Tuning needed? Maybe?

On my T3 intercooled setup pushing 8psi just wondering if I can bolt everything for now and drive it with out having to have Tom do my diablo until I push more boost. And what should I do about the OBDII lights that will pop up

You are asking for trouble if you bolt it up without any tuning...ESPECIALLY WITH 8PSI! I know how hard it is to wait till you get tuning but it will be much better in the long run to waitr rather than hook it up without tuning and blow your motor. Do yourself a favor and hold back from hooking it up until you can get tuning figured out. Tom will certainly do a good job tuning it...it will be well worth the wait.

8 psi is a LOT of boost for a stock engine you will throw those rods out the side of your block in a heartbeat!

Focus James if you can get it done right for $500 that is a very good deal.

Yep, mine was more than that. Most dynos will charge you on an hourly basis, and if your tuner can't get it done in a short amount of time, it's on your bill!
