Man the Roush kit has my attention...

A stage 2 kit for only $3600, shipping included? That's damn nice....only thing I don't like is the 38lb injectors...a tad small, but I won't be building up my bottom end anyway so I can't boost much past what it comes as...I was orginially going to go with the powerworks or procharger, or Tom's Stage 1 kit, but this roush kit is cheaper by a lot and gets near the same gains, and insane tq numbers (215!!)...thinking of getting a 3" trubendz borla to compliment it....gonna go with eibach springs, anti-roll bars, fidanza flywheel, steeda short throw shifter, and maybe an esslinger udp (should I just leave that out...I heard it gets annoying with the lights flickering sometimes and the a/c not working as well)

This kit out of the box will not produce 215 ft lbs. It will make around 200. It makes 6 lbs of boost not 10 as has been advertised. It will produce these numbers if upgraded slightly and with the right tune.

The tune does not set the boost , The waste gate spring does

If you add more boost to this kit , You will need more tuning , larger injectors and have to deal with the MAF recal , The turbo should be good to about 15 to 16 PSI

well, according to the site, the kit has EVERYTHING needed to achieve 10 psi and the numbers they're saying.

EXTRA: look here: http://www.zx3tuning.com/fuel_and_tuning_01.html This sells injectors and MAFs, and you said I would need a larger set of injectors to be pushing around 210whp, but on this site it says that 36lb injectors will be good up to 235whp, which I will not be able to reach anyway. Although I might just put the 42lb in just so I have some extra room...although it says for serious boost only, will having 42s have any detrimental effect, or will they only do good? And how does that 70mm MAF kit look? Think that's a good buy? OK so the Roush kit with discount is 3600 (that's with shipping) + 215 (42lb injectors) + 229 (70mm MAF kit), so that's 4044. Plus a 3" Trubendz exhaust w/magnaflow, that's $320. Plus the install work, probably plus $500 or so. That's about 4800 for prolly something like 210whp/215wtq...I can live with that

If you want 42s, you can likely just ask to have them substituted at little or perhaps no additional cost.

Tom - Do you know that the supplied air meter configuration will lack the required range for what he wants to do? Or are you guessing? If you know, what exactly is the configuration... sensor used and tube ID?

Im more guessing than anything , I think it is the stock meter in a 2.5 tube maybe Ray will chime in and say exactly what it is

Duffman add 325 to 375.00 for a chip and about 300 for dyno tuning , So now your in the 4650-4700.00 range
