My last post got a few replies.....my final question was.....

The cost of the fuel setup for running 6-7psi with a 98+ escort without the ability to crank up the resistance on the return line. I see I need to take the expensive route.....how expensive?

What if you swapped in '97 fuel rail, lines, and pump? I would think that would be cheaper and easier to work with than the returnless system.

The 98+ have a mess of other sensors and a pump driver circuit that the -97 dont have, I'm pretty sure if you change the way the system works, the PCM will freek out.

I had posted a general cost est. for it using various options. The cheapest one is the Electronic FMU from Pro-M for like $350 I think. Plus you would want larger injectors so add that onto the cost of the FMU.

So $350 US is the cheapest fuel part id need to go? Ontop of gauges, RS manifold, downpipe, and a t3.........of course oil and coolant lines

Just curious .... if I already have a supercharger, lets say....and M90...running about 6-7 psi of boost..would it be easier to supercharge my car?

You'll still need engine managment no matter if you boost from a turbo or a supercharger. But you will make power more efficently with a turbo, and there are exsisiting manifolds allready.

Turbo charging is'nt cheap. You can get by with out breaking the bank if you do your home work and be paitent. Just do lot's of reading before you start buying parts that might not work/fit.
