I know it's your daily and it's dramatic to have car issues. Chilllll brosephina. Don't just start messing with ****. That's how you got where you are now. It's fine to get your hands dirty but you know how you lost your prized diamond encrusted unicorn pendant and the last place you remember having it was the porta potty? Don't dive in before you check your shirt breh! It was on your popped collar the whole time.

Take a deep breathe. What are we working with here. What year? What turbo and turbo parts are you using? is there an fmu? How many miles? What kind of maintenance records? How old are your plug or plug wires etc... Tell us everything you know about the car.

So you changed injectors without pulling and checking your plugs for wetness? Interesting choice.

Put the 1.6 injecters in. Your stock computer is dialed for the 1.6 injectors and putting bigger injectors
In running on the stock ecu will cause you to run rich.

Hold on a sec. You're complaining of the car running rich and then dumped in bigger injectors?

How about instead of changing parts without thinking, you take a second and reflect upon what's going on here? When did the problem start? What has changed? Find out, and then change that back. If you have - or can get - the parts to do so, the obvious answer is to take the turbo off and put everything back to stock. Nothing good will come from running a turbo on your current setup, and lots of bad likely will.

Or you can prod around a bit more without thinking about WTF you're doing until you blow the engine.

Yea its never good to get someone elses project.
Especially if its fi'd. I would do more research on
Force induction and buy a standalone like ms3
before you ruin that motor.
