the motor is no way near stock in my car, the motor was built to handle a turbo uniit up to 15 lbs

block is O ringed it is
running alum heads  fast as cast units
anderson blue printed stock cam fuel system has all up grade lines with twin 255 waldo pumps  adjustable pressrue set at 70 lbs 42 lbs injectors
maf was clabreated to the 42 lb injectors

think a lot of the problem with the eec-iv both the A9T and a A9P   think a lot of the problem  was the wiring was old so lots of wiring issues i had the tweecer unit on the motor and still had running issues plugs droping out  high idle  also had a few chips burned that were suppose to help but never really did

have tried different distriter units and no correction chip cost money to have reburned
which is why i just said it was time and made the change to the FAST system

I would try it locked out with 42's and run 7/8#'s. just throw a 255lph in the tank. go 1 step colder plug

after that you will need a block and good internals, a complete fuel system-sump pump,lines,rails, and big injectors/aftermarket tune. its a giant step

stock shortblock- like the casino commercial, know your limit, play within it!

This is what im going to try first, i pretty much have it together rite now, im just lacking a lot of piddily stuff, belt, vac hoses, hook up boost gauge, a new sensor for my wideband, and a few other fittings and things.

I just put the walbro gss340 in yesterday, got the 42lb injectors in, and rickibrat2 sent me a blowthrough MAF and i got all that in also.

Im going to try and run the stock tune at first and see what happens (with low boost 4-5psi)
if it dosent work rickibrat2 has also sent me a base chip, so i will see how that responds.

If neither work out i will save for a tweecer or moates, is my last option.

as far as the kit, everything went together very well, i had to do no grinding or fitting to make it fit.
we will see how it last once it running though.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

i got it fired up sunday, cranked rite up and idled

got the timing locked at 18 and fp set at 40, still running the stock tune.

all i like doing before a road test is buy a new sensor for my wideband and build a catch can and vent my vc's to it.

Just thought i would update its been a while

Ive been running the kit for around 5 months now.
Kit went on very well, just a couple minor snags, no fab work was needed, only cut one charge pipe to fit my MAF, but that is common, its left a little long to fit different brand maf meters.

only problem so far was my oil feed line burst, but was replaced free of charge

Im running on the stock a9p tune with 03 cobra 39lb injectors, 73mm c&l maf as blow through, timing locked at *18, 255lph pump, and adjusted fuel pressure untill i got the desired AFR at wot.
afr's are in the 14.5-14.8 at cruise/idle, drop to 11.2-11.4 at WOT.  I have no surging or any driveablility problems being on the stock tune, drives like it did before until i see boost. Im happy that part of it all work out for me.

the down pipe is 3'' on this kit, i ended up just running single 3" exhaust and a single 3" straight through muffler dumped at the rear end.

Im only at 5psi rite now, wow what a difference, 1st and 2nd are useless now, it pulls real nice.
Next up is a gear swap, i have a set of 3.27's im going to run.
and a hallman boost controller to turn the boost up, a little Naughty

Just a regular c&l using it in blow through,  its the same one i had on my car before when it was NA, i just swapped the sample tube for my injector size.
