After Turbo installation...

Im planning to do a TMA street kit possibly next year. I had a question, say I install the turbo kit, would I be safe to drive it to the shop I want to tune my car? Its about 4-5 miles away from my house. I dont want to run lean for some reason, not know it, and melt my engine.

Re: After Turbo installation...

You are going to want to trailer it to get tuned...you will have major problems getting it to idle, moreless run after the install.

That would be the best / safest way to do it.

Re: After Turbo installation...

If you're upgrading the fuel system, it will be drowning itself and pretty much getting washed with fuel. The onlt times it should be cranked before getting tuned is to get on the trailer, off the trailer, and onto the dyno. But yeah, when you are done and start it up, you will understand completely and not want to have to start it like that again. It made me sad

Re: After Turbo installation...

I just realized your username says Ibanez player. I just purchased my first guitar a few months ago, albeit used, but an Ibanez. I'm learning though.

sorry for jacking the thread.

Yea man I love Ibanez guitars. My first guitar ever was an Ibanez GSA60, and I still use it all the time, its been about 4 years now and still works great. Good lookin out for my username though!

Re: After Turbo installation...

That's Gibson though, or Epiphone if there isn't enough cash flow

None-the-less terrific choices. I'd say Gibson too if I could afford it.
