Re: boost

you shouls be good upto 1.2 bar, i run a tdo5 on a turbo 2000(with some other mods) at 1.4, with cut out at 1.5 but honestly can never get it over 1.3, best thing is to get it mapped so you get higher boost at slightly lower revs saves you thrashing your car and giving you more grunt mid range, i have mate who runs a similar set us as well from a wrx wagon and he is very pleased, but this only my opinion others will differ. Looking after your engine anyone can strap a big turbo on woop it up to 2 bar but it won't last long.
