          I just got this car 4 days ago and I'm pretty new to the turbo world...but what kind of fuel pressure are you guys running? My gauge is at about 25psi and I read somewhere that it normally is around 35??? Did I read it wrong? Or is it fine where its at?

                I have had 3 fairly distinct setups so I will list separately. New to old.



                2000 CSVT 48,xxx miles on chassis - 05 Sable 3L 15,xxx
                Hog-ported heads using all SVT intakes and cams. 80mm Lightning MAF, 39# Cobra Injectors, Focus SVT Fuel Pump.
                Custom 3" SS Exhaust with Magnaflow resonator and Magnaflow muffler.
                Hybrid "kit" began as ADC T-28 kit. Upgraded Garrett gt3076r turbo, NPG Upgraded FMIC kit, 'tweaked' to work with ADC pipes.
                No miles on this setup yet.
                No Alky injection.....yet.
                HKS SSQV BOV
                TiAL 38mm Wastegate with 5psi spring.
                Plan to run 7-8psi daily. 10-13psi for fun.
                No dyno #'s but I anticipate to be near Stazi's setup from SZ 07. EST. 310whp, 330tq.
                I will let you know when I drive it with new IC setup. I have high hopes.

                2000 CSVT 42,xxx miles on chassis - 04 Sable 3L 7,xxx
                Ported heads using all SVT intakes and cams. 80mm Lightning MAF, 39# Cobra Injectors, Focus SVT Fuel Pump.
                Custom 3" SS Exhaust with Magnaflow resonator and Magnaflow muffler.
                Hybrid "kit" began as ADC T-28. Upgraded Garrett gt3076r turbo, 'Small' ADC Water-to-Air Intercooler.
                Approx. 6,000 miles on the upgraded turbo before hydrolocking the motor.
                HKS SSQV BOV
                TiAL 38mm Wastegate with 5psi spring.
                Ran 7-8psi daily. A couple 10psi runs. Dropped it down to 5psi after hydrolock.
                Dyno 273hp 282tq @ 8-9psi. TQ fell flat on its face around 3600 rpm.
                Car was STRONG even at 5psi, 7-8psi would roast tires until the small intercooler became a major bottle-neck. It was good pretty much until the secondaries opened up and the motor really needed to breath. Intake air temps were too high for the boost being run and way too high on the 10psi runs. It was madness even with the miniscule ADC water-to-air intercooler. Major storm, no visibility, huge puddle across road, hydrolocked. Never ran smooth after that. Finally died 4 months after incident.

                2000 CSVT 36,xxx miles on chassis, stock 2.5L
                StockMAF, 24# Injectors, Focus SVT Fuel Pump.
                Custom 3" SS Exhaust with Magnaflow muffler.
                ADC T-28 kit. Garrett gt28r turbo, 'Small' ADC Water-to-Air Intercooler.
                Approx. 6,000 miles on this setup before I blew the motor.
                Turbo XS RFL BOV and Turbo XS Type-S BOV
                TiAL 38mm Wastegate with 5psi spring.
                Ran 5-8psi.
                Never dyno'd this setup.
                It was a riot to drive coming from a stock 2.5L with no major power adders. It never really threw you back but it just pulled so strong damn near to redline. I had the most fun with it from 40-80mph. The boost was instant and the speedo just rolled so nicely to the right.

                              Don't remember all the stuff...someone still has it.
                              It did 336 to the wheels on 10lbs, motor built for closer to 20lbs (with the .63 A/R turbine...then switched to the .82, but never was able to get it dyno'd again)
                              The dyno I had it on showed 13:1 ish A/F, so I never went higher.

                              I heard a rumor later that that wideband didn't work correctly.

                              Who knows shouldn't have run lean, had 42lb injectors with a 255high pressure pump...based on that wideband though, I couldn't get it any richer!!!

                              Oh well. It was pretty fast rolling, sucked from a dig.
