That sounds like one of those parts that if you cant afford the right ones (stand alone) you cant afford to turbo you car.

You can get an MS1 or MS2 for $250 in the classified section. For $20 more than the Begi failaids you can actually buy respect.

I know it sounds noobish of me but the previous owner put some dumb fpr on it that's absolutely pitiful turned the base pressure to 80psi!!!! Yes 80 so I wanna fix it but I wanna replace this before going piggyback or standalone.

"Someone cut my leg off. But my band-aid is bloody. Which band-aid do you recommend?"

Go to the emergency room.

"But the band-aid that I had is bloody, which new one should I get?"

Megasquirt: $250

New 1.8 shortblock: $700

You decide which is cheaper, OP.

You know most people at this point would flip their lid but I'm going to ask this question. You guys think I should stick with this Fpr that likes to fluctuate the fuel pressure between 20-40psi at idle and 40-60 while cruising and get a mega squirt first so I work around my problem and my motor can blow with standalone because I listened to people on the forums. Can I not just get an answer to my question so I can then go buy the mega squirt you guys refer to? There are reasons why I need to replace this which is why I asked the question. This car was thrown together with hopes, dreams, a little prayer, and duct tape I'm trying to remove all of that from the equation.

The answer: STOCK regulator + PROPER EMS.

Done.

Until you're making well over 300 you don't need any regulator besides stock.
But if you still must have one, and think $200 is **** bricks territory, then refer to the previous post of: "if that's too much for you then don't bother turboing a car".

hook up the fpr make sure all the hoses are connected properly then stick one of the hoses in your *******.
