Hey, thought i'd update you guys with the status of my Turbonetics FMAX kit :) . it shipped from their warehouse last friday, and will arrive to the store i ordered through this week, he will send it, and in 2-4 days, i should have it. me and friends have already called out of work for friday-sunday in preparation for the install, which i plan to do at home with a couple good friends. i will document it and hope to post the pics on here, but may just put them on cardomain, and post a link to that page. i don't know if you can tell, but i'm very excited for this, and i'll update the day i recieve it ;) .

that was horrible what happened to you, man. my condolences. i just happened to be in a great spot financially at the time, so i jumped on the option. don't get me wrong, though, now i can barely afford the gauges i need to monitor the kit! i'm hoping to get a better, full-time job ASAP, after i graduate this week to make up for that money.

well it comes fully programmed at 8psi and all set to bolt on and run, so i don't plan any tuning right off. i will dyno it probobly spring next year, then i'll adjust the cam and things like that, but for now, i'll run the cam at 0, just to be safe. eventually, i want an apexi v-afc. i still need to get a boost gauge, oil pressure gauge, and i want a greddy turbo timer, but i may just let it run for a little after driving for now.
