Default FM Hydra 3071R on the way

Hustler, I just bought out the FM catalog! LOL

3071
Hydra
750 injectors
Ceramic coated manifold and housing
Steel lines
19" intercooler
3" stainless exhaust
Race radiator

This is going on a stock 2002. Going to try to keep the boost under 12 until the end of the summer. (Going to Afganistan and 2.0 when I get back) One thing that sucks though is that the intercooler is back ordered due to a union strike. 2 to 4 weeks.

12psi on a 3071 is quite a bit. It is quite a bit more than 16psi on a 2554. You do know this, right?

Well, I'm glad I got my 19" intercooler when I did (last week). I'd be pissed about a backorder now. lol

3071 Should get you into the 20's easy once you've strengthened the internals.

If he's shopping from the catalog, then I'm sure he can afford to drop the car off and have it installed and tuned. btw- one of the shops around here says they will tune the car for $600. That's a complete tune- everything, every zone, every feature for daily driving, any temperature and boost. That's really not a bad deal for those who have more money than time, or guys in the service. They've got a few guys who did just that- when they come back their car will be complete and ready to drive.

Where is that shop and what is the name? The more the tuning subject comes up the more I wonder if I will need it.

Here is the reasoning. I will be making right at the limit of the stock internals. The Hydra will come with a very conservative tune. The tune (I'm guessing) will be very rich and not much timing. This will pull power and reduce the chance of detonation. I am thinking this is very good for my situation. If I go pay for someone to tune it what would I really get. I don't want more power at this point and I need something safe on the engine.

$17k or so on a motor and turbo kit but you won't pay $500 to get your ******* car tuned because you don't have a clue what's going on. There's nothing wrong with check-booking the build, but don't cheap out on the most important part.
