listen guys, my best friend joe owns the tibby...he purchased this kit from DK (DMBN, new screen name i think)...the kit runs pretty smooth and pulls pretty hard...we dyno'd our cars last weekend at Carboy and he made 221hp and 210ftlbs on 3 psi...

he would like to know what kind of tuning/standalone/emanage kit would be the best for him...i know i should have just PM'd DK, but i would like to get some more input from ya'll...all i know is that's it's a 60 trim, but i have no clue what questions ya'll are gonna throw at me...any information would help tremendously...

here's a couple pics of his car:

Whats up Carlos. Does you want to go with a Piggy back ? If so I would get a Mafterburner. stage 2 plus with the Wideband so he can tune when he need if he wants to change the Boost !

Yeah you get it from Ngm. There is a sponsor section, just scroll down. There are a couple of version of it. I think from 350 to where i am 650.00 with wide band. This is so much better then what he has. It is laptop based though. tell him to talk to us guys in the Newtiburon Houston Thread. We have a couple Car boosted now . He is the first turbo though.

The MAFterburner is the exact same thing as an SAFC, except u can change fuel maps +-100% rather than just 50%, but u have to hook up a laptop to do it. That being said, these really are just MAF signal converters. There is no actually fuel map change, its just lying to your ECU. While this is effective, its not near as good as like the Greddy E-Manage. I really have never heard of anyone hooking up any other unit besides an SAFC or a MAFterburner, because these seem to suffice for the tuning were doing. There are genius' on hear that can tell you what you need to do, but if you call Tim at next generation motorsports, he will tell u exactly what u need to be looking at. If anyone knows a thing or two about boosting a tibby, its him. You can find his shop number under the nextgen forum in the sponsors section (i believe that answers your question if we have vendors on here as well :3_winkthu )

Also tell him that Ryan said to give him a Deal ! one more thing. The mafterburner comes with a Mafextender with when you turn the boost up this will help out alot .

Are you still racing back and forth in Mexico ? I have about the very most 2 weeks to have my car Complete. I have to take out my clutch and send it back to Clutch masters and add a few more minor things and this ***** is going to run !

I would deffnitely go with the mafterburner. I just upgraded to the stage 2 mafterburner because I can hook it up to my wideband, and also switch between 2 different fuel maps through an in cabin switch. For complete control I also upgraded the MAF sensor itself, and matched it with a set of 460cc injectors. I have had 0 problems with this set-up, and it is superior to the SAFC. All these products can be purchased through Next Generation Motorsports. But then again I don't know much, just look at my sig...lol

since hes already using the safcii, try throwing in the Zietronix wideband, that should work pretty decently. Or the AFC NEO + Zietronix combo..

For tuning I would say to use one of the ones product by NGM. I currently have an emanage installed on my car. It's nice but if you dont know what you are doing it could be the biggest pain in the *ss. I would really like to hook up my ignition harness for it but I've been told it would fry my coils packs. I've been looking for other possible ways to hook it up but as of now the only thing that I can do with it is tune the fuel. I've also been debating about upgrading to the emanage ultimate to see if it would eliminate the rev limiter and to see if it could give me a little more options.
