Hi all
i will hopefully soon be a new owner of a 21turbo :D and i am after some advice on the right way to go about getting more power out of her. :twisted:
Fuel economy is not a problem but reliability is, and Im a tight as a ducks arse so the less pennys spent the better!
So far my plan is to up the boost pressure by way of bleed valve/actuator/amal valve 'adjustment'.
then increase the fuelling to match by the way of some volvo injectors.
If i feel a bit flush i may even uprate the intercooler or fit a charge cooler.
If anybody has any advice it would be most appreciated, please tell me if im pissing up the wrong tree!
thanks in advance

Get a stainless exhaust, preferably with 3" width all the way back. Definitely get an alloy replacement or a big front mount intercooler if you wana put the boost over 17-18 psi, tho even if not this will keep charge temps down and help with power. Get a hybrid turbo. Could even see if anyone has a chip for sale. And an FSE valve to up the fuel pressure is also a good purchase.

thanks for that
is it still worth me getting different injectors?
