42lb Inj with Tuned Pro-M MAF
 
Can I put my whole turbo kit on my car and drive it to an exhaust shop without doing an ECU tune with 42lb injectors with a MAF tuned for them?

Will my car run like crap or will it make it there? Im going to be running Straight Downpipe to the exhaust shop to have the Top o2 bung put in and have the Wideband bung put in and also make my 3 or possibly 3.5" exhaust while im there...

Reason im asking is its really hard for me to spend the money on a tune when i dont have an exhaust for it yet... Im trying to get everything together for Tom to have a semi pleasant and not such a PITA time to get my car tuned up and ready to go...

Also the TopSpeed Street Intake Manifold will be on the car aswell

You don't need a tune for an exhaust, first of all. You will be fine. The tuner can add the larger diameter piping for the exhaust afterwards...but I doubt it will do very much in terms of programming.

I don't see you running more that 250whp with those injectors...are your goals around there somewhere?

Yes, you car will run like crap. If you stay out of boost and control yourself and it is super close, you'll make it. Don't take it as a guarantee, but it "should" go a few miles. I'd really urge you get it towed if it is NOT tuned and also doesnt have an exhaust on it.

I was making 263whp with my powerworks at 12psi, I plan on running 12-15 psi with this setup and to make 280-300whp hopefully

I would rethink the pro-m and here is why , if you have any issues with it and have to change to even another recal pro-m which they are still in buissness under a diff name then you will have to do a complete retune of your car

Its best to stick with the 3 inch tube with stock maf with the mafia this way if anything goes bad you just change the part and keep going

Ok So just keep my stock MAF and Dont use the Pro M?

Ill use the Pro M just to get me to an exhaust shop and when i finally take the plunge and get the 550 tune I use the stock MAF... Now Do i need a Mafia Maf or the Extension harness because i have no clue what the difference is..

actually what is the point of getting that? The Maf.ia is to control the stock maf? so without the mafia you cant tune a maf? Im just confused thats all

No problem , you need a 3 inch maf tube , c-f-m sells them then take your stock MAF electronics and put in the 3 inch maf tube and get a mafia
