Exclamation need some turbo help

ok i got my turbo all hooked up , and i put my injectors in(42lbs) and a 2001 mustang gt maf, and iat sensor, and i have to drive the car about four hours from my house to a tuner, to get a chip tuned, so should i take out the injectors and maf or is it ok to leave them in? and where is the best place to hook up my boost gauge. i aslo need to know on the oxygenm sensor nearest the headers, which color wire is the wire i hook my A/F ratio gauge to cause there is juice to a green wire and a black wire when you have the ignition on, so which one is it? thanks i get some pics up asap for you guys.

well i assume your gonna run either stock intake or a short ram to get to the tuner and leaving your charge pipe off, and you should put the stock injectors and MAF in to get to the tuner and then swap them back in when you get there

Your tuner should be able to mail you abase tune provided you don't go into boost you should be OK.

Either that or put in your stock injectors and maf on your way over...

Or even trailer it...

my tuner said he wouldnt just tune a chip for my car cause he said theres a good chance of blowing my motor, he said just bring it down and put it on the dyno so it can be perect and get the full potential of the car. anybody got any info on the boost gauge or air /fuel ratio gauge situation for me, need to know? thanks

For the boost gauge, I removed my EGR system so I just used the port on the intake manifold and connected my boost gauge up right there.

If you haven't removed it you can simply T into one of the ports on the back of the intake manifold. There are tree of them in a very easy to get to location.

As for the A/F gauge, unless you have wideband (a completely new sensor) its not really of much use. Sell the gauge you got and get a real wideband sensor that actually will be of some use to you. I bought a wideband AEM EUGO, have yet to install it but its definetly the way to go.

Those Diablo base tunes you get just by filling out the Diablo tune sheet are pretty dam good for a base tune I was told. How ever that only works best if your tuner uses Diablo also.

the wideband doesn't hook up to the stock O2 sensors. the guage you have is NOT a wideband. wideband's cost upwards of $350 depending on which company you go with. you'll have to drill a hole in your exhaust, weld a bung on there, and install the WIDEBAND O2 sensor that comes with the gauge. the most popular one seems to be the AEM UEGO. cfm sells them cheaper than anywhere else that I've been able to find.
