Alright folks, I am new around here and dont actuall have the car yet but I will be ordering the MS in a couple of days. In about 4-5 months I will be buying an NA. I am hopeing for a 95-6 but may end up with a 1.6 really depends on what I come across when I go shopping. Near as I can tell the sellers on this side of the pond are aware of the 1.8 advantage and the premuim they draw is about the same as the bigger rear end swap costs, but I digress...
In a couple of days I am going to be ordering the MS stuff to keep me busy for a few weeks building it. I am pretty much going to order all the parts Brainiac lists in his how to thread and the conector to make it a straight plug in to the factory harness. I will be going stand alone while the car is still N/A so that it is settled and running before I bolt on the turbo.
I will be going turbo pretty soon after I get the car (thats the plan at least) and I will either go BEGI s or DIY with a begi mani. in either case what else will I need? (I will get the stim)
I know I will need a wideband 02 sensor and I am going to also order a JAW from JAW
as it looks to be a good price and I am a Dealer VW tech so I have all the other needed parts already (plug and sensor).
So the real question is, aside from brainiacs list is there anything else I should plan for? Is there a reason, aside from cost, that everyone here uses the MS1 and not MSII? is it any better for our/my aplication, or do you just end up paying for extras that are not needed?
Thanks for any input.
And yes, I did do a few searches, and read a fair amount here and on the MS main forums. I just wanted my very own post before I spend the money
