    then thursday i went to fit the new bosch 550cc injectors into my fuel rail and they were shorter than the standard ones



    so a drive up to badger 5 and bill sorted me some unspacers









    ready to bed in rings



    well took my car to the dyno day at garage streamline and was happy with the results(thanks eddie). needs more mapping and boost to be turned up to 1.5 bar or maybe more running on asda fuel lol

    here is a video at 10 psi
    mk1 1.8t k04 hybrid 10 psi run garage streamline - YouTube

    and pitcures and dyno plot with 0.7 bar and 1.2 bar. i need a electronic boost controller as the mbc boost drops
