Ordered kit... Tuning ?

Hey guys, first of all i ordered my on3 kit, so wish me luck.... and also i have 55# injectors with a pro m maf calibrated to 55's with a bbk FPR, stock rails with a 255lb walbro and t rex inline..... I was wondering, A) what you guys would think about tuning it myself temp. with fuel pressure and timing, and yes i have a wideband. This would be a very temporary thing like maybe a month so i can get the bugs worked and out hit the last few car shows of the season? B) What would you guys recomend tuning with? sct chip or quarterhorse?

I know there are alot of turbo small block guys running some impressive times with manual tuning, so i know it can be done, but im worried about my 55lb injectors causing an issue... thanks for all the help in advance

You won't know until you try it. Some cars won't even idle with the bigger injectors and some have no problem at all. Sometimes clocking the MAF in different positions will make a difference. Good luck with the build.

I bought the Qh from Power adder solutions and Chris was superb to deal with. He supplied me with a base tune and I ended up paying him to finish the tune because he was so easy to work with. Been running mine at 15psi on a stock motor for several months now without an issue.

My car would run with the stock computer and calibrated MAF bot it was night and day compared to even the base tune and QH I received from Chris.

yeah lol im am fully aware of the problems on this kit, more or less its gonna be a base that i will build off of, and expect problems thats what happens when you can get one for half the cost of most kits out there.

great thats what i was wanting to hear i was planning on going with quarterhose but i was always open to the idea of bobcat tuning it with sct or whatever he uses... (hes a local tuner around here with a very good rep for turbo stangs)
