turbo system install 1999 gts
 
Hey guys I have a 1999 GTS and I was wondering when I install my turbo system on low boost ( 6 lbs ) can get away for the time with just a good tune and upgraded injectors? or do I need to up grade the fuel pumps or put a boost a pump on the car? I just want to get the project started and then add from there.

thanks in advance

I would at least add a Boost-a-pump. But if you're going thru the trouble to install a TT, might as well do the fuel system at the same time.

what would you recommend for a fuel system i was looking at the RSI twin pump set up.

and when you say fuel system are you saying all the lines, new rails, etc? or just the hanger and pumps?

Absolutely. I have the RSI setup in my cars. Triple in tank, or the double 450's. -8 to the fuel rail, -6 return

I also have the RSI set up. The CNC fuel hanger is very nice quality. The dual 450 would be plenty. That supports 1000+ at the wheels on E85. Get the plug and play harness they offer. Makes the install a piece of cake.

I have triples in the tank and changed out lines and injectors. Supports 1750+ HP. If you are gonna do it, then do it right the first time. There are things you can piecemeal.

Do all these TT cars run on a complete standalone ECUs like a Haltek, AEM Infinity, Motec, etc....?

Is the boost/power too exponential or too variable to be "SAFELY" tuned with a SCT?

I originally planned on having a custom SCT tune with my build. After having such a chunk of $ into the engine build, turbo system, and fuel system, I really didn't want to spend more on a the EMS at that time. Figured the EMS could be a future purchase. I talked with some tuners, and many of them advised on an EMS, and several would not even tune the car on the stock ECU. After a lot of thought, I decided to just do it right even though it put me over budget, but I was going to learn the software so I could do basic changes at the track myself. I decided on the AEM infinity with RSI harness. It was a plug and play. Very nice harness. I was able to navigate the software pretty easily.

I can honestly say of all the big purchases I made for this build, the EMS was the one I feel was the best investment, and really could not have done without. You have so much data, and control at your fingertips. I couldn't even imagine how difficult it would be with a stock ECU, and frustrating to not have any options for different power levels without another custom tune. It is invaluable when trouble shooting an issue. You would also have to have so many add ons like wide band, and boost controller, etc to make it work, but it would not be a nice package. The fail safe features of a good EMS is also important. The EMS has the ability to control boost by gear, traction control, low/high speed fan, and can switch between 93, race gas, and E85 with a click or turn of the dial.

It is worth the investment if you plan to run a TT set up IMO.

Thanks,

Michael
