Very helpful. Anyway, I'm satisfied that I can make it work, now just worried about these side clamps.

As for the injectors, the tuner says I should be fine. I'm not gonna be going too aggressive, as I have to drive 45 mins for good fuel...
Maybe I can have a soft tune on my PC for if I have to get 95oct...

Okay, a little off topic, but have any of you guys had any experience with the AEM wideband / boost failsafe?
I've been told by somebody that you can't log on romraider with them, that doesn't sound right to me...
If that's true, I'll gladly pay somebody to find a fix for this, as I've already ordered my failsafe...

Yes. I use the factory settings for mine.
No offense, but when it comes to tuning there is no stupid questions.

Lol, therefore I can only assume that because you said "no offence", you meant "no stupid questions, just stupid people."

Hahaha, just kidding. Okay, thanks heaps, that's made my morning. My order will be shipped out on Monday, will prob start build in the next two weeks, looking forward to it. Cheers.

But sounds awesome for a street car

The VF52 statement is a joke between a few of us on here.....I don't care what dyno numbers it can produce anyway. I'm a just enjoy it kind of guys.

As I've said many times elsewhere, only on preposterously high reading dynos or lots of manipulation. This is a perfect example of the joke that some tuners try to pull of. It's just not realistic. On E85 you're your average dyno may hit 350-360. On 93 290-310.
