Default Can't decide.. install hacks or sell for MS?

So I have '99 injectors, a Begi AFPR, MSD inline pump, bipes, and everything is in the den except the bipes, which is installed. I can't decide, sell all this and go megasquirt or stay the course and see what all this can do?

I'm kinda leaning toward MS just because it's a better solution and can rid me of the AFM.

NBs don't have a return line... so how are you planning to tune the afpr?

Long term, I want to run corvette-club events So I want the POWA!! Only the bipes is installed, and the only thing new is the Begi, all others were purchased used (from people on this fantastic forum).

I think that settles it, I'll sell my stuffs.

Totally seriously? Why not?

I thought to supply the injectors with the amount of fuel I'd be asking of them I'd need more flow?

BUT you will require injectors that can support the power level you are after at 43.5PSI. In other words you'll want bigger injectors like the 440 or 550 (or what ever size you desire).

I feel like a dumb ***... i mis-read the '99 injectors part as you having a '99. In that case I still vote for the MS as your upgrade options in the future will not be as limited.

NP Arkmage, I figured that's what had happened.

I'm goin' for the MS now, mind is made, FS thread is made. w00t!

Just looked at the FM kits too, and you're right, no pump! I guess you only need the pump if you're going to raise fuel pressure?

The MS can be a tough road, but the support on this board is simply amazing.

I vote MS. You're not going to match the tune you can get with a stand-alone using your "hacks". That goes for making power and street drivability.
