Default uping the boost, what to get (injectors,fmu....?)

I'm making a HTM with a t25 on my 93' d16. I'm guessing it will push about 140whp when I'm done(that's what the greddy one does at 5-6 psi). I would like to get more than that, what should I do so I don't blow my engine? This is my first turbo project, so I'm learning. What do I need to up my boost, and still get enough gas to my engine? fmu, dsm 450cc injectors, maybe a greddy blue box, i'm clueless here.

well, if your looking to get a little more than the 5-7 psi the Greddy kit pushes out, I'd use the Apexi AFC and some DSM 450 cc injectors as your fuel management. It all depends on how much money you want to spend too. i mean, you could do your fuel management through the ecu if you wanted, but it might cost a bit more than the AFC hack unless you know how to program ecu's yourself.
I'd try to stay away from the FMU's as they are a mechanical type of fuel management that has close to no tuneability, and can mean trouble for your engine in the future if it wears out.

i'm new to everything, what does AFC hack stand for? Someone also said in another forum that I would have a hard time starting my car with 450cc injectors, do you think that's true?

If all is setup correctly you shouldn't have a hard time starting your car. Check out the new user's faq article in the Forced Induction section of HMT. That should explain alot about what the AFC hack does, how it works, and more.

Or you could go with one of the popular OBD1 Rom Editors floating around (Uberdata, Crome).
