Default New and no time lol

Hello everyone,
I've had the pleasure of owing my 01 since I was 16 in 02. After 12 long years i finally built a turbo setup using a td04l from an sti. I bought the $100 header and DIY intercooler off ebay and went at it. I work on a top fuel funny car so have some good knowledge and resources but this is just a step out of my league if you know what I'm saying. Running stock ecu and maf which is placed at the turbo intake. Really just want to know that what I have done is as right as can be. Wish I could afford hydra but just don't have enough yet. I understand that I'm sure all the info I'm looking for is on this site and I have been following this site for years but unfortunately I am running out of what little time I have and am really excited to start it but don't want to melt anything before my first autocross. Any pointers are greatly appreciated as I have tried to think of everything from hooking up the coolant lines and running a small oil cooler but just in case I missed anything I would ask the professionals.
Thank you for your time

Tried to upload a photo but it wouldn't let me for some reason but that's what happens when your on the road 200 days of the year working on something that makes 10000 hp and goes 300 mph. Bit seriously what is wrong in my previous post

Real talk, if you spent less than $1000 you cut some major corner.

In all of the reading you have done here you must not have read the stickies. Look for DIY FAQ thread.

You should not use the stock ECU and a turbo.

Hydra is not a good answer.

Check the vendor called MS Labs.

Put your location in your profile so it shows under your screen name. Someone here may be local and might be willing to help.

The NHRA gives you cats 75 minutes between rounds to rebuild motors. It will take you less time to read this:

So basically I need the bipes acu and a wide and 02 sensor to run 6psi. Guess I just figured the stock ecu could handle changing the parameters to deal with what I had

Short of the few people who work at FM and post on here, you probably will not find many of us that would say get a Hydra. It is more or less MS3 of some variant or bust.
