hey guys i have kind of a stupid question for you.if i have my stock d15 supercharged(jr)now running 8psi and my ecu tuned for that.if i go turbo will the same tune work?and will the stock engine hold up to 10 psi or possibly more?and how much of a difference will it make in the end?

U will most likey have to retune if you are going from a supercharger to turbo, the as far as psi goes it depends on ur power goals and the sizeing of the turbo...

you can do it yourself, by doing a street tune if you know what to do and have the equipment, but to have a good tune, you really need the car there and on a dyno

Yea just because they are at the same psi does not mean they are pushing the same ammount of air into the engine, it will need to be retuned. Who tuned your car the first time, I would take it back to them. If you don't want to do that then you only have two other choices, learn how to tune it yourself or leave it the way it is.

about $500 worth of stuff, wideband, laptop, whatever software you are tuning with, an ostrich if you get fancy.

id get a xenocron.com basemap if your ecu is already socketed and then have someone local street/dyno tune.

unless you plan on tuning, then those tools would be a good investment.
