everything is all sorted now and the car runs excellent for standard comp and injectors. doesnt ping/detonate. i set the boost to 5psi and retarded the timing about 6 degrees.
the problem was the fuel pump. i didnt cut the cradle and it was blocking the filter and no fuel was getting threw. however i still didnt cut the cradle cos if you cut the cradle when you have about quater of petrol the car will surge and the cradle stops that from happening. so i modified the fuel pump bracket and few things and its goes good.
thanks for all your help boys
cheers rob
