im just starting (slowly) on a turbo build on the el xr6,gonna re build an engine and all that stuff,my question is...
some of you guys say you can use a chiptorque or similar chip effectively with a low boost turbo application.
as i already have a chiptorque chip im wondering how effective it is,like whats low boost??i think i wanna run about 8-9psi would that work with the chip and rising rate reg and bigger injectors??also what size injectors would i need for 9psi of boost?


cheers guys

A few blokes are using the capa switch eliminator chip which works ok.

For 9 psi minimum would be 24lbs, but 30 or even better 36 should see it thru.

From what I heard and read Chiptorque handles around 5 to 6psi, thats all, Eliminator switch or the Sniper might be the way to go, if finances allow, then you have better ones available..
