no

250whm is the "rule of thumb" quoted sometimes, and that's with perfect tuning and reasonable driving.

The rest you need to search/read/research and come up with the answers that fit your budget/goals/dreams.

This has been asked/discussed/beat into the ground so many times. Really should use the search function.

275 whp is past the "safe" limit.

I swear we get SO MANY of these threads that we should just make a section for them. Kinda like "the dumpster" for people too damn lazy to read the 100000 threads about this exact topic

"Stupid threads that no one wants to read, again."

When you get banned you can only access that forum.

Thank you to everyone that pointed me in the right direction. Big thanks to Aaronc7 for the link. It contains some useful info for sure.

Sorry to everyone that I offended by not researching deeply enough before posting. Honestly, I saw a couple turbos posted by your members on this forum and I really wanted to PM them to get a total price with shipping quote and ask if paypal is okay. When I saw that I did not have enough posts to PM I got really unstinggie (sp) with the posts. I figured that I am a real human, with real money, and not a spam bot, I am trying to buy something with real money that somebody has been trying to sell for some time. I went overboard because I wanted to jump on a turbo. Sorry. Honestly.

Hustler, the biggest apology goes to you as you are the one I upset the most. I have a nice disposition and speak gently to folks on the web the same way I do face to face, so for you to tell me to "shut the ---- up" you must be really mad. You are a Mod and see a ton of this I bet and it gets old I bet. Sorry. Honestly.

My question...
Why run a link instead of something else like Megasquirt or AEM or Emanage?

Im on my phone atm so I cant see the OP's location, but in places like Australia (and Im guessing NZ) there is very little support for megasquirt and AEM. Brands like Link (a NZ brand if memory serves me correctly) and Haltech (an Australian brand) have a lot more support over here.

It's been a struggle all my life to deal with the pain I feel inside from my ambiguous genetalia. This is how I cope with the pain of living.

I am a tranny.

You might work-out here after-all.

Miataturbo is the MS support forum.

none of these were even a twinkle in a creators eye when I bought my Link. I was NA at first, with individual throttle bodies I made, then ditched that NA business and went with the rest of the fm2 kit, and even that was probably before even MS was available. I enjoy tuning but really do not get bogged down in which system I tune. I may be upgrading one of these days though. Ray really did a great job with the Link code but the temp sensor section eats temp sensors at $115 a pop.
Thanks
..and 10

Is there no way to add more stickies? The search function is completely jacked on here. I would much rather just read up than ask questions but having to search google all the time is annoying. Just sayin?

I use google "site search." Loads easier to find what you're really looking for.
