    Well unless your "Buddy" builds cars.. i would be careful about advice I take.. If it runs lean, that doesnt mean add better fuel, it means whatever is controlling the fuel, isn't delivering enough. This is where tuning Kicks in.. you wont really be tuning since your using SFMU.. 91 octane is designed for cars that are higher end/ performance. Thats what you need to stick with.

    "An in the end no to setups are like"
    but most principals are the exact same..

    Yup looks like internal, ###### set for 8psi.

    Wait its a water cooled turbo? Were are u getting your oil feed for your turbo? Where you getting the water from? Not saying it can't be done but, so for it sound like your burning money. An you may ruin a good turbo. You lost me at big nasty.

    Water cooling that turbo is pointless. its not BB..

    Did you just pick parts to buy for fun? im just trying to figure out how and where you got these ideas of what to buy..

    As for big nasty.. bigger isnt always better. it will probably do exactly nothing for you at your boost level..
