Yeah, definetly have to get a tune. Look up Turbo Tom. He will get you headed in the right direction. Just got done tuning my ride. He has my engine running really good. I have the same power goals you have. I will be going to the dyno soon. At around 12 psi on my set up, I would have to guess I am right around 200- 225 hp. But we will see.

And yes your gonna need injectors and a tune.
