Vortech purchase qustions

So buying tomorrow I have two options

Option A
Vortech tuner kit
Buy 60 pound injectors
Brenspeed tune
Install and 3 yr warranty on s/c
Price otd 5100

Option B
Vortech kit from team beefcake
1000 id injectors
Boost a pump
Lund tune
Install by friend for free
5300 otd
So which would you do in this case my neighbor is a mechanic and will do it for free and teach me as we'll but I have no idea if the boost a pump and bigger injectors are worth not having it installed at a shop thoughts ?

It's really hard to say without a complete break down. I do know brenspeeds kits are absolutely complete and run a consecutive tune till you can dyno.

Is brenspeed installing there's, or are you and a friend.

The ID 1000's are quite a but more than you would need for 600 rwhp, but the BAP is pretty much essential. At 600 rwhp without a BAP your fuel system is pretty much maxed out and a spike in boost could easily be the end of your motor. Brenspeed is a pretty good shop but even they can't foresee something like that.

Either way I would install it myself, if you really want to be a gear head and learn about your car, the best way is by doing the work yourself with the help of a friend. Plus you'll have a lot more pride in yourself for doing it that way.

Just be careful if you have stock internals.

Well the option 2 is coming from beefcake and me and my mechanic friend would do it in about 2 days . Then I would have Lund do a remote tuning session until I make the 4 hr drive to them to do a dyno one . First option is no pump / been speed tune but a local mustang club forum sponsor will install it which is peace of mind . But honestly looking at instructions it seems like a lot but really isn't since it's all bolt up

Tuff decision, the bap would be a concern if you ever upgrade the pulleys. Not sure without looking, but I think the bap cones with the upgrade. I'll be going with brenspeed because they're just a couple hrs away.

Well to be honest I don't feel the need for 1000 pd injectors and the boost a pump due to I want to be conservative for now. When I build it I will def add those things but as far as power goes 600 is fine with me don't need more and that's what those items are for

If its your daily driver then I'd say have a reputable shop do it just in case you break something or mess something up that will take a few days or a week for part to come in. Then again they can also slip up. But it's always fun to accomplish everything yourself if capable.

Option two is the best bang for buck either way after I finished I would get it to a Dyno ASAP to have it safely tuned
