Ultraguage is nice...but my torque app does everything it does and more and it cost about $15.
$5 for the app and like $10 for the bluetooth reader adapter.

I don't want to have to use my phone as a display so that's why I went with the ultraguage.

Dude you for sure need to hit up summerset next year. It's in Sommerset Wi which is litterely across the river and like 15 minutes away... As for a turbo you can get as fancy as you want. I saw a video of a honda civic or like wise car rocking twin 80mm turbos pushing 100 shot of NOS out of a 2.0l... Of course at that point the turbos are bigger than the actual engine and you're going to be blowing rods and bearings and pistons every couple thousand miles even with diamond cut high end racing pistons with machined connecting rods and upgraded springs you're still FUCKED... If you want to turbo it and get good results without having to change out internals left and right you should only be running like 5 pounds of boost with that beast. Out of a 40mm turbo you should be fine but you're looking at like 2-4 grand just for 5 pounds of boost and a shitty ebay turbo so probably not worth it.

I still think it's funny when guys put stroker kits on 3.slows. Yes I know that a 3.slow stroked will beat a 5.0 stock any day but that's just not the matter. A 5.0 with something as simple as rocker rollers and dual throttle body would smoke a stroked out 3.slow and you'll spend like a third the money... Sorry that's my little rant I hate 3.slows stroked out THEY'RE NOT PERFORMANCE ENGINES!!!!

I'll be sure to check out Somerset but as far as Turbo, it's a childish dream. A 5.0 sounds better!

After I get my 5.0 in, I'm going to get dual exhaust out the back. Don't know what muffler yet, gonna look at some vids of different ones on explorers. Also a CAI. Then after I get everything else done that I want to do to my interior, exterior, etc. Engine upgrades might happen.

True duel exhaust no cats no mufflers cut off before the rear wheels. Maximum performance when matched with some like jba headers. Very low back pressure

Hell no. I hate when people do that. Only a diesel should have no cats and no mufflers.

Then you're never going to achieve maximum performance. Cats a real joke and mufflers are even worse.

If the engine is modified its fine and understandable, but not when the engine doesnt have a significant increase of horse power and torque over stock
