Keeping the bottom NA? Make sure you have .8mm gap plugs, makes a big difference...

Also, make sure that the banjo bolt washers are new, or seal properly, as they can leak easy if not done properly

i have done a few,always do the gasket on a n/a conversion cos its common they blow out within days,using the turbo cam will make it a bit doughy down low compared to the na cam but will make it go alot better and also lessen chance of detenation, get a turbo fuel pump, some people say there the same there not!apparently the replacement pumps suit both but everyone i spoke to said they have different part numbers (bosch)
