Turbo & Zetec

Is there any suggestions to if after you install a turbo should I get it towed to a shop that can dyno tune it, or would it be safe to start after I install the turbo kit??? Ive heard they might blow up if they are not set up on a dyno.
Thanks

most kits come with a base tune which would be good enough for you to get to a dyno if ur not beating on it

So I should get some injectors and take it somewhere to get tuned because the kit I bought does not have a temp tune or injectors

Yessir. Snag some injectors and take it somewhere to get tuned. Don't turn that car on without a temp tune. Will cost you mucho dinero.

42 lb injectors and a temp tune is a out of the box general tune that is made specific to the lets say Focus but not to your Focus Usually the tuner your going to get it tuned at will make you one..price varies. will make one up for you..they are all diffrent when it comes to this stuff. What kit did you go with??
