Default Am I maxing out my injectors?

I just recently installed an intercooler... specs in sig.

I've got 1.8l tan tops, a walbro 190, and a vortech with only a 12:1 disc for 8psi.
Do you think I'm maxing out my injectors? Should I up the boost?

you are on the margin. dont add boost until you get ems, bigger injectors, and wideband

those injectors have done 240+whp on a BEGI FMU, probably with that disc you're gonna be way rich in boost, but you still need a wideband

You can get away with 8psi on the stock pump, if its healthy.

im not touching my boost til i get a wideband. Dont want to risk lean readings, but a walbro 190, 12:1, 1.8 injectors is alot of fuel

Petition to ban users who ask about fuel mods without a wideband installed.

lol... i know i need a wideband.

12:1 is probably really rich... rich is safer than lean, right?
It drives fine. haha...

Anyone think i'm maxing my injectors with the 12:1? Bad for them?

I was thinking about the same exact fuel setup as a future upgrade to my BEGI Shanghai kit. Someone mentioned it will support 240rwhp. That's pretty crazy. What fuel pressure would we have to run?
