running the AFM on the compressor side of turbo will not allow the car to start. I tried this when assembling the turbo ETA that i did.

It would crank but not fire. Took off the charge pipe that went to the TB and we saw raw gas coming up through the pipes.

no good.

Put the AFM back to the stock location, havent had a prob since.

Dont bother moving the AFM, but do as diegom6 did and upgrade the AFM internals.

yes i own it and it tells everything that you need to know, but the book is general and you have to study engines to know exactly what it is saying. not saying you have to study engines, but you have to apply the knowledge to your specific engine(s). but the funny thing is, that it explains how to make real turbo engine, not fake ones. real ones like slowered's 550 hp 318, it even has ray's make believe shop in chicago mentioned in the footnotes.
