Default Greddy kit export to Ireland

I want to import a Greddy turbo kit ti Ireland. I have searched the forum and can't find any suppliers. Can anyone send me in the direction of a supplier who can ship to Ireland?

Thanks in advance

splurge for the BEGI-S, the consensus here is that for the extra money you get a much higher quality system.

If you REALLY want a Greddy kit, see http://www.mx5mad.com.

But I agree, the BEGI-S is better!

They also think the MSPNP is better than an AEM EMS. People who don't know can only ASSUME what is better. For the extra money you spend to get the Begi kit, you could make the Greddy AS GOOD or better. Just get the Greddy Kit, get a DP, get a Begi AFPR (best on the market, no arguing that) to replace the Vortech unit, put in larger injectors, and a FMIC. You'll make close to 180whp easy. Anything more and I recommend a standalone. For either kit, you need to get a 1.8l rear end, cause the stock 1.6l is GLASS.

What you have described is exactly the power I hope to achieve
If I was to put in larger injectors would I need a high pressure fuel pump? Would it make sense to fit a Bipes Acu aswell?

You would still need some way to raise the fuel pressure under boost, even if just by a little bit.

The Bipes would work well, since you would want to run about 14deg BTDC after you install a FMIC. You could pull it back to 10 under boost, which should work well. Remember, you need a boost gauge and an A/F gauge so you can set it right.

sounds good, I have ordered a copy of maximum boost to familiarize myself more but I can't help but ask you questions cos ur set up was what I was hoping for! What timing should I run with the Greddy before I fit the FMIC? I wan't to build up gradually.

Run 8deg BTDC, you might get away with more since you have higher octane there than we do here, but that is what I was running on mine. The Greddy instructions say to run 6deg, but it reallys bogs down in the lower rpms like that.

MS pnp is a great unit but the AEM is better

as was mentioned above ^^^^ Mx5Mad.com are based in Romford in Essex, I got my Greddy kit from them & they do the Begi turbo kits as well.
Performance5.com are UK sellers of the FM kits if you prefer one of those.

Why not get an Emanage Blue?, they're fairly cheap 2nd hand, and should be enough to take you to 200Bhp, better than the band-aid route imo.
Anything more than that and you should really be looking towards a standalone ecu, Megasquirt is becoming popular in the UK, theres the Link, Adaptronic, Tec.... list is endless. I don't know of anyone running the AEM (that's not to say that there aren't a few AEM users over here), just something to consider when it comes to finding somewhere to get it tuned...

doesn't the EMB still require a RRFPR & high flow fuel pump?

Nope. well, depends on your setup. I'm running the EMB with 320cc injectors, no AFPR, no uprated fuel pump, just stock fuel pressure and all is well. In fact the car is getting tuned next weekend and should make 180Bhp+ at the flywheel.
I originally ran the EMB with stock injectors & the Vortech FPR, it allowed me to get the most out of the fuelling system & also helped a lot with the timing.
Stock pump should be fine for over 200Bhp assuming it's still working fairly well.

Yes, Emanage Blue allows you to adjust the fuelling & timing. It won't do it "as needed" it can't think for itself, it goes off of the Map stored in it's memory, so you can either tune it yourself or get it to a dyno and get it tuned (recommended).
It will allow you to run up to 150% larger than stock injectors.

If you want simplicity, then use the Vortech AFPR that comes with the Greddy kit, and get a Bipes ACU for adjusting timing in boost. should be fine for stock boost pressure.

It seems like if you were going to buy a Greddy at $1648 and buy a DP and AFPR from BEGi you would spend less money buying a BEGi-S with a mild steel seperated DP. That is, if you plan to buy a begi DP and the begi AFPR for your greddy kit. Correct me if you have another pricing route:

Greddy + BEGi DP + AFPR = $2352

BEGi S + FMU + DP = $2275
