Custom Turbo Kit. Proofread Please

Ok so I just about have everything I need for my .5 bar turbo project and thought I should shoot it past some of the smarter tech guys to make sure I'm not forgetting anything. I would hate to start installing the kit next spring and realize that I'm missing a key component. Also for when I take it to get dyno tuned I want to be sure I have all the EMS stuff so that they can properly tune my car. So starting with the mechanical stuff.

T3/T04E Garrett Turbo (.63 A/R turbine and .50 A/R compressor), tapped oil pan, Oil fittings, steal oil feed and return, treadstone log manifold, treadstone FMIC kit, tial q bov with 11psi spring, tial 38mm .5 bar external wastegate, custom v-band downpipe (with o2 EGT bungs), vacuum lines, 440cc saturated rc injectors with clips, walbro 255lph fuel pump, and next week I'm having kingmotorsports vent and rebaffle my valvecover. (^All gaskets and hardware included for everything mentioned)

Finally for electrical. This is the part that I may need some stuff since I am unsure if the setup im using with throw any CEL's when I boost. So far this is what I have.

Greddy Emanage Ultimate with Boomslang harness, oil pressure and temp gauges, Greddy Peak Hold and Warning - Turbo- EGT- and Fuel pressure gauges, and PLX M300 te wideband.

I am debating if I should use the stock map sensor with the Emanage or just the Greddy turbo gauge since it has a serial output. Also would would a turbo timer be recommended with my setup.

I appreciate the time to look over my setup and would like some input or suggestions on what would make this build even better. My goal is not for the most hp but for sustained power.

I'm not a turbo expert by any means but I've always heard that the Greddy Emanage is very limited to it's tuning capabilities. Most people seem to prefer Hondata (which will require a OBD2 to OBD1 conversion harness).

Well it is true that a standalone unit is better than a piggyback any day for multiple reasons but the emanage ultimate has more than enough capability. You may be thinking of the emanage blue. But I see what you mean.

Re: Custom Turbo Kit. Proofread Please

for the price you will spend on the EMU it isnt worth it. you can run something like Neptune for a very similar price and have full control over everything.

My main complaint about the GReddy EMU is its open/closed loop control sucks. Its very hard to get a good tune down when the factory ecu tries to compensate and adjust fuel when you don't want it to.

Re: Custom Turbo Kit. Proofread Please

HypnoFish I agree with you 100%. Before I purchased the EMU I read up on the pros and cons of the system. I personally chose to go piggyback to get around doing the obd2 to obd1 conversion and loosing my atts. The build I'm doing is geared toward a daily driver and something like autocross so I had a hard time committing to basically turning my sh into a base with 80lbs of dead weight. Ik people will tell me that I risk loosing atts anyways with the added hp but it was worth a shot. All I can say is I hope im making the right choice and all I can do is have everything perfect so that the tune holds.
