Default Xede/FM hardware/emissions

i've read alot on here, actually taking it all at once and have a headache
but i can say i understand turbo terminology a little better, and how **** works
tuning however i have no clue.

my goal is to make 200-210whp, preferably FM kit no electronics, Run an Xede with 550cc or 440cc injectors all whilst passing emissions.
basically can this be done???

i still don't get the whole CARB EO thing, as i see rotrex offers you some sticker so idk...
any info in laymans terms would greatly help.
sorry

Improved. Yes, it was totally homo.

Yes it can be done.

You don't need a CARB EO, since you don't live in Kalifornia.

Calvin - if you haven't already read it, pick up Maximum Boost:

Amazon.com: Maximum Boost: Designing, Testing, and Installing Turbocharger Systems (Engineering and Performance) (9780837601601): Corky Bell: Books

Excellent read...I learned a lot about boost from reading this book.

It's written specifically to educate turbo noobs! Honestly, it's $25 well spent - you'll learn a ton.

Thanks for the shout out on the video. I'm finna be famous!

Absolutely. Done many times in several different states. I can even make an MSM pass with larger injectors. You will have to run a different "inspection" map though. But you will not have to remove the Xede or larger injectors.

Does not apply to you in GA.
