1. How is gas mileage?
****All depends on how you drive the car ,Most of my customers say it is as good or better IF they stay out of it

2. What plugs do you run, and at what gap?
****AZFS22C and at about .035 to .040

3. What exhaust do you use?
****The bigger the better

4. Does a chip come with it or do you send the ecu in for a re-flash?
****Yes it comes with a 2 setting chip, no sending in the ECU here

5. Is an aftermarket fuel pump or pressure regulator needed?
**** NO

6. Has any one sprayed nitrous on top of this kit?
****This can be done and i have 2 customers that do this , they both are using a 25 shot wet

====================================================

My Answer:

I have a 2001 ZX3. Manual Trans

1. How is gas mileage?
City = 200 to 240 miles full tank 93oct 11galons
Highway = 320 to 380 Full Tank 93oct - 11 Gallons

That is driving without hammering the TB

2. What plugs do you run, and at what gap?
Motorcraft = give you the number later
Gap = .045

3. What exhaust do you use?
Factory Flex
Focus Sport Exhaust = Sport Editon

The Flex i'm going to change later to 2.5" Trubendz

4. Does a chip come with it or do you send the ecu in for a re-flash?
Diablo Chip

5. Is an aftermarket fuel pump or pressure regulator needed?
Factory Fuel Pump = No problems so far

6. Has any one sprayed nitrous on top of this kit?
No Nitrous in my setup

Dyno
9PSI
199HP / 210TQ

Boost Controller right now is set to

Low Boost = 8PSI
High Boost = 10PSI

Boost controller off = 5PSI


Any question just pm,
In my website i have instruccion on how to install Tom's Full kit
http://www.turbozx3.com/howtoinstallturbofullkit.htm

Hope this help

I have checked my mpg twice and both times it came to 27.5 during mixed driving. I would have to admit I was a bit surprised.

I contacted Tom about the cat issue (since I have to have one in order to get my license tags renewed), and he told me that McNew's can fabricate a custom downpipe that will work with his kit and the inline RT cat they sell (the same one from the SVT header kit, bolts on in front of the flex.) I contacted McNew's and all they need are the specs on the downpipe from Tom, I haven't gone ahead with it yet because its probably going to be close to the end of the year before I'll have the funds to go turbo.
