Default I'm New to turbos help me out.

ok heres my problem...i got a turbonetics turbo kit from my friend and its brandnew and i have a crx witha b16 stock motor in it, i dont wanna go all out just a lil boost for fun ya know...well he gave me a fmu from vortech and a walboro(sp)255 fuel pump and he gave me integra intercooler piping... heres my problem is there no way i can use the fuel pump and the fmu to manage the turbo and engine? im not rich and i saved a really long time to get this kit but a local shop told me i was screwed but i could get an ecu for 1000 dollars to fix it...lol i dont have that does ne one have any diffrent techs or do you think i can use these?

haha...$1000 for an engine computer.

The FMU & pump will be ok if you are staying below 5 psi. But thats really no fun.

You want TurboEdit.


Chipped ECU & RPM activated switch (for VTEC) will run you $200 if you dont do it yourself. If you can find a PS9 ECU here in the classifieds, even better. (No VTEC switch needed)

Then you need to learn how to tune or find someone in your area willing to help you tune it in.

Read the FAQ here and search for TurboEdit. There are a lot of threads about it including a multi-page thread stickied to the top of this section.

If you need a TurboEdit ECU, chipped and ready to go. Send me a PM when you are ready. But I urge you to do some work...and get ready to learn lots.

if you do go with the fmu just make sure you put a missing link or some check valves on the map sensor, but you should consider turbo edit, i was going to use an fmu as well on that exact smae set up but realized it would run like ----, and im still trying to learn about turbo edit, but i have faith, i'll figure it out... you can too

I agree. . . screw the guy at the shop. he's trying to dig into your pockets. Do it yourself man. .. Turboedit is the way to go. Don't be afraid to learn, 'cuz you HAVE TO if you plan to save any kinda money. Best advice I can give you right now. . . READ. Read a lot
