So I'm still debating on a kit vs DIY for my 03. And in the kit side of things I know that both FM and BEGI make wonderful products. For me it comes down to the ECU.
Self explanatory. Not looking to build a motor for a turbo. Yes I know that many of you have much more power on stock internals.
This car is a toy, so I don't have to drive it every day. That said I don't want to be working on it all the time, I want to enjoy it. I'd rather not have to figure out why it just stalled at an intersection, or hiccups when it comes off boost. My wife would also rather that when she gets up earlier than me and steals the car, she doesn't have to ask me why it won't start
What I do with the car
Commuting, spirited road driving, wine and cheesing (joking... kinda), hopefully some track days, doughnuts in my businesses parking lot.
4k? Not counting clutch and exhaust.
So keeping that in mind, with the special (or maybe not) requirements of my 03 and VVT. How do I control everything? Is the Voodoo Box enough? Or would I benefit even at lower power with a stand alone system? Should I have bought an MSM
Sorry if I'm being long winded.
