Me too. I bought my "adapter" (M12x1.5 to -10AN) from treadstome performance. What about you?

Please don't get an ebay wastegate. That's the one piece (along with boost gauge and wideband) that I am willing to spend big money on. A bad wastegate could either blow your engine or prevent you from making boost

Searching for a name brand one. Build isn't happening quickly anyway. A 38mm gate should be enough to bypass enough to make 6-8lbs right?

That's what I'm doing. I'm getting a TiAL F38

Injectors aren't stock. I made my own base map for the injectors a while ago to get me by, but I don't expect that tune to work given the different maf I'm running. I have a custom flashed 512 and 64

Did you add any fuel or is it "stock" injector fuel values but scaled specifically for your injectors?

I'm asking because I want to see if my car will idle with the stock tune when I test fit everything

I asked for files from others that have had George G tune their car, because I have already paid him and am continuing to work with him. He is currently sick so I'm just trying to get the car rolling. I feel like giving out the files otherwise would not be doing his work justice

Gotcha. I thought it was their own tunes. I'm going with George too

Yeah he's been very helpful to me. Over 40 emails before I even committed and paid him

Oh hell no. Bought everything separate

You think that would cost less?
I don't know what injectors it's gonna be. I just assumed that a MAP tune would be less of a headache

My cost for the maf used, injectors used, and tune was 650

That's $1000 less, looks like I'll be piecing together a kit.
Can't go wrong with Bosch green giants or Siemens deka injectors, right?

I bought a tial wastegate off of bimmerforums for $95 but it had a torn diapghram so +$60 = $155 which isn't too bad. Please be careful with that ebay waste gate

Depending what fuel you use. My injectors are 680cc at 3.5 bar. I bought used Bosch 298 injectors and used plug converters. The maf was used as well. All is working. Whatever you do, buy real injectors

Yup. I was watching videos on ebay injectors yesterday and I was surprised how bad they were. Currently I'm gonna be on regular 91 no E85 so I think any injector that's quality and a bit more than stock should do me well

Right. The other problem with cheap injectors is getting correct data for flow and latencies

Another yup. Cheap injectors are out of the way for me
