Default Stockpiling / Planning

So I'm planning a build for my car, but I don't want to do it now cause I drive it everyday. So this will probably happen in winter when I can't drive it. So I want to plan everything right, and get exactly what I need right now, so when the time comes, I'm set. My goal is to have 1 HP at the wheels for every 10 lbs. My car weights 2350 lbs, so I'd like to get 240hp out of it. I want to run about 12 psi, no more than 14. What injectors would I need to meet these goals? I want to use a boomslang style harness and run parallel with my stock computer, probably with a Microtech LT8 or maybe an EMS-pro or MS. Where are you guys mounting your MS's or whatever you're using? I was thinking about mounting behind the drivers seat, and running the wires under my carpet or through my sill plate right to the harness. So for right now I am looking for injectors, and a standalone with a harness that I won't need to cut into my factory one. Whatever you guys come up with is always helpful and greatly appreciated. Or if anyone has anything for sale for a 99-00 that would benefit my setup, PM me. Thanks.

Maybe this will help...I want to run between 10 & 14 psi, but can't because of my limitations..(stock injectors, no under boost timing control.) I want to go with a standalone, but I still need to pass emissions, so this means wire parallel with the stock ECU. I have read and read and what I am looking for is a list that says, "buy this ECU and buy this harness, and plug it in and start your car." Since I have stock injectors now, if I run more boost, I will need larger ones. Which injectors are recommended that would handle no more than 14psi of boost? What harness will I need, and what ECU should I buy that I won't be posting stuff like "can't get this crazy ECU to work?"

550cc injectors, flow tested, megasquirt PNP if you have the cash, build it your self if you dont, and a 3 inch exhaust.

OH. My bad. I must have been half asleep when I read your post. I was thinking "why is this guy asking about a build when his sig has a built up car already".

If you dont want to be posting ""can't get this crazy ECU to work?"" get a hydra. Totally plug and go from what I hear. mspnp will require effort and there are no guarantees.

Im not too sure on all the details of it, but getting in touch with Corky or stephanie from bell and talking about XEDE may be worth the time..it's seems to be 100% plug-and-play and even comes with injectors.

s5 rx7 460's and 550's are easy to come by on the cheap.
