Before I touch the boost controller, I put the intercooler, 305cc injectors,and a bipes unit,12.1 fmu and no wideband, what degree timing do I set it too and am I ok to turn the little **** that I have been wanting to turn for a very long time?

Without a wideband, you don't turn the little **** at all. No amount of timing retard is going to save your motor when you run dangerously lean @ 10psi with 305cc injectors

Im not saying it was correct but I ran 10psi with that setup for almost a year with no problems. Im also not saying that you will not have any problems, but... it did work.

That one is very good, many of us use it or the LC1. I ran basically the same setup for a bit thinking "I was good", turned out once I installed the wb I was running very lean due to a line rupture in the fuel tank. It saved my motor, your results may vary.

The AEM isn't bad, but I personally found the LC-1 with XD-16 to be both faster-responding and more consistent on the analog output.

the difference between the aem and the lc1 is that the lc1 reads faster?
