Here's the tip
1 cooler
2 dyno tune

If it still doesn't run right after that and the dyno guy can't figure it out, well who knows what is going on there.

it is flared on the end but ends about half the length of that water return line

will i be fine running water piping under the turbo (right along the block) onto the water feed?

or will there be too much heat under there and will distroy the piping?

what kind of hose are you using? heater hose is normally pretty durable

using 5/16 heater hose piping
might have to get some alloy/fiber heat shield bagging to cover it aswell

it come to about a inch away from the dump pipe at the closet point

If your going to get a vlt fuel reg u may aswell get a malpassi adjustable fuel reg. theres a couple for sale atm. but ive heard there is a difference with flow between a stock and vlt. do it once, do it right

brand new the malpassi ones are about 180 but second hand you can get them for 100 or less. i picked one up for $60

and the vlt ones can go for around $30

but the malpassi silver top are adjustable so there the best bet for under 15 or the black one for over 15 psi.

silver one would be the go

hey the reg does it just use same hoses as current stock reg?
do u need any hoses and what difference would it make to the car?

ive read earlier that malpassi fuel reg wont make much difference to the car and it runs rich or lean and stuffs the idle?
do u think its just better to go for stock vlt fuel reg? i have a stock turbo setup running 8 + 14psi

yeah you wud have to get it dynoed to get it adjusted properly so it doesnt lean out. but if thats the case and ur just running stock vlt gear go vlt fuel reg.

Im planning to do more mods and have a hi flow turbo so need a better fuel reg. pretty much they increase pressure out of the injectors

just out of curiousity what set up are u running? like injectors, cooler etc

if hes just staying at low boost there wud be no need to upgrade it really, save him incase the pressure is set to high or to low. which plenum are u using? i dont think the n/a fuel reg will fit onto a vlt plenum.. malpassi one is recommended but if you just want a nice basic setup stick with the essentials

if u needa n/a one ive got one but ive never tested the difference between the two. ive also got a malpassi on the way so il be taking my vlt one off hopefully 2moro if u need it.

I've used 8-9psi on High Comp on the N/A fuel reg for over a year, No need for a vlt fuel reg. What psi are u going to run? Malpassi wouldn't be needed on a stock turbo setup, when u start changing Injectors/fuel pumps and aftermarket ecu would be best to check it out then

maybe a malpassi rising rate fuel pressure regulator will help. I have a malpassi and a bosch 044 pump on my high comp vlt running 15psi and it doesnt ping at all.

Did you read the replies? NA and Turbo regs are the same. NA reg will be sweet, been proven a whole bunch of times
