how come....

mcnews doesn't have anything posted in here? i think they should have something they would get more attention. I will be doing my nitrous tune and cam gear adjustment through them..

list of things i am buying

Sniper (nos) Wet kit: 308$ (ebay)
4-2-1 header: 25-50$ from FF member

sub-total:358$

things i will be getting while at mcnews this summer/fall.
xcal: ~380$
cam gear adjusting: 85$/hr.
nitrous tune: 100$/hr

about 3 hours of tuning all together.

sub-total: 660$

Grand total: ~1010$


I think this is pretty good stating that i am getting alot of things done and he even saved me from getting a wideband that isn't Always needed for everything.

thoughts, comments?

aaron, you should have gotten the SVT header w/ EGR provisions from the dude at carlisle. had a $100 tag on it, but you could have jewed him down alot! i almost got it to sell on here!

and id still get a wideband. even if ray is tuning it, you'd want to know what its running when your HITTING THE JOOOOOOSE!

get an xcal online, liked ebay and save a 100 or 200$
just be very careful and make sure you get what you want and that its unlocked and such.

Good luck man.
I have 4-1 headers, like race ones that are pretty nice, they have the egr fitting and two o2 bungs. I went turbo but may be able to sell them to you...

i talked to ray and he said once i get the focus tuned there with the nitrous setup a wideband isn't necessary but if i want to get one i can.

i might go ahead and get one just to fill up my gauge pod with the nitrous boost gauge ill be getting also.

I just want to widdle out parts that i really don't need. im on a budget and I don't have Alot of money.

Well its rare but I have to disagree with Ray if he said that , Like any engine things change , With Nitrous unlike a NA , SC or Turbo you get NO second chance

With Nitrous you should be watching the AF all the time , fuel filter , fuel pump , fuel psi drop from signal from ECU , dirty MAF , bad TPS and many many other things that can change over time , most of these can be cought in NA WOT which would tell you NOT to use the nitrous

No one running Nitrous , SC or Turbo should be doing it with out a wide band , The wide band will save you money in the long run and for 200.00 well worth the cost
