As far as MAFs go many people get a Pro-M 70mm, but its cheaper to get a 93 mustang GT MAF. You will also need bigger fuel injectors, I would look in to 42 lbs/hr ones. For cams I recomend the Crower turbo grind, and a 65 mm tb.

42lbs hr injectors are 440cc, 550cc are more then enough, i use rs ones (42lbs) and i'll be running well over 300BHP (engine power) so 550cc should be more then enough unless you are going for silly amounts of power..... are you???

turbo ground cams tend to be fairly mild as you dont want to increase the compression, so i would assume that no head work would be required for them. although head work will free up some more power.

not looking for ridiculous power yet maybe someday or if i blow my motor or if i just need more than that setup will give me ill buy toms motor and redo it with more boost. now with stock cams will the turbo produce about 240 to 250 hp to the wheels with that kit and shouldn't i get a 70mm tb or is it not necessary. and do i need adjustable cam gears? i am going to change clutch, gears, and flywheel do i need to change anything else for that kit?

Wheel HP is hard to relate to, some companies run in 4th others in 5th. In the UK Flywheel is used 1, because you know you are increasing the engines power 2, Small things can change the WHP although not by masses but still it will effect it.

for example at a recent rolling road day a car was wheel spinning in 4th, so the run was made in 5th (as the rolling road is able to calculate the losses then add them to the WHP giving you the Fly wheel) the loss at the wheels was over 60BHP, apposed to the 40BHP when run in 4th. it may be a different story in the states but that how it done here. also 15" wheels gave 10WHP extra then 17", but then because its loses are calculated the Fly wheel BHP stayed the same.

with that turbo i would say you should see 280BHP with stock cams (flywheel)

What does the manifold look like

If the turbo is new does it have a warranty

You will need a MAF and some form of tuning

I find it hard to beleive that its all new and good quality stuff for 1400.00
