I have not bought anything yet but I'll probably go with the FMAX kit.

I was probably going to just use the FMU piggyback that came with the kit but would like to go with a Hondata. What do you think? I see you posting for Johnny Mac. I know a guy from where I live that is real good friends with him. Thanks for your replies.

What kind of injectors (cc) should I use with that? Is this the place that has the load dyno that everyone around here talks about?

what he said. The fmax kit comes with injectors and an AIC&gt; If you plan on doing hondata i would not get the fuel management that comes with the FMAX kit. You can order it without those parts and save enough to buy hondata.

Thats the place. Injectors are kinda dependant on what turbo kit you go with, max efficiency of turbo, how much power you want to make, etc.. Many variables.

if you click on the link in my sig there is a pic of my car on Payn's dyno. And as you mentioned it is a MD(mustang dyno) which you get a more accurate reading of your cars power as well as tuning under a load which represents street driving conditions.

Hey, G2 turbo, How much did you pay for Payn to tune your car? I heard that they are pretty pricey.

Payn isnt cheap, upwards of 180/hr. Although whats the alternative, a poorly tuned car, thats what the alternative is. As far as passen goes, i called up there w/ some questions about how they tune and to make an appt. The guy, who was supposedly their hondata tuner knew nothing about injector duty cycle and wanted to tune for peak hp. I never showed up for my appt.

Payn has tuned my car a few times. A month ago his door rate was $165 an hour, can't imagine it went up. He is the closest to cincy that specializes in Hondata, AEM, etc... IMO worth the money and the drive. Check my sig, sohc powa!

Do not take your car to passen!!! first off they do not like hondata(they are big on greddy e-management) I went to passen and asked if they sold hondata and they told me"we try not to sell hondata but we sell greddy e-management systems" and not to mention but over priced. I quess there is a place in Mansfield( about an hour north of columbus off I-71 if do did not know) called rpm motorsports, dont know much about them but they have a dyno, might want to check them out.

Would it be worth it to go to payne to tune with an afc?
Since I'm most likely going to run 440's and an afc. Or should I just save for the hondata, since either way I'll have to wait a little bit after I put my kit on to save up some money.

btw how much you want for the 440's

I dunno about that, if at all possible get the hondata, but the hack is better than nothing.

NOOOOO NEVER and i mean NEVER take your car to passen motorsports...they are the F'in most shady shop ive ever heard of...they dont have a clue what they are doing and charge out the ***...i wouldnt trust them to put gas in my car.

just take it somewhere good and do it right the first time..it will pay off in the end....i know people with lots of potential in their setups and its just not tuned right so its not very fast..then people with less power with a good tune that rips.

oh, and if you are gonna run a turbo honda, just spend the extra money and get hondata...you always see people with the hack switching to hondata..but whens the last time you saw someone post they had hondata but werent happy with it so they put in an afc...if you want the power the right engine managment is cruicial
