Turbo build
 
So I started my turbo build. Using and SPA manifold, t3t04e turbo. Tial wastgate and BOV. 60 lb injectors, 2.5 inch intercooler piping. 3 inch blow through MAF tube. 3 inch exhasut all the way back. Just had a question about the J&S everyone talks about. does everyone with a turbo run this safegaurd? The car is not going to run any longer than to make sure nothing leaks and drive on the trailer to go to the dyno to get tuned. Ill post pics later of the progress.

Just an FYI... It seems that everyone (including myself) who has run a 3" Blow-Thru MAF housing has been through hell trying to tune it correctly. There has been a couple of DIY'ers that have run the OEM MAF meter with a 2.5" Blow-Thru housing & the Diablosport MAFia. I plan on coverting to this setup when I return from deployment. My idle has gone to crap between the 3" MAF Housing and the Mustang MAF Meter being used.

I think you have to have the safeguard if you are driving an SVT.

Your issue isnt with the 3 inch MAF tube but with the tuner LOL, The 3 inch and the 2.5 are the same to tune its just knowing how to do it , yes blowthrough it a little trickier to do mainly because people make it harder then it has to be in the tuning part

Even with the 3 inch MAF you will need the diablo MAFia , loose the not needed Mustang MAF and use the Focus MAF , Never understood using the Mustang MAF

Put it this way had I bought a J&S when I installed my turbo I'd probably still be on my stock motor....two sides to that, I'd still be on a stock motor and would have a little fatter wallet and I would still be on my stock motor and probably would feel as safe running 20pounds of boost....I say get one its money well spent.

Tom, my tuning is going to be done by PSI Motorsports in PA.

Intercooler looks offcenter....that would drive me nuts.
