    alright so i got everything apart i guess i over torked the pan bolt and pinched the gasket to hard and it split on two corners i just gave it the RTV orange special so i'm waiting a few and i'm going to tighten it back up and see what happens
    hopefuly this will work cause i have no where else to get a gasket today and i have to drive this car to work tomarrow

    LOL nothing yet just got the FPR wide open and i'm not pushing it only taking it up to 4 lbs right now i have an 8 lbs waste gate so i cant go much father anyway
    i dont think i'm going to need any managment anyway i'm not rying to kill things with this car just make it a little faster
    i will be picking up a new fuel pump in a couple days to boost my presure up and i think that will be all i'll need but i havent gotten that far yet so will see what happens i have another motor on stand bye if anything goes wrong

    you will need at least a safc or something. it doesn't do any good to build a motor and not tune it a little bit.

    tune with what you can afford. trust me man, it will be a better power/dollar investment than any other mod at this point. plus with all your fuel mods, you really need to get it set right.

    if you want it done right, you should try crome or hondata. something like that. if you want to do it cheap, an safc will work.
