Cool. Yea I just picked this one up cause it already had the wires out for you splice into and a color/pin diagram. I didn't really look much further than that one. Thanks for the info. Save where you can for sure

You and me both man. Just waiting to get paid so I can get things going. Soon as that happens, just wait for everything to come in and install. I'll do another thread on the turbo itself later on. I have to see what kind of numbers I get from it and reliability. Just the waiting game; its killing me. So close but so far away. Next week should be getting a bunch of stuff so I'll have more updates and pics for everyone.

So what did you figure out about the MaFia? Is this necessary for optimum tuning? Depending on how your turbo treats you I might pick one up too. The Saab turbo I have would work well according to the maps I found but fabricating the downpipe is gonna be a pain in the butt to find the right flange. I don't wanna make a one off system and then want to upgrade it later to do it all over again lol

With boost a MAFia is a MUST if not you have to use the "Failed Maf Tables" and in my opinion thats a HUGH mistake

Thank you Tom. I know I want to have as few issues as possible and have a reliable set up once I piece everything together. I'm hoping to work with you when the time comes.
