    Good day all,
    I know I ask a lot of dumb questions but here is another one seeking input from seasoned vets
    I just picked up a Vortech V1 S trim kit used for cheap.
    I have a 95 gt with a few bolt ons
    Anything else I would need to make this setup efficient??

    Vortech v1 s trim
    255lph in tank
    42# injectors
    90mm lighting maf

    Do I need any of the following???
    -t-rex 255 inline pump
    -FMU
    -vortech boost timing master
    -Anderson powerpipe.

    Thanks a lot.

    Cheers

    The Lightning MAF will not work unless u get your ECU tuned or reflashed. Even though the MAF is calibrated for 42lb injectors, it will not work cause the factory ECU is calibrated for 19lb injectors. This will make it run real rich and I mean RICH.

    Ok so probably won't be drivable to the dyno about 30 mins away? I know I need to get the ecu tuned. Just tough to find someone locally

    The lightning maf is not calibrated for anything but to measure air flow..it can be use with any injector size. you don't need anything else but a tune.. as long as you have the complete kit. You could get a base tune to get it to run and get it to the tuner.

    Also you could just get a 340lph pump instead.. so you don't have to worry about the inline pump.. or get the high pressure 255..
