no issue as the kit comes you stand to gain 30-40 whp just install and retard base timming. From there the options from there the options begin but like i said they are options not necescities. Bipes, some 300cc injectors, WI, Wideband 02, and, an IC, are all base options wich will allow you to hit anywhere from 200-250whp if you know what you are doing, and tune it carefully. From there the options progress to bigger downpipes, and an ecu of some sort with bigger injectors. No matter what you do the stock clutch is going to hate life past 140whp. So if that is an issue for you get the base Greddy kit, a ebay IC, make a 5$ MBC or get it off ebay, return timmng to a more normal setting and enjoy life at the edge of what the clutch will give you. If you run into problems there a replacement fuel pump will give you abit more pressure headroom,as the stock pump is not good for much more than 70 or so psi, and a walboro 190 high pressure is like 95$ from lightning motorsports. So let us know how far you wanna go and we can show you how to get there and help you troubleshoot any problems you might run into. The more time you spend reading this site, the easier all of this will be on you. There is alot of good research here. GL man If money is no option though a Begi or FM is better.

i was just in your position but iv been reading this site like crazy for the past week or two ..i just ordered my kit like 3 days ago but the only thing i bought was the kit it self ...a clutch ..boost gauge ...air/fuel ratio gauge..and greddy bov type rs..i dont plan on getting an intercooler until i boost more becasue i think 5 psi is not that much boost anyways. and my funds are really low.. so that will be my set up for now ..and ima make a custom intake pipe to replace that plastic crap ....for under a 100 bucks just with raw materials ...

This is why we need a Greddy specific FAQ. I know that the information exists places... it's just not in a sticky at the top of the forum.

Sure would be nice if some one would finish that FAQ. I am very new to FI and the Greddy kit. I read here often, and have some plans (when CONUS) but it would be nice to have a dedicated greedy FAQ to use as guidance.
