Fuel system

I have an 04 ZX3 and will be turboing it here in the coming weeks.I noticed the fuel system is returnless.What are people doing to get by this without doing a return system?

Do the guys that are doing your kit not have anything for tuning the Zetec

Words of warning DO NOT try to do this with out larger injectors 42`s recal mass air and somthing to controle timing and fuel

Also loose the internal waste gate there crap

They said they can do do it in the chip also.I thought it sounded odd and thought I would ask around.Yes, they are using a Pro-M meter and 42# injectors.

Tom,

I know Mental Addiction Motorsports is looking for someone to do the Focus chip's for there kit's.Who would you recommend?
I'm only wanting to push 6-8psi and thought the internal wastegate would be ok.They recommend a Tial 38mm but the added cost will be hard to come up with(money is tight) in the next few weeks. Do you have any advice for me?

I'm not paying very much for the kit.This is what I'm getting:
Super60 T-3 internal wastegate
Stainless header
2.5 stainless downpipe
4-42# injectors
ProM meter
Extruded air/air intercooler(upgrade) core w/ 2.5 inlet and outlet
all piping
T-bolt clamps
Billet BOV (similar to the bosch except it's aluminum)
chip
etc.


I'm getting everything at cost and no labor charges because I'm the test bed car.I don't want to post how much I'm paying because it's VERY cheap.
They said If I wanted to external wastegate it would be another $225.Since I'm only going to run 6psi the stock internal wastegate will support that and with money being tight it should be fine.
The Protege kit they designed is very nice.They are using a log style header similar to yours, but it's 1/8 thick.They are warranting there header for 5 years unlimited miles.
I will post pictures of this project.
