Looks great! What injectors are you using? I am in the market for new ones myself but would like to get something better then the stock ones.

Alex, time is running fast and I can't wait anymore to see your beast on the road. I Konw Alex and was on his first turbo swift... it was breathtaking. We had a casual drag verse a honda S2000. The driver was astonished, For sure he didn't believe the easy way we were far away in a blink. I can't imagine what Alex will extract from his top hat. As he usually say: "stay tuned".

Oh how I hate those 2 stock bolts that holds the fuel rail into place. :puke: :lol:
Also the stock ones for the dizzy are long gone on my engines.

I just used normal 12mm ones.

difference between 5th gear GTI (31 x 27 under) , 1.3 GS ( 33 x 25 above).

with Gs gears i increase max speed and decrease rpm, right choice for long run and better fuel economy.

here calculation gears Link:

Sorry for the late reply... It's still N/A for now, I want to make it roadlegal and get it approved first.

What RPM will it run @ 120km/h with the new GS gears and what did they cost you? With the original gears it does like 4000RPM @ 120km/h :o
