    :emofo: you don't need an MAP sensor- you need an MAP sensor bypass in order to not throw a CEL and sure with proper tuning you can run 3-5 psi, but why bother. Like stated above, just tune properly and run around 7 psi- don't just slap a fuel pree regulator on there and a new fuel pump and boost away- oh and PS- this is the wrong forum!

    this has nothing to do with a swap.

    please use the right forums.

    you can do it..but without internals like they said you wont be going over 3-7 psi, which on that turbo must be like 130 cfm (weak shit). for the money you'll end up spending thats pathetic, you'll be at 140 or so hp i bet if you're lucky
