running like ****, but I am limited to only 7psi. I want more. So before I go right ahead and jump into buying all kinds of ****, I need research and cost figures. I want to make 240rwhp somewhere in the 11-13psi range. Since my car is a 99 I was thinking of running a MS parallel setup. Which do I buy? The MS1 or the MS 2? Who knows in detail how to wire this thing up? What size injectors do I need? What will the total upgrade, (MS, injectors, boost control, etc.) cost me? Will my car still be the dependable street car it is now? I want to make more power, but I don't want to lose the friendlyness that my car has...Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thirdgen, go MS you won't regret it.

What I think you would need:

- 550 cc high impedance injectors
- 190 lph high pressure Walbro (some may disagree but to me that $90 is money well spent)
- MS (I suggest you convince Chad to build you one since he has one in his 99 ). I don't know if he'll have the time to do it now that he's started a new job. If I were you I'd ask him anyways.
- IAT sensor
- Wiring harness

I don't think you'll need anything else but let's wait for the gurus to chime in.

I can help you with the build. I don't have time to build them for people right now though, sorry.

Just buy an MS-I and put a Cas on where your blockoff plate is...then basically its the same as installing MS on an NA. I don't know why I went MS-II... I can't get this **** working!!!!!!!!!!!
