Makes full boost at about 3,200 rpm. Good for a big flowing turbo.

Got it mapped but fuel pump crapped out on me, so was running lean at top end and left it there. I put in a new pump, road tested it. AFR's all good.

I had it on track a few times last year in mondello and Anglesey. It had a few teething issues as you do, but its track reliable now. Everything was easily solved even when initially it didn't appear that way.

e.g. In mondello I noticed the water temp way past the middle. I quickly switched off the engine and coasted onto the grass. Waited for it to cool down. Tried to restart and it was misfiring. I was sure I had lifted the head.

turned out the map line fell off when I hit the rough grass! Reconnected and drove home! :)

Also had a oil leak which looked like the sump gasket or where I tapped the sump. That turned out to be a missing bold on oil pump into the bottom end. Replaced and sealed up. :)

Overheating problem was caused by the intercooler being repositioned and blocking too much air to rad.
