Default New guy - Baton Rouge

Howdy y'all!
I joined in order to put up a classified for a SC system. But I need 10 posts.

Live outside of Baton Rouge.
Have an Evo Orange NB w/ factory hard top.
In process of removing a TDR / BRP hot side MP62 system.
Going to a turbo, as the car isn't driven much anymore, why not make it a bit crazier?
I also have a Z4M Coupe, and an EG Civic with engine swap and turbo.

I used to Autox a good bit, but haven't been out in 3 years.
Still love cars, but spend a lot of time off shore fishing - which is even more time / $$ consuming than the Autox was!

That's all I got...

I wouldn't drive my Miata much either if I had an M Coupe.

Pretty sure I have been lurking this board for a long time.
Have always been able to find my answers using google search through the site.

But, yes, I am going to get my count to ten and put my s**t up for sale.

When the SC goes, a turbo will follow, and maybe I'll have something good to add to the forum that will meet your standards.

Thanks for the welcome though!

Nope, I'll only add relevant posts.
I have been in the car scene sine I was 16 in one form or another, love FI, and figured this would be a good place to join.
I'm 35, not a young punk!
The Z4M will be FI at some point down the road
Even the outboards on my boat have superchargers, and my F350 has a nice big snail on it!
I also have a half completed locost, but that will stay NA - 13B bridgeport.

Just going to make it simple and go with the Xede system and 550 CC injectors.
Need to pass an OBDII scan, so this is the simplest way. Not looking for crazy power, but "just enough"

Was trying to go above 4k, not in boost just nicely.

Hit 4k, the ecu ws suppose to send an o2 signal since its suppose to act as a clamp... well i dont know if it didnt but i started getting tons of knock so i'm guessing it added lots of timing since the afr was still in the green. Blew the head gasket in those 2-3 seconds this happened. That and it wouldnt go in the higher load cells so it was either super rich on spool up or super lean after wards.

Went standalone and been loving it ever since.
