Haha you should put that turbo to good use since you have some experience. As far as engine management, for the beginning stages ill be using the trd reflash once I get everything installed. I spoke to the technician at toyota who's going to be doing my reflash and was able to get my name in the system so he'll be taking care of me.
Once I have enough dough saved up then AEM ems will be used for optimum performance.
For a/f metering a wideband gauge will be used
LOL.... Yeah, I don't want to get rid of the turbo, so you never know. Wideband is definitely good, I don't believe in running turbo without one, it's like playing russian roulette. Give some thought to running an EGT guage as well, it's a nice backup to the wideband, but not critical.
I never spec'd out our trucks, which is what makes me curious. But some important questions come to mind when I think about turbo'ing.
What size injectors are the factory ones ? They might hit 100% duty cycle quickly if they're not oversized by much.
How much is the factory MAFS capable of metering ? (Which was what I was getting at when I asked you about metering, lol) and what is a compatable replacement if it's maxed out easily.
I'm really curious what these engines can do with a turbo. I try to keep myself away though because I had a really bad addiction to spending money on my old 240 and it cost me a divorce
. It's like doing drugs for me, it gives me a high when I upgrade something and then experience the performance of my efforts and money spent and I get addicted. Since I've been doing the 4x4 thing I seem to be controlling it better than when I was into racing little rice rockets, lol. Plus I have a son now so it helps keep me controlled.
