partial kit... how do i.....

... pick a wastegate? the kit has all the piping except the turbine flange, and all it needs is a wastegate, MAF/injectors, and maybe a BOV. how do i figure out what wastegate i need? i only plan on running 9psi max. the turbo is a holset H1E, if that helps. i know it's small, but i searched the forums and found a lot of people running these on way more radical motors than mine.

as for the fuel, should i get a set of 42#, or will 36# be sufficient? my combo is a 9:1 342, TFS-1 cam, Track Heat intake, and GT-40 heads.

are blow-off valves necessary? or is it all basically a bunch of ricer crap?

42's would be better, but if you are able to locate an fmu, then you can run the 36er's or install an inline fuel pump to go along with your intake fuel pump to help ensure that you have plenty of fuel.

yes, what it does is, when you let off of the throttle body and the throttle body plate closes, you have all that boost still in the airside piping, the bov allow's release of that air so that your turbo isn't damaged...

just look into a deltagate racegate wastegate.

is there anything special about the BOV i should look for? i've seen the deltagates on Ebay all over the place. where in the system does that go anyway? right off the turbo i'm assuming, but i'm pretty sure this kit needs the flanges, so it's still gonna take some fabwork.

Dont' waste your money on a Deltagate. It's not big enough and you'll end up with boost creep.

i am running two deltagate wastegate's and havent had any issue's yet! And just a quick understanding of a wastegate verses a Bov, the wastegate goes before the turbo, mine are located just off of the header tube's before the go into the turbo, when boost is sensed and it tries to go beyone your set point, say 9Psi, the wastegate open's to relieve the extra exhaust gas's.....

The Bov is used just before your Maf, maybe 10 to 12"s back. This is used so that when you let off the gas pedal, the compressed air that was going into your engine, doesn't get forced to a stand still or worse yet, spin your turbo backwards. It is the part of the turbo system that make's that kewl wooooooshing sound....

Two would work, but one Deltagate is inadequate.

I thought the Deltagate was long since replaced with a better unit by turbonetics, I'd shop around for a Tial since they can be had for $190-220 new and some guys are changing over to Turbosmarts(sp?) so you can find them used every once in awhile for $150
