Just ran some logs, was shocked, stage 1 + intake, 30-90MPH 8.18 seconds in 3rd.



May have an issue though, I only ran that to 6000 RPM, injector duty cycle is hitting 98%.

Which reminds me, good thing I have a wideband, though it's not yet hooked up, it will be with the exhaust when the hangers come. When that happens, Stage 2 and a free flowing exhaust and a little extra boost and the injectors are gonna peg out, I'm guessing 108+% and I will be lean. Any ideas short of new injectors, pump, reg, the lot? Not yet looking to go that route, Stage 2 ain't cheap if ya follow. Just something to keep in mind for others. I assume this isn't common since I have heard stage 2 is fine on stock injectors, but it is at max, which to me means 80-90%, 98-108% just will not do....

You can hardwire the fuel pump, that normally brings IDC down a bit.

But why not just add a walbro 255? Its simple to install and you won't be maxing that out for a while.

So what you are saying is that I am likely maxing the fuel pump and not the injectors?

Well, new details. Top Gear Africa special take 2 feat. Bugeye wagon will be a first ever 2 part episode. Pt. 1 airs next Sunday and Pt. 2 the week after. They seem right proud of it as well, and are adamant that they rewrite history. New source of the Nile perhaps?

Most likely.

The VF52 is quite a turbo (for stock) and the OEM fuel pumps are garbage.

That still begs the question though, why not just opt for a wb255? That was one of the first mods I did, even with the dinky little td04 I had at that time.

No tune required for this right? Replace with higher flow regulator as well?
