no...

good luck here btw, someone else may have a better answer for you.

You could also try making another thread in the megasquirt section.

I wouldn't do it personally, but I would bet if you get a wideband and keep a close eye on your air/fuel ratio (don't let it go leaner than 12:1 in boost) don't go over 5psi, and run 93 octane fuel that you would be able to get away with it.

Note: I've got no experience doing it, just speculating that it could be done. Its kind of like having unprotected sexy with a hooker and hoping not to catch anything. I think it could be done and I'd love to hear feedback on how it went for you, but I'm not going to try it for myself.

So not only do you ask a STUPID question, about AIDZ, but you double post it in different threads too?

I feel like ripping apart a n00b this morning. Are you my n00b?

Step 1: turbo with FMU

Step 2: install megasquirt with no experience tuning it

Step 3: replace blown engine because you learned to tune on a turbo engine instead of an NA one

OR

Step 1: install megasquirt and learn to tune on safe NA engine

Step 2: install turbo

Step 3: drive your car because you didn't blow up your engine

I know which one I am doing.

For your sake OP, reply with picture of cute kitten sans text and then go post an intro thread. Otherwise:

my advice to you is sit back and read. All the questions you will ever need to ask already have answers posted. Look at my join date and post count, I cant begin to explain how many people show up and want information that is readily available spoon fed to them.

Click the little tab on the top left of the page that says forums, then go to beginners luck. post in the meet and greet to somewhat redeem yourself, then go to useful saved posts and read up.
