I didn`t know what to expect Buster. Although i thought it would take more than 1.2

Just an idea.

But I just read that you was thinking about getting the turbot done, so 1.2 should give you a pleasant amount of power

Hmm didn`t think of that. Loads more cost involved with new pump & bigger injectors. Maybe if i get it just keep it for a rainy day or untill i REALLY wanna go faster.

With my setup at .9 bar the Power FC was showing 95-100% duty cycle on the injectors all the time.

Fuelling is at the Max on the std setup it would seem.

Also,

I have read in several places that boost pressure of more than 1 bar will kill the top end. Hence the need to fit a thicker metal head gasket. it will allow more boost pressure but will compromise the drivability of the car slightly.

Bit harsh calling me a Spaz. i much prefer **** you know. Ask a man a question and he dont even have the decency to call you a ****.

Stick a metal one in ther mush, but more lag though.

Got an HKS 1.2mm metal head gasket for £185 for my Celica (4cyl though).
