Default Installed Greddy in 3 hours !!!

Got the base kit installed with upgraded hardware installed yesterday after work. Only took 3 hours!!!

Only bad thing is my timing is still set at 14 degrees! So no revving above 3.5k rpm right now :(

I am retarding my timing, installing ngk zfr7f-11 plugs gapped at .035, and a walbro 190lph HP today on my lunch break.

This car feels like it will be as fast or faster than a healthy SR powered 240

Just wanted to update my progress and say thanks again!

It's not a record, but still impressive.

listen for ping, you have no intercooler and advanced timing...

mine took 2 hours.

Comparable to an sr20 powered 240 about even. A friend of mine has a stock sr in a 240 and its about a dead even race from 2nd gear.

Thanks for all of the replies

I got the timing set to ~5-6 degrees static and installed the plugs, but I don't want to tighten my wastegate (to get rid of that annoying rattle ) untill I install my fuel pump

Kills already include several late model mustangs and camaros

Cool...maybe we can meet up sometime. I am going to meagasquirt my car, and if I wouldn't have bought the greddy I probably would have built a GT2554R based setup...so I would definately like to check out your car!

Thanks again guys... couldn't have done it without you

B.S. Unless you had it on a lift, did nothing with the exhaust, and had 2 people helping you!

I'm pretty sure I could do a standard GReddy kit in under 2 hours, with air tools. We did one in two hours flat with 3 guys working on it in sections with hand tools.

Is it ok to just bolt the kit up with minimal to no tuning, and go beat on it?
