Default need help tuning turboedit, or evans-tuning? car almost done w/ tons of pics

basically, i built my d16a1 motor for my 87 crx dx with a ton of help with a couple friends. im pretty much afraid of tuning turbo edit myself just because i don't really understand the whole program. i don't want to blow the damn thing up just because all of the money i dumped into it. should i try to find local help around King of Prussia, PA, or should i just go to evans tuning to get it done? can anyone around here help me? i chipped my pm6 ecu with datalogging capability via parts from chromes website and also bought a plx-m300.

i still have a couple weeks until i have the motor in the car, and it still has to go through break in. i will pay if the person knows what they are doing.
anyways, after a year of hard work, im stoked that this damn thing is almost done, and hopefully i can take it to maple grove before it closes...

car has as follows:

head:
port/polished d16a1 head
2g zc intake mani bored to 60mm
b18b 60mm tb

custom 2.25 & 2.5" piping

sfp 2.5" dp
2.5" exhaust with elec cutout

fuel/electronics:
chipped pm6 w/ datalogging
plx-m300
safc..useless, but maybe break in motor with hack
electronic gauge conversion
edm black headlights/corners
rare tail light center

that's one sick setup in that chassis. me and my bro have an 86 crx and was thinking of doing a similar setup with a b18a1.

Evans doesnt tune TurboEdit as far as I know...

I'm not terribly far from King of Prussia, maybe 2 hours give or take and I have been tuning TE for a while, but you may be better off converting to OBD1 for more options and better tunability any way.

i have owned a 1st gen crx for 5 years. the first one i was planning on doing a built ls/vtec turbo, but for money savings, i slapped a turbo on a d16a1 swap. that thing was fast as hell till the stock clutch failed and a spun a bearing due to an oil leak i didn't know about....whoops. even with the screwed clutch, i beat a 91 civic hatch w/ b16 swap and a 75-100 shot.

anyways, after it screwed up, my friends made fun of me for building a d16a1. i decided to show them that they can make power, and im hoping to beat their swapped cars....*******! haha

also, since this is a completely fresh motor, i know i have to break it in. should i just drive around in low boost stock, with the hack, or break it in without the turbo?

I'm gonna break in my d16a1 motor with a small gt17 @ low boost for 500 miles with my xenocron basemap . Gonna have chris tune it once its broken in. I'm working on a OBD1 conversion myself for later with the t28.
