I have been researching for about 2 weeks now so I have read Plenty of forums. After alot of looking around I have decided to do the Hybrid build. I think. I dont have much money to work with and I want to get it done by winter and last me. What I think I need is ej257 short block, water pump, oil pump, and gaskets. I have been trying to figure out what gaskets to get and have found no real answer. I am hoping to come out with a price under $2600. I will be running all stock for now. Can I run it without a tune until I have the money to do so?
Personally just buy new injectors and forget modding them. Well as brfatal said depends on the shop and the method of tune, i.e. Cobb, OS, Hydra, ect. I'm sure I could dig up a map base map for a OS tune that would get you to a tuner.
