Low boost fuel management options

Hi there
First off let me just say I'm well aware that this thread may annoy certain people.
So my situation is this, I'm in the process very slowly due to lack of time of turboing my prelude. Im building it all myself and didn't buy a exact bolt on kit. Everything is built from universal parts and adapted to the way I want it. I'm not in it for mind blowing power or any sort of what I call 'penis comparing' I'm doing it because it interests me and love projects. That said, I am doing a low boost set up with not the best named parts in the car world which will be replaced as project progresses so I don't really want to pay for expensive dyno tuning as I will be changing my setup in the future. So what I want is for engine to run safely with the turbo parts installed then once it's all built and including internals then take it to the dyno. So afc hack? Fmu? Or base map? I already have a safc in a box and some rc550 injectors. Just want some open minded advice as I don't see the point in going to the dyno and spending a fortune when you don't plan to keep the setup as is.
I'm expecting to be abused as people are gonna say spend spend spend, ideal world yes but remember this is just a hobby.
Cheers

Re: Low boost fuel management options

well you asked for it .. don't do it, horrible idea. Do it right, do it once. Even if your goal is 200whp, having the right Air/Fuel mix is very important. I wouldn't run this setup without at least an ameteur street tune. Basemaps are hit or miss, but I never had good luck with them. Leave this project alone until you save up to do it properly. Buy a beater car instead, it'll serve you better than this short-term project.

I have to unfortunately agree. You need at least an amateur street tune to run boost period. I hate to be the one saying spend, because I know just how annoying that is, but you will just ruin your motor running without a tune.

Everyone here is going to agree with street. Get the best parts you can afford and do it right the first time, cuz lets face it, your going to want more power later on.

Re: Low boost fuel management options

running an engine w/ a turbo thats not tuned is not a good idea the improper air/fuel mixture will lower your gas milage instead of increasing it and it will be like hell on engine.
