My guess is that it will idle, but not well. Put a drip pan under your tailpipe and I bet you could reuse the gas in your lawn mower.

Define "idle".
I could "idle" 550s off my stock 1.6 ECU.

Doesn't mean the car drove worth a ****.

Nester, i think it will idle, but im sure the EMB can't pull enough to make it worthwhile, that a 200% larger injector.

Boost tuning is easy... just turn up the boost until your air fuels are where you want them. Lather rinse repeat.

I tried that but even at the desired boost midrange controll sucks. 17 psi at WOT was interesting though.
