Default Newb m45 install, what am I needing??

Heres the plan. 94 1.8, bone stock motor 160 on clock, a lot less on the head rebuild. Bought a cold side M45 kit w/10psi pulley. 330cc injectors. FM Link ecu. China header. Planning to buy some water injection setup.


So what am I missing?? Anything I just plain forgot?

Thanks.


Any guesses on power, just for laughs

Yeah, I was gonna go turbo but... I'm too lazy for that. This is more bolt on and go.

Your car looks like the newer model of mine...only nicer. Mine is white with a black hardtop.

Link is outdated but for a simple sc setup I think it will get the job done.
Only thing I can think of is exhaust and wideband

I'm guessing ~160hp, should be good fun and predictable.

160 WHP. You won't NEED a clutch right off the bat, but it will come to that shortly.

It's a cold side right... so enjoy for now. Pick up a turbo setup, and blow the turbo through the supercharger. Prepare for much win. This is very tempting, considering I have both sitting in the garage.

A number of local autox'ers run sc's and like them, most run the kit as it came.

I second the wideband suggestion.

Thanks guys, sounds like what I was expecting power wise.

Will a wideband work with the link or do I need to change things up for that, also suggestions on which wideband to get???

I'm trying to find a 6 speed and clutch, but keep losing out due to shipping. :(
