ok really easy. . . . .
T3 turbo, BEGI mani & DP, EMB, 305'S, Oil lines. Is this enough for a DIY/greddy replica or will i still need a afpr. Sorry searched for the answere but it all came back mixed.

What boost level are you plannin on running? I am going to guess that the 305s at stock fuel pressures are going to max out between 4 and 6 psi

I dont know much about EMB, other than its the most basic of the Greddy Emanage Series. We have an e-manage section on the forum and I think its in your best interest to spend some time there and get a good understanding of what you have to work with as well as what others have done or are doing.

NO, you don't HAVE to run 305's... I'm not sure what the upper limit of EMB is on injectors, but I know guys run up to 460's... if you search and find dudes running 550's, that would be your best bet for overhead and future growth. There is an Emanage forum, I'd start there.

I'd also plumb in your BOV now just in case you get a boost spike somewhere down the line you don't hurt your turbo.

you could get away with no fuel pump and just the fmu. pumping to 70psi would give you a lot of room to grow.
