This is my first turbo setup...I was running NA before.

Exhaust is 2.5 inch Greddy Evo Exhaust.

Going to run a 2.5 inch downpipe probably.

My friends b7 lasted about 4 days on 19psi on a t3 that he got from a saab or something like that. That thing pulled nasty as shit but when it blew up it blew up in style LOL
damn 19 lbs for 4 days!!! it must have had hellaz rich and retarted tuning! my b7 lasted 4 days on 9 lbs lol...

i dont have any pix of it mounted but i could probably get some this weekend... ill try to remember... the oil drain should be pointed down, but a little bit of an angle wont hurt... i had to point mine at a slight angle so that the inlet would clear the manifold... im sure you know how to clock the center section of the turbo...

Well,

I'll be running the FMU for a couple days, while I wait for my boy to get me dyno tuned...

Car has never had a problem, runs like a champ, burns no oil, and the block and pistons are pretty clean.

Hopefully I'll have no problem running it on the FMU for like a week, ya'll are scaring me lol. It will then be tuned on RC440's on Crome.

Think I should have any problems? I'm not going to beat it on an FMU, but I'm not going to drive like a grandma.

FMU's suck because they dont retard ignition with the raise in boost... they only spit more fuel... this is why we all say they suck and dont use them... im sure you will be fine for a couple days, but dont punch the gas too hard or you will go boom!

Ok, cool.

My car right now is fully tuned on Crome for my NA setup...so it's running perfect.

Think that will help for the time I'm using my FMU?

I do not have a boost controller at the time lol.

Should I just borrow a manual boost controller, and keep the boost level low until I can get tuned?

What you think boys? I'm going to be using the Walbro 255lph fuel pump at all times of install.

boost controllers will not lower boost, only raise it... lowest boost possible is set by the spring in the wastegate... whatever wastegate/spring you are using is the amount of boost you will see.

is your turbo internally gated or do you have an external wastegate?

you cant turn down the boost with a boost controller, only up. With a light right foot and an eye on the boost gauge you should be alright for a little while with a basemap until you get it tuned. Just DONT floor it
