ok so i have the greddy turbo kit. stripes IC pipes and intercooler. bipes acu. 1.8L inj. my psi is adjusted to around 6-7. i have my old nitrous kit that im going to hook back up this weekend or mayeb next weekend when it gets warm in ohio.. so the nitrous shot will be 40 and i am goin to set my timing on my bipes so it Pulls 6* off the stock 10 timing. so does this sound good. its not a large shot and my timing should be good. i've talked to a guy i know that has both nitrous and turbo and he said just use a smaller shot.. i'm thinking about doing my exhaust soon too..

Get yourself a Walbro190lphHP fuel pump, a disc kit for your Vortech, and an LC1 wideband. $350 total.

Set base timing to 14psi and start by pulling 8* w/Bipes. Turn boost up to 10psi and swap in discs until A/F is ideal at WOT. Pull a little less timing over the course of a few days until you're hearing a little knock at WOT... then ad back in one degree. During summer, ad an extra degree of timing pull.

Do the above and you've got 40extra whp at all times.
Have an exhaust shop weld you up a cheap 2.5" exhaust sans cat for around $200 and get an extra 10whp and improve spool time by about 1500rpm over the stock exhaust.

I know people who run 12psi on the exact setup I've mentioned and still maintain a decent fuel curve... it's possible, but if you're gonna do it, I'd upgrade to 305/310/330cc fuel injectors to get the fuel pressure down.

Sell nitrout kit on Craigslist for funds.

Yea that does sound like a good idea. I think I will go that route and sell the nitrous and buy those parts. Thanks.
