Please critique my build plan (BEGi-S, EMB)
Well, after lurking for over two years, I finally have the means to get boosted, so I think it's high time I lay out my build plan for everyone to make fun of, and then later make this into a build thread.
I want to go with a base Begi-S kit; it's cheap, I already have a collection of parts to use for intercooling, fueling, etc. when the time comes.
Here's what I've got already:
Emanage Blue - Installed
Supra 305cc pnp injectors
A bunch of piping/couplers and a couple intercoolers
More junk (tiny turbo, mani, random stuff) that will appear in the FS soon.
Like I mentioned earlier, I think I'm going to get a Begi-S kit. I'm hoping I can opt out of the included FMU to save some $$ since I already have the 6:1 FMU. Starting out I'm going to just run 6psi (we have 93 octane here) and then install an intercooler later (probably the next weekend since I know all I have to do is put a few turns on the MBC for more power). I'll also be getting a wbo2, thinking LC-1. I've seen the LC-1 wired into and EMB before into the MAP/boost sensor port. Anyone have tips on this or will I just have to do some guess & check?
For exhaust, I'm going to either hook it up to the stock exhaust or preferrably just run off the DP. There isn't emissions testing around here and there are plenty of lifted trucks w/glasspacks that are loud as hell around here, so I think my only worries will be smelling like exhaust and not being able to hear anything. We'll see how that goes.
So, correct me if I'm wrong, the 305s, EMB, and FMU should have me good for 180-190whp tops, no?
Now, I know a lot of you will yell at me to go MSPNP, and I'll agree with you there, I should and will someday, but not right now. Cash is limited, so is my time to work on the car. Plus it's my only car, so I want to avoid delving into too many new things at once since I gotta drive it to work the Monday after I boost it.
So, those are my plans. I think I'll order the BEGi kit soon as I've been seeeing threads lately about shipping issues with them, and I want to install it as soon as it's warm enough outside.
So that's what I've got. Please be gentle.
