Ya...take it to a dyno tuner. That is some complex stuff and if you don't know do you really want to risk your engine. They have to custom write the fuel maps due to how much boost at all rpms. I would take that "investment" to a profesional

Re: How to tune turbos

most dont know enough to tell you how to tune, and by your question I assume you dont either. Thats why its far better to leave it up to a professional that has experience with your type of car and turbo setups. Might cost more... but might be cheaper than a rebuild with a bad tune

Tuning is not that bad I swapped in an 84 svo engine and tranny into my pace car and used a megasquirt for engine management and it is mostly stock engine except for an to4e turbo and 16 psi 60 lbs injectors a frontmount intercooler and upgraded exhaust I can walk mildly modded cameros all day. It just takes a bunch of time and patience.

Re: How to tune turbos

the simple fact that you are asking the question means you should definatley take it to a tuner. every car and set-up is different.
