Just a few quick questions, I have some knowledge with turboing cars, I turboed my E36 about 2 years ago and it's been running great, TRM tune, 42lb injectors, Tubonetics 50 trim, etc... around 350whp.

Please don't flame me, and I'm not another guy just saying it's easy, I know what's involved, but I'd like to turbo my RC51.

I want more power, but I don't want to get rid of this thing, I love how it handles, feel, sounds, everything, just want some more power, and I love FI!


So, does anyone know what the stock fuel injectors can handle, and if a power commander is enough to tune for a turbo? Thanks!

The Power Commander is not setup to SAFELY tune for a turbo. There is not enough resolution in the timing and fuel tables, there are NO volumetric efficiency tables, no way to add or decrease timing versus coolant temp, no way to view engine load, etc. etc. etc. A standalone ECU such as MOTEC would be the only method I am aware of, but I am not familiar with them at all in this application.

Talked to a tuning company, Mr. Turbo in Texas. Real nice guy and has been helping me out. He told me the stock computer will work with a power commander, so I am in need of one of them asap.

I need to get the injectors flowed, buy a bigger fuel pump, a regulator, and then obvioiusly the intercooler, turbo, etc...

Looks like I'll be selling my Two Brother's high mount exhaust if anyone wants it.


So, who's got a PC USB for me?


Making progress.
