Street Turbo Kit Tuning Nightmares?

Hey guys, I'm thinking of doing a turbo setup... I have a 347 that I built but the whole turbo thing really has me thinking.

The combo would be:

stock shortblock
P heads
B-cam
Explorer intake
Hellion 62mm turbo kit

To start, an A9L.

I'd like to hear your opinions on what methods you did to establish a baseline tune, to at least get the car to the dyno tuner. Also, did anyone have any tuning nightmares with their basic street setup? Thanks, and I hope to be boosting soon

i tune with a standalone unit (megasquirt) but if you were going to do it with stock ECU
first get a wideband setup
lock the timing to 18*
bump up the fuel pressure.
that to me is a #### way /you are better off with a standalone where you can control the fuel and timing yourself..there are plenty of people on here and on Turbomustangs.com that would be glad to help you out with tuning and with setting up a megasquirt.

NO tune !!! stock A9P, timing set at 8* spout IN

PMAS did a great job on the maf. They calibrated it to my cold side and I have NOT had a single issue. it runs better with 42s and the pmas then it did N/A with 24s and a pro-m.

I have no bends with in 12in before or after the maf which I was told helped me a whole lot. I did plan on a tune but after driving/checking plugs ect I didnt see a reason.... I used a narrow band air/fuel gauge as well. It NOT a wideband but combined with reading the plugs it gives me a great idea of where Im at.

At the time I planed on a PMAS maf just to get the car to run good enough to get to a tuner then possibly switch to the SCT maf he suggested but it ran so damn good I left it alone..

NEVER do business with Sam Rivera AKA Sam Wilson.
