Default Cheapest, Easiest Way To Manage 14-16psi

Im new to boost but have read most of the FAQ's and such on here and TurboD16.

First Ill tell you what I wish to accomplish/use.
-Sohc zc motor, forged rods, arias 8.5:1 pistons
-stock head with zex valve springs/retainers and exospeed sr909 d16a6 cam
-dsm 450's
-large (24X7X3) intercooler
-large t3/t4 turbo (unknown specs)

I need a way to tune/manage this. I dont know much but I was set of going with the AFC hack but I read its only good for 10psi.

I know Hondata or Uberdata are availabel but there not in the budget. Whats a saf/inexpensive/easy was to tune this car.

And yes Im new so bare with my mistakes and silly questions.
Thanks

Use the afc to 10psi and trust that by the time you get that running you will learn all about turboedit. Turboedit is an obd-0 rom editor much like hondata, but freeer (is free-er a word? ) You will find better luck by using the afc to 10psi until you get some research time under your belt.

Turbo edit 12 can edit up to 3 bars (about 21 psi). Its the map sensor that limits your boost. If you buy a 3 bar map and use turbo edit your going to be in the money

you CANNOT cheap out on your management system if you're planning on running 14-16 psi, especially if that's on a larger turbo.

unless you like throwing money away when you could have spent it on something worthwhile.

save up, get a burner and a wideband, chip your ecu, and do it properly.

You have money into the motor. Don't cheapen it out on fuel management, you'll blow it to bits at that PSI.

Save the money you were going to use on the Arias pistons and get the Suzuki Vitara pistons instead they'll handle 15-20 lbs of boost (do a search here and on HT). Also, get the Eagle H beams off ebay for $300 shipped, I've yet to find a better deal. That'll save you ~$300-400. Use that to buy a wb 02, rom burner, 3 bar map sensor (Summit racing ~$50). If you have a PM6 Ecu that ends in A06 or A09, it's chippable. If not, spend another $50 for a chippable PM6. That's what I'm doing anyway..
