whats your budget? if you do it right, you can work all 3 together well - headwork, cam & chip, all suited to match the other. better than doing it all at different stages! :wink:

Still, the later you get the chip, the less you have to spend on retuning for every different mod. Take that into accound mate, especially seeing that UNIchips i think are dyno tuned which costs losts of moolah!!

Get the new JMM Turbo Kit. 240rwkw on stock injectors for ~$11,500. Add a FMCI and bigger injectors, bigger turbo and you're gonna be going crazy :)

Thats what I wanna do, but convincing myself to drop ~14k into the Ford is a biggie. :oops:

That sounds aweful expensive - spose it is JMM.

Snort will do a turbo kit for $3,500 and you still have to add plus FMIC + chip. So you're talking some power (or more) for $5K or $6K

Well I guess if you can't install it yourself labour prices will raise it a bit. But still won't be $10K
