hey everyone i own a AU i6, which i currently fitted a ba exhaust manifold with a gt 35-40r, running 7 psi with factory computer, injectors.
I have yet to find any tuning problems aside from on 9 psi i got injector cut out, also the car didnt run lean surprisingly. So therefore it has been a cheap turbo conversion with considerable power difference, any questions please feel free to pm me.

only running the stock reg?

if u are than it would be running dangerously lean. u might want to get a afr meter.

i would have also thought it would be pinging, but the au knock control is better than eseries.
