I didn't see anything about a manifold or a way to tune. You're also going to need a wideband

You mean the dorman manifold I listed? And I have a buddy that works at a local performance shop that is gonna assist on the tuning etc.. I will let you know which system he uses prior to be going etc... The gauges are all wideband.

Just talked to my buddy and he said it would benifit me to get a megasquirt system and we can tune it from that. I looked it up and read up on it, and realized there was a reason i never made it to nasa and hated math. That stuff is deep and that is something i dont want to mess up. He is gonna set it up for me once I get one and program etc and tell me how to do it. And i have to pay him to do it, but he has alot of experiance in it, he has used it on alot of cars etc... I guess that was what you where asking me about with the tuning.

There are wideband and narrowband A/F gauges. MS is great if you're ready to go that in depth. A cheaper and more beginner friendly option is an AEM FIC, but it doesn't do nearly as much as MS
