at the minimum, you could run an FMU. that raises the fuel pressure according the the boost it receives.

cranking that aem fuel regulator is gonna give you too much gas when you don't need it.

if you have a 92-95, you could chip your ecu and run uberdata.
a must is to read the Engine Management FAQ https://www.homemadeturbo.com/forum/...threadid=14497

Jesus man, proof read your posts before you actually post them. That's all fucked up.

I get the feeling English isn't his primary language...

But hands down the best way to go is to chip your ECU and add larger injectors.

For OBD-0 people use Turboedit, for OBD-1 people use Uberdata or Crome. Only certain ECU's can be chipped and if you don't know what you're doing it's better to either get to know what you're doing or have somebody else do it.

for those people out there thinking they are english pro!
I have bought english for dummies!! so how s this for a proof read....> fku
thanks guys for the advise!
chipping the ECU looks very difficult. I have read the links, but i did not understand anything, that is why i tryed to ask to see if anyone could explain it in plain english. Since, some people think english is not my primary language does anyone have pictures or diagrams showing me how to chip my ecu?
DO I REALLY NEED TO DO THIS IF IM ONLY TRYING TO GO 8PSI?
would FMI be a cheap and safe way to go 8psi?

if you don't want to do anything electronic, then buy a Vortech FMU and a check valve (missing link) and you'll be good to go. Don't go over 7-8 psi though.

8 psi will give me around an additional 80hp?

being that my engine right now is giving me about 120 (d16 95ex engine on it) plus 80hp will be running around 200hp?
or how does it work??

thank you for your help!

8 psi will give you closer to 60 hp, depending on the turbo you're using, and that's at the crank... not at the wheels, where it matters. If we're talking about the wheels, then you're probably closer to 105hp. With 8psi, you'll be around 150-160 i'd say. Maybe more, but not likely. Good tuning can get you some additional power, but you can't tune that setup to it's full potential using that kind of fuel management. You can run turbo and not blow up your engine using an FMU and a Missing Link, but to take full advantage of the turbo setup you'll need to stop being lazy and learn about how to chip your ecu or buy standalone engine management.
