Question fuel regulator

anyone has it?
do you think i need it to make my car smoother since i have 16 psi and unichip stage 1 because i feel sometimes the car won't get enough fuel when i hammer it
i have A/F ratio (i know it's not accurate) and it shows that i'm running LEAN when i hammer the car

thanks

Is this on an aftermarket turbo setup? Can you give a little more details?

Most likely you do need more fuel. There's the right way to do it, and half arse way.

The right way would be get a larger fuel pump and then get a fuel regulator that will bypass enough fuel at idle to maintain the proper fuel pressure at idle.

Other way to do it would be to get a rising rate fuel pressure regulator. They come in different varieties, 2:1, 4:1, etc.

Depending on the setup, fuel pump, etc. a combo of both suggestions may be the best way to go.

You may want to try the factory forced induction forums. no stock turbo's here.

Yeah.....the factory forced induction forums may be of more help.

What I said though...pretty much holds true......get a bigger fuel pump. It can make quite a difference.

not really sure, there are different ones out there in different price ranges. Ask in the fact. forced induction forum and see who is running an upgraded pump, what it can flow, and how much it costs.
