i would go intake, dp, exhaust, fcd, suspension. learn to drive the cars with those mods first. after those mods, blow your load on more serious engine upgrades. turbo, fmic, ecu, injectors. thats just me. better to know your car than lose your car
You forgot engine rebuild after FCD. Sure, some of us can get away with full exhaust and intake on a stock fuel system, but some of us can't. I say beef up the fuel system before the exhaust.

Yes, especially on s4(s), don't go beyond a 2.5" dp on a s5 and you won't have wg issues...But atleast get a fuel pump.

Alright. I've been told to run 720 secondaries, Walbro fuel pump (size?) and a s-afc first. Then add my other mods.



On rx7club.com, someone talked about openning the wastegate (leaving it open) what does that mean?

So at what point (injector sizes, boost levels) does it get past the point of running an oem ECU with a piggyback and get to the full blown standalone?

I believe its entirely up to you. If you got to a point where you keep on buying more piggy backs, switch to an stand alone. At Microtech prices, I believe almost everyone should switch to EMS after all the exhaust work has been done and you have to go buy a FCD and an SAFC. Just in my opinion. I'm pretty sure other people have different views.

if you are planning on opening the exhaust, putting a intake on and messing wtih the fuel **** you might wanna consider getting a halltec or a motec system. and get it tuned.
