We success modified the injection pump for the AAI intercooler kits.
But we read 1.6 bar of boost at the full throttle. The vehicle now
has the enormous power, but I fear that the 1.6 bar is too much boost.
I believes that the boost should only be the 1.2 bar max, given that
I drive caution, tow little, and will install the exhaust pyrometer.
We did not modify the wastegate. What do you the guys think?

Hey Benoit
You are not alone but some of us mechanically challanged people must stay
silent in case we reply and make an ass of ourselves.
I know what its like to want an answer and not get one but im sure the guys
who know will answer you as they always do when they have a chance.
Well mainly me, I think I know things but then im not so sure I know them
,then im sure I know something but not sure what I know is right if you know
what I mean.
When My fuel pump was fixed, well fixed better than it was but not fixed
correctly as I still experience some really bad vibrations from the engine
every day, like the engine will just jump out of the engine bay.
But anyway the fuel pump guy messed with my pump in more ways then one but
when he turned up the fuel and asked me to drive it ,it was very quick and
responsive with a lot of get up and go.
But he did tune it back down as he said the engine will burn out much faster
because of the extra fuel and the damage this would do to all sorts of
parts in the engine.
So hopefully this advice will help you in some way.
cheers

Benoit,
1.1 or 1.2 is a safe bet if you don't want to ruin anything. The
LCOOL website has a few threads on this topic.

Morning Benoit,
Sorry to have not responded earlier.
The AAI kit recommends not going over 0.8bar with the factory turbo, other kits I have seen take it up to 1 bar. If you are getting more than this without modification I would be concerned that your wastegate actuator isn't working.
You can run at that pressure, but you won't be doing the turbo much good - I would get it checked out.
Regards
Julian

Oh thank you the guys,
I was more worried if Elco is broken then about help my answer. So
now both problems are gone!
