      I am looking for guidance and recommendations for a tune to be purchased immediately after my build.(United Motorsports seems to be the goto) Particulars are as follows:

      2004 R32

      HGP R 30 turbo(unsure of the actual size;its their entry level turbo)Has internal diverter valve
      HGP exhaust manifold
      8.5.1 compression pistons
      3" Catless exhaust
      CTS turbo Short runner intake
      SAI delete
      CTS Crank and powerpulley kit
      Front Mount intercooler
      CTS intercooler piping kit
      APEXi AVC-R Boost controller
      DeatschWerks DW65v AWD High-Flow Fuel Pump
      Stage 3 Daily SouthBend clutch and flywheel kit

      Questions:
      1.) I still need to purchase injectors and am a bit unsure of what size should be considered and what boost level correlates to that size.
      2.)Spark plug type?
      3.)What is the approximate HP I can safely look forward to with the build particulars listed above?^

      Any thoughts to help put the remaining list together before I reach out to UMS is greatly appreciated.

      I’m running UM’s 630cc injectors for their 630 tune, no complaints. If you end up going the 630 route I’d probably buy them from CTS because they have to be machined for the R32 Head. You’ll need injector adapters aswell. But if you wanted to spend some more dough then go with the 870 ProMAF set up UM offers. You’ll need 870cc injectors and then the promaf. But with your set up and depending on how much boost you run, with the 630 set up 500 is possible for sure.

      I can’t thank you enough. This is gold. I hadn’t considered the ProMaf set up for no particular reason, but thank you for the great advice!


      BTW your .:R is gorgeous. I tried to do some creative zooming on your stablemate behind you, but no luck. What a garage!!

      Ha! Checking out your Instagram and it looks like we both took our .:R's to the overboost cafe. LOL. I had 204k on the clock when I decided it needed a turbo. Build took all winter 2018, and it lasted maybe a month on all stock internals no HSGasket. I guess I was looking for the easy way to buy Pistons/ARP bolts etc.
      BTW it sounded brutal on your gram vids
