Default about to order!

I need you guys to make sure im on the right track.

First, is there a better value of buying a used kit in the FS forum or buying one already built by DIY or by braineack?

I am able to assemble 100%. The tuning part has me a little nervous.

So, assuming ordering and building my own is the best option (for educuation and costs). I plan on ordering the following:

1. DIYPNP Nippon Denso 76pin Unassembled Kit
2. MSPNP and DIYPNP IAT Sensor Kit - Aluminum Bung
3. MegaSquirt Stimulator / DIYPNP Power Supply


what else do i need? i have a lead bending tool , solder, iron, esd station to use...


This is for my 1990. 1.8 swapped still has a 1.6 TB, injectors, and AFM. Once i build my DIYPNP, my plan is to tune it as is first to ease the learning curve on this. deleting my AFM and upgrading to just the oem 1.8 injectors to start. Future turbo setup is a home brew kit based off a FM t2 manifold, and a Nissan SR20 T25. I will be building my own FMIC, DP, etc. from leftovers i have at hand.

Don't forget that wideband. And you want to buy Tunerstudio.

Dont forget a desoldering braid or desoldering pump. Here is a link for the pump

It is inevitable that you are going to screw up a few along the way, and you will have to remove some solder. Better to be prepared than running out at the last minute trying to get one. Also Scotch tape comes in very handy to tape the resistors in place so you can flip the board and solder from the back side.

TunerStudio is on EFIAnalytics.com. There is a free version that has all the essentials, and a paid version that adds some useful features like VE Analyzer Live.

Deffinately TunerStudio, it is much more user friendly, plus the VE Analyzer on the paid version will make your job that much easier. Those guys spent their time pulling their hair out so we can save ours. It really is a life saver.

It would make your life so much easier when you learn to tune with an almost stock engine. I have seen great builds go down the drain because they get stuck on the tuning side of it.

Someday I will be on PNP mode, but for now I am on a ghetto safc. Its better to have the tuning well mastered and then go from there.
