Walbro 255 will do the trick or if the old ones not tired try a Bosch 044 inline with a surge tank and a 6:1 rising rate reg with the 42 lb injectors is a good set up

Try punctuation. It helps to understand what you are writting.

Better to use an aftermarket ECU or SCT chip and get it tuned. But if you don't want to go that way, use a 12:1 FMU and decent injectors.

Is anything done to the motor? If not why decompress, many are running on stock motor with 12psi (Troyman) with a good tune.

But we all know if you want a good set up better to spend the money on making sure u can get the right amount of fuel before a tune, only for them to tell ya its runnin lean which at 12 psi they will

STD EEC won't run 42"s with or without rising rate reg..
12 to 1 is just pushing injector static anyway..
Plus it puts way too much load on fuel pump to deliver the volume of fuel under pressure..
Either us J3 port tune http://www.tiperformance.com.au/index.php
or fit whatever ECU your tuner recomends..
In NSW EMS is popular and works well for around $1200 ...
42Lb injectors will get you up there 250 to 270 RWKW..
Unless you semi skilled you could try
http://www.diyautotune.com/catalog/mega ... -c-76.html
Plenty of forums to help you through it..

But wat should I set it to I have purchased ba turbo injectors for it and will be going with the walbro 255 pump intake the only thing stopping me from turbocharging all I need to do is the intercooler,fuel reg and computer and pump but pumps easy
