I'd recommend you get a megasquirt now, learn how to tune your car and put on the turbo later.

Really, really recommend it.

+1, that would then rid your need of any afm at all, as well as giving you good control over your fuel and timing

It will allow you to add just one thing at a time, making it MUCH easier to troubleshoot. Plus, no AFM, no FMU, no timing adjustment boxes.

MS > injectors > turbo + IC + exhaust would be how I'd do it. You'll probably want bigger injectors, though, if you plan on adding more boost in the future. Those won't get you very far.

I recommend you get MS, don't read anything about it, then post questions here and let us tune the car for you, for free.

If you didn't know you could and should eliminate the AFM, you should do one of two things:

1. A LOT of reading about turbocharging your engine and how to manage it. A lot.

2. Pay someone else a lot of money to do this for you.
