You cannot use a FMU on a returnless fuel system

The FMU NEVER elimintated the need for a tune , it just closed off the return fuel line and made more fuel psi , it was lack luster at best and did nothing for the load correction or timing issues or any of the other things needed for adding boost

You can use one of those msd timing retard boxes, but this would be a very crude way and isnt near as good as doing it with a tune.

Besides the obvious header, turbo, piping, oil lines. Speaking of oil lines, where does the inlet oil line come from?

I'm shooting for 200. I'm sure when I get there I'll want more though.
