Hi all,

I have a cheapie reg I got on ebay but it's only a 1.1:1 ratio.

I just found this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=221065279865&ssPageName=ADME:B:WNAFP:AU:1123

Which is 1.9:1 ratio and claims to be good for up to 18 pounds of boost.

My question is.. would it be suitable for a charged or boosted falcon? I can't see any reason why not but figured I would ask on here as their seem to be loads of experienced folks with boosting here.

ta

Frank

If your are talking about your M90 when you are talking boosted, go with an AU Fuel Rail, B series XR6 Turbo Fuel reg, 255L Fuel Pump, 42lb Injectors, and an SCT Eliminator Chip.

Coolies.. and what would I be looking at to take that off your hands?

The fuel side of things is the last thing I have to sort out. I have the 255lt pump which turns out to be fine..

For the ECU tune, I was going to see Jason and get a TI chip and flasher and work on the factory Ghia tune as I want to keep my Speed sensitive steering and possibly swap between a LPG and premium tune.. I am a programmer/sysadmin in my day job anyway so I am sure I can work it out with Jasons help and lots of reading.

I have a cheapie reg I am gonna pull the guage off and ditch.. so if the price is with my means I will take it off your hands.

I'll take the reg and rail.. do you have a paypal addr?

As for the injectors, are 80 pound injectors overkill for 10psi?

I have read your whole thread but I don't remember why you stopped using those injectors?

Are you going to get Dyno Tuned?

80lber's are way overkill for your setup unless you plan on upgrading later on. 42lber's are more than enough.

i was running them in my au on 7 psi, more than enough, slight overkill but you would never have to upgrade them again if you were after more power later..

i removed them from the car brcause it was defected and i sold all the turbo stuff seperatly...

ill pm you about other thing..
