What's the gain with an FI tuner kit

Not getting it, unless you already have the right set of injectors and fuel pump sitting around.... I'm probably missing something. Do tell!

Depends on which one, but a centri tuner kit will give you about +125ish HP in gains. Just add a BAP instead of a new fuel pump. All of the "specials" that include a BAP and injectors as well as tuning is the way to go IMHO. If you are asking what is necessary beyond a tuner kit, it would just be missing the tuning. The add ons start to give you more HP per dollar after you get your base or tuner kit. A "tuner kit" should in reality be called a "base kit"

That's what I figured just wanted to confirm. What I meant by "gains" was, what's the major difference between the two in parts. I understand the power gain portion.

We got the "Beefcake Special Vortech" from Vortech, Mustang, Performance Cars | TeamBeefcakeRacing.com
Made 636 rwhp BEFORE we added a 3.33 pulley and wastegate now, so we are pushing 650 to the rear wheels and over 500 rwtq. The entire "buying experience" could not have been better with Terry. Answered a lot of questions I had and steered me to save $ instead of upselling me and taking more $ from me.

Hi DeerSlayer, your Sig doesn't really mention what engine builds if any you have on your GT, it just hints about 3 cars worth of Boss parts being used. Is your GT engine's internals "beefed up" for your FI Kit with the Boss Parts?
