You'll get a lot more help with more information about your car. What year car? What fuel system is on it? What are your power goals? Knowing what fuel system is on the car will help you get tuning options.

Maybe think about throwing a period, or possibly a comma in there too.

Hey guys sorry I didn't get back to you any sooner I've been super busy working 60 hour weeks honestly I don't have high power goals I just wanted a few extra ponies. I don't want to blow the motor up I've watched YouTube videos on it and everybody's getting 14 for their air fuel ratio gauges. And that's with a rising rate fuel pressure regulator. I really don't want to put too much money into it I already have all the stuff and in a year or so I plan on putting a LS in it I just really wanted to enjoy a turbo because it's something I never experienced in a car before and it's a goal that I've always wanted to have in my car the car is a 89 Volvo 240 wagon it has the ew70 automatic and it has the ignition system where the distributor is on the block not the head any help would be greatly appreciated

It is a 89 Volvo 240 wagon with the ignition system where the distributor is on the block and not on the head. The fuel system is completely stock.I'm not looking to get a lot of power out of it I'm just looking to get a few extra horsepower I've always wanted to experience a turbo on a car never even driven in one never driven one always wanted to they make cool noises they pull decent and just I like a lot about them I think they're very cool and I have all the parts to put the entire turbo kit on I'm literally missing nothing other than no way to tune the car
