    Based on past experiences with hybrids you should fit a 0.8bar actuator and ideally have the wastegate ported to prevent boost creep which seems inherent on these turbos...

    There is no need to fit it right now as this will give you more boost which you currently don't need and you can leave it until you have the rest of the hardware in place and are ready for mapping...

    Well as for my hybrid build iv bought a few bits.

    as well as that iv been to Rs tuning Friday and had a chat with Paul
    very helpfull had it smoke tested and straight away **** loads of smoke came out of the intake pipe at the bottom where the reducer meets the turbo apart from that no other leaks he did try it again after and there was only a bit of smoke don't get it.

    Next he put it on the dyno and wow did I craped my pants when it got going but then the trouble started one side of the car was pulling to one side wich he said don't think one of ya brakes are working So straped her down then the surge started and Paul said cannot push her anymore it's not safe so packed up and had a look at the map I had on it.
    well what a pile of **** loads of boost no added fuel and or timming 13.5 lambda and lots of other **** and he said no wonder it's surging like that.

    Paul advised me to put it on a standered map till I get it mapped in a few week standered is bab but safe full boost holds at 12 psi runs nice as well 210 bhp wooooo.

    Parts now bought

    Liquid gauge £150 what a peace of kit well werth it.
    Agu largeport head £70 sending for rebuild soon as.
    Genises 550cc injectors off lee on the forum cheers pal and bill.

    xs manifold
    gaskets bolts
    0.8 bar acuater
    oil pick up
    water pump
    timming belt kit
