f150 turbo electronic managment

i am thinking of going turbo in a 2002 f150 5.4 2v PI auto.
i have installed a turbo kit before for a friend but only the hard ware, aka the turbo, piping and oil feed, but thats it.
the part i am wary bout is fuel managment. I want to know of is there a controller i can by to up my fuel in relation to boost and i know i need a tune for boost plus injectors but i need a managament system, any thoughts sugestions

Re: f150 turbo electronic managment

I believe all that needs to be done is to find a local dyno shop, and get the vehicle professionally tuned. A custom tune will put the A/F ratio right where it's suppose to be throughout the power band. The only thing you may want to do is upgrade the injectors to 25lb/hr units just to be safe so there's no fuel starvation when you put the accelerator down. I believe the 5.4 came with 19-21lb/hr injectors at the factory.
