This is a stream of consciousness, but with somebody who can't use words effectively.

what fuel octane will you run ? and perhaps a slightly richer air fuel ratio and dont go ballistic with timing
fit an egt
and when it hits a threshold back off

I do not see TSE Inconel studs on that list. They are required.

Do not get the FM 2.0

550 injectors are way, way too small.

Enjoy reading this very long thread about stud stretching. The TSE studs are the only Inconel studs that have verified track testing on them with drivers who stretch regular studs.

I am at about 85% IDC on a 1.6 and 16psi with a 15g turbo. I think you will need larger injectors for that boost level given a 2L. My afr's are around 10.8:1 and that's as lean as I want to go.

Oh well, since it comes with it, that's ok. Nothing is wrong with the 2.0, except for the price. It's a hugely expensive motor that won't do much more than much, much cheaper 1.9 BP.

I'm having a very hard time seeing a 550cc injector provide enough fuel for 2560 @18psi on a 2.0

550 cc injectors will tell you you have enough fuel until you run out and send pistons across the sky.

there's no reason a 2.0L turbo motor would ever use something that small when there are some great options for injectors out there.

because more reliability.
