lol i realized after i put the car down on the ground that i didnt even take pics of the install .... my install is quite ghetto with the oil return, so until that issue is solved no photos

turbo.jpg

turbo2.jpg

turbo3.jpg

i took it out in the rain last night and wow what a difference.... i can spin first second and third but thats without lsd and i have 195's dry weather is fun as well, took some on/off ramps on the way back from co-op pretty quick and the acceleration is far better now, then with my old turbo

one issue i am having is fuel cutout at about 5500rpm, my a/f ratio drops to about 11.x to 1 while boosting at about 8 ish psi but when i hit 5500 it spikes to like 15 ish to 1
im hoping a tune and larger injectors as well as a 3.5 bar fuel pressure regulator will fix my problems
i am hoping a tune and larger injectors will fix this issue

If you're only around 8psi I doubt that you're maxing out the 42lb injectors. I haven't been following this build religiously... have you upgraded your fuel pump at all?

I'm running 42lb injectors on my turbo 327i off of the stock fuel pump with one of the ebay t04e turbos, which I know is smaller, but I'm running it up to 12-13psi without any fuelling issues.

Oh, well carry on then lol.

42lb injectors will definitely fix that problem, the guy I bought the car from put in 24lb injectors and at 8psi they were pretty much pegged wide open trying to get enough fuel in
