Default New to the forum, not to spooling though

Hello all, from League City, TX.

I'm new to the forums and have lurked around here for awhile, while deciding what to do with my car as far as force-fed methods.

I'm 33, live in an apt, have a full shop at my disposal (thankfully!), married to a great gal, have 2 kiddos, and play guitar.

The vehicle:
2002 Mazda Protege5 wagon.
mods to date:
KLDE 2.5L v6 swap, MTX swap, all wiring and fab'n done by me.
HP to date = 158.8 HP - 147 lb/ft.

Seriously debating tossing a 7-8 psi system together and running it with a piggyback FMS for fueling reasons.

Budget builds are my thing. I performed the FSDE 2.0 4-cyl to KLDE 2.5L 6-cyl swap for under 2G's.'s time for more powah. I've studied plenty about this engine and it's potential for boost. In most cases - it's safe to run 7-8 psi on a stock bottom end and stock internals - any higher though.....time to crack her open and start building it up a tad.

I just thought I'd introduce myself, tell ya'll what my plans are in the soon to be future, and request definite feedback, suggestions, and instruction.

Take care and I look forward to hearing from "yall".
