I'm very new to all this so be gentle
Installed an FM II Turbo system (new then) on my 16k original miles 2001 last year. Turbo is a 2560. Also installed 3" Enthuza exhaust from downpipe back. ACT clutch installed at 10k miles. Only installed mechanicals. Didn't know what would be best for electronics at the time. Car has been driven up and down private road to keep lubed. Car is registered in MA where they plug in to OBD II every year or two.
At this point, I'm thinking I would shoot for whp of 210-220. Is that reasonable given above? Will I need bigger injectors?
I now have time to finish car and install engine controls. Is the Hydra the best option? Is it too cumbersome to do work around once a year for inspection (I pulled my engine and tranny to do turbo install, so I'm not afraid of some work).
What are major pros and cons with Hydra (version 2.6 I guess is the current one)? If you had to do all over again, would you do the Hydra again? If not Hydra what would be second choice? What's up with the WBO2 sensor? I read FM's manual last night and they said it costs $275 for replacement of the "lab grade" sensor. Can a substitute WBO2 be used now? I've got an LM-2 to use for tuning purposes and it uses a Bosch sensor, I think, that costs like 1/3 of this lab grade thingy.
Can you self-tune the Hydra starting from FM's base maps to, say 90%, of total perfomance, staying a bit conservative, or do you need to go to tuner with a dyno?
