Alright. The car fired up right away with the best idle i could get!

I m very happy with the result except of the fact that the turbo starts spooling at 3.000 rpm. I hope this is a wastegate fine tuning problem, because it is a monster!
We tuned it for minimum boost but she made 10-13 psi at full boost. I would be happy if i could maximize my boost to 8 psi because i m running right now stock 240cc injectors. In first and 2nd gear the the duty cycle reaches 100% .And this is bad..
Beside these, the car feels great. I ve never had a turbocharged vehicle in my life so I m very happy with it and cant stop burning fuel!

Here are the final pictures. Unfortunetely I didn't have time to install the bov so i have some idling problems when i let of the throttle. It runs way to rich to 9:1 and then some times dies.

Hello!
My idling problem disapeared completely.
The solution was found when i put an extended pipe between the maf and the inlet of the turbo. So maf needs to be away from the turbo for sure...
Everything seems to run fine.I will post some videos soon.

Thanks for watching!

nice build man. Don't you think you should just get good engine management instead of running that monstrous setup of 8 injectors and a primitive unit like emb?

If it has been mentioned/discussed I apologize: didn't read whole thread.

You are definetely right man, emb sucks but it gets the job done with pretty solid afrs and it's fairly easy to be tuned from a newbie like me. Before the extra injectors installation I hated this unit so much but now I m quiet happy with it.

Fixed. His is a real Garrett.

If it works well, that's good. The hydraulic hose shop must love you.

Good job.
