Ok, I have most of the turbo setup bought for my 99 spi. Still havent got the manifold or the turbo, but I have the IC and BOV. Now, Since I'm jsut waiting for more money to buy more stuff, I was thinking about bolting the IC to where its going to be, making the tubing from the IC to the TB with the bov in there, and hooking up a filter to the other end of the IC. So basicly it would be the second half of a turbo setup. Im just wondering what everybody thinks about this.

It will work, but there will be no advantage to using the intercooler while the motor is still N/A. And depending on your BOV, you might not want to run the vac line to it yet.

What did you decide to use for engine managment?

What did I decide to use for engine manamement? Hmm...tough question.

No really umm well im pretty sure im gonna get a cutom tuned diablosport delta chip with a mustang 5.0 MAF and bigger injectors...i still havent decided on what size though. I've heard for 10 psi 42 33 and 36 lbs so I just need to do some more research. I think im going to get 36# because of this Also I have a question..do I need to get a high flow fuel pump for installing a turbo? In the turbo info on feoa I haven't really come across anyone saying they needed one, but while doing research on standalones they pretty much all say a high flow fuel pump is needed, but I think that was just for people switching from carbs to fuel injection.

Thanks

The stock pump can support about 200hp. It has a maximum output pressure of 80psi, any higher fuel pressure and the injectors can lock up-but you only have to worry about that if your using a FMU, and your not.

So if your planing less then 200hp the stock pump should be fine.

How can I know how much hp I will have? The only thing I can say is that I plan to be running 10 lbs of boost. I have read that 1 lb of boost = about 9-10 hp. So stock, 110hp + 10lbs of boost x 10hp = 210. So I guess I will need a new pump.

Jeff, what kind of chip do you have?
