    boosting a saturn vue, need help!

    i have a 2002 saturn vue. L61 ecotec, and i need to find a way to tune for boost. i have 85% of the turbo parts just need the ecu to keep up. by my understanding there is no company that supports ecu on my vue, can anyone help me?

    Have you checked to see if hp tuners has support for that ecm? Otherwise I'd look into something like a port fueler with an extra injector controler to control fueling while in boost and letting the stock injectors fuel the motor out of boost.

    cost I'm not sure of but it's basically an extra set of injectors that when senses boost will start to squirt fuel into the intake ports. Hahn racecraft makes them so they probably aren't cheap. Check one out:

    The controler that hahn uses is made by another company. If you have means of locating an aluminum intake mani you could addyour own injectors for the system. http://www.splitsec.com/products/aic1/AIC1.htm. From hahn its like 1500. But you can peice together your own for way less.

    so with that aic1, would it be possible to add an injector to the factory plastic manifold? im pretty foor at fab work so im pretty sure i could figure something out, but would i need to add just 1 injector, or 4? 1 per cylinder? what do you think about the AEM F/IC 6? would that would out for me?

    I've never used th aem, and I? Going to run 4 60's off the box I linked to on my ttr intake manifold. I wouldn't add any bungs to. Stock plastic manifold because of how thin the runners are and the issue of boost leaks down the line. Any welding shop could wld in extra aluminum bungs if you had the intake manifold and bungs for the injectors. Just pic up another stock fuel rail and reill and tap the ends for fittings to connect it in series with the stock manifold. For a visual on how it would look like checout this link. http://www.j-body.org/forums/read.ph...9&t=181583&p=1

    im not really planning on running crazy psi, only 10, maybe 15 psi. i know how i can bond plastics and stuff. as well as aluminum welding. i have been running it through my mind to get some flanges and runners and make my own intake manifold. but im really considering the aem unit. it intercepts the signal from the ecu to the injectors and modifies the pulse width. also has an onboard boost pressure sensor im really considering it because it seems like the cheapest way to make my set up work. do you think maybe i should just try getting it tuned by hptuners/tunercatz/efi live. maybe some company that supports a cobalt/jbody? would it maybe work?

    there never is an easy or cheap route.
    my advice do it right the first time, and you wont have to spend more money and time on it in the future
