We use Gen 7 dfi On the capri and its pretty nice and seems pretty easy. I don't do much personally with it but the data logging is incredible and the car is on the money throughout the entire run.
It IS the better way to go.
Now we just need to find a way to make it cheap!!!
Then I will be on board.

Once I get the MS 2 with the ver 3.0 board working and all I am going to post all my mapping and programming so the combination can be available to do easily. I dont think it will be as fast as you guys would want but I will be the guinea pig and figure it out.

It looks like nice system but Its hard to tell what your getting until you own it unfortunately.

Any Idea on price??
It looks like it can be upgraded too.

Default Turbocharging books.........

I just picked this one up at Barnes & Noble. I flipped through it and it appears to be very detailed. It even has all of the turbo math stuff in the last section. Anyone else have it?

My turbo education officially begins today.

SD thats one I haven't read thanks for posting it.

As far as maximum boost I like to keep it handy Theres great info in there and I have read it so many times its rediculous.

It amazes me after running my car for a while I forget things because I don't need to use the info. Then I make a change or something and I pour over posts and books to figiure out what I want to do before I do it. This way I am not saying damn I should have done this differently.

Ok I still say that but not as often.LOL

I'm still a greenhorn! No books just bloodshot eyes from pouring over too many forum boards! I guess I should really go get Maximum Boost. Everyone says it is THE book for turbos.

Default this thread will help you build your own blow through carb

http://www.hangar18fabrication.com/blowthru.html

This guy is great he offers this info to people for free to help them build thier own blow through carb's

That knocks some cash off the project so if you use it, drop him a note and let him know you appreciate it if you can.

Its a small price to pay for someones time.

Thsi is another link suggested by one of our memebers
