Well finally have a chance to do some of my own shit.8 hour on the dyno and have got the fuel sorted . Now the turbo size to sort out. Climes to 260hp by 3.5 4000 rpm then flattens out and that's on 10 psi so all look good?

Thats not bad at all for 3500-4000 rpm- You might have to be doing a bit of short shifting Graeme!
Seriously though once you get the turbo size sorted it should be a rocket.
Can't wait to see the old girl back on the track.

Another 8 hours on the dyno and 60 liters of fuel 4 degrease of advance and a electronic bust controller to control the spiking. We can now go looking for horsepower.
