Re: Turboing a 2000 v6

you may want to post up some more specs on the the turbo.... as well as PSI that you'll run it at. That way people that know more than I do can help out. You could always go totally safe on the throttle body and just get a 75 mm. I'm not sure on injectors.

Re: Turboing a 2000 v6

I'd go with the lightning 90mm maf so you don't grow out of it. as already said we would have to know how much hp you're planning on so you can decide on the best injectors.
Before I wrecked my six I was getting all my turbo parts together and I was just planning on keeping the o2 sensors in their stock position. I've seen people have one on the cold side and then others argue that its the wrong way to do it so I'm not sure about that. depends on how you set up your piping.

Both o2 sensors need to remain between the heads and the turbo on the hotside

Re: Turboing a 2000 v6

I carry a 42lb pencil injector from the 03/04 cobra that is a drop in replacement and is good for at least 400rwhp on a turbo car. The easiest fuel pump solution is to drop in the 310lph that I also carry. I would run an 05+ style maf in blow-through, I have all the sensors, adapter harnesses, and flanges or housings on my site to make it work well. The 90MM Lightning maf would not work very well in blowthrough and would peg early.
