I believe that's it, but I could be forgetting something

Dan, you need some gauges to monitor that beast! I think I may order a EGT, A/F, and Oil Temp gauge since the next step for my car is tuning everything. What are good gauges to have if you're going to have n20? Was the Unichip fine when you had your Spicy cams? Is there an interface that an ed user can buy? Thanks.

So far I have oil press. fuel press. and A/F (from my nitrous days as few as they were). I am going to get an EGT gauge as well. I have autometer phantoms in case you wanted to know, they have black trim with white faces so they go really well with the stock faces.

A/F is the only gauge I used, its all i really thought was nesessary.

The unichip tuned the car perfectly with the heads and cams, no problems there at all there, not its not so great, im missing 20% of my power and it is too restrictive for my motor, but like I said, with heada nd cams it is perfect, you dont need to get anything mare than that.

Which nitrous kit are you considering? NX wet kit? Thats my choice by far. but Im goint o stay away from nitrous for a while, i want the motor to be done completely in terms of tuning and the small other things that need to go on, i dont want to have too many things going on all at once and risk over looking something.

What do you want out of your car in th long run? Good N/A setup with nitrous?

My brother is making a c/f backing for my gauges right now, he has the stuff to do it. He has an MR2 and he's making the door panels out of c/f to shave weight (its a gutted interior track car).

anyway, ive rambled enough!
