However, it's fairly easy to run 14-15psi on bandaids... here's how:
GT2554 or smaller, 14psi, 93octane, intercooled, MBC
Bipes: set base timing to 14*, pull 5*-8* total starting at 3500rpms.
o2clamp: use Olderguys stock setting as shipped.
Walbro 190lph + Begi 2025 + Fuel pressure gauge: set base fuel as stated in Begi instructions, tune for 90-100psi of fuel pressure at full boost depending on injectors.
The above setup is proven and reliable... probably want to replace all your rubber fuel-lines before running that much pressure, and your fuel filter.
Depending on 1.6 or 1.8, and exhaust size, you're good for 200-220whp on a Dynojet. Get on a dyno for 1/2 hour or buy an LC1... drive until you can afford better.
The only problem with bandaids (Bipes and o2clamp) is that they require you to hack the factory wiring harness.
The more I read, the more I start to realize that I have a lot more to learn!! I am truly about to back down and just build my engine the way I know how (just over size and NA), then read for about another year before I boost and attempt to run with the "big dogs"
I am really glad I joined this forum.
