Default Cost Estimate

I'm very close to pulling the trigger and ordering the Adaptronic, but I wanted to know if there any other expenses I should plan for.
I've added an extra $150 to budget for fouling plugs, and just the random
**** that projects always require. Wideband not included in this estimate.

Vehicle: 2004 MSM
I can use the stock IAT from what I've seen, correct?
Any other sensors that I'll need to purchase?
Going to run stock injectors for about a month (270's), and then upgrade to something else.
If I use the electronic boost control, can I manipulate boost creep?

What's the delivery time frame? a week? a month?
Any mounting brackets, or did everyone just fab something up?

I've browsed these forums off/on for awhile now, and finally decided I had to have one! So I'm sure they'll be some "I'm an idiot and the car won't idle" thread in awhile.

TIA

They make the Adaptronic for MSM's now?
Last I heard they didn't.

You'll need a gm ait sensor too


Boost creep has nothing to do with what you use for boost controll and everything to do with your turbine size/properties....A good porting usually helps or eliminates creep.

With some tweaks to the plug in harness you can use the stock MSM IAT, we've set it up this way on my friend's MSM. I have the ADC curve worked out for it too.

The factory boost solenoid is weaksauce, grab the one from DIY.

I appreciate the feedback.
What about parts to do the sensor calibrations? Will I need anything to calibration the map (+/- pressure)?? Air tank/Vaccum pump??

This IAT

This Boost Solenoid
http://www.diyautotune.com/catalog/e...kit-p-285.html

Those two parts are correct?
