hey guys. was looking around for pictures of n/a turbo conversions and some info from people that have seen them or have done it as to how the car went after tune and any problems they ran into. i found the youtube video of camerons ba xt that was converted. and thats about all i found as to what they go like.. i have the car finished and drivable just waiting on the tune.. was told i dont need a boost sensor just a 2 bar map sensor. if anybody can help or post links it would be greatly appreciated....

what have you done.... aftermarket like mine...or standard xrt parts bolted on?

my boost control is a turbosmart boost tee, and my tuner live tuned my computer so no map sensor needed to be changed

I got 236rwkw and 790Nm on stock box motor and diff, with trans cooler, only recently so well see how she holds up, thats with good fuel economy too, about 12.5l/ 100kms when i drive easy... not so much when i dont though...lol

power depends on how much boost you run, .. a stock standard ba turbo only puts out around 180rwkw..

Excuse my ignorance, but the only time I owned a turbo, it was pre-mechanical savvyness so ai never really learnt much in regards to turbs.

Basically, do what you have mentioned above (after market boost controller and such), is it necissary to have the car tuned or can the stock n/a ecu cope without a tune?

It will need to be tuned, yes.
