Well I know one thing is for sure. I wont have any trouble turning my 35's over anymore. I was getting 8-10...... assuming I don't kick the pump into "OVERDRIVE" I would say 6-8 depending on how effienct my turbos make it. It could possible help out. I went with the high impedance injectors to help with tuning.

I'd like to get my dyno run on factory tires, instead of these 70lb MTRs(without the rim and air lol)

Mileage should go up. -8an should be big enough. I would run a split feed and have the regulator on the back side of the system. Dont forget to use a boost referencing regulator. Will make it alot easier on the injector an help keep PWM down.
