its pretty low. Kaplhenke everything on the car. The driveshaft was hitting the seatbelt bolts. I bought shorter bolts, problem solved.

4 bar FPR from the old dodge turbos
No. 1/4 inch return is bad for high volume. I use a stock Volvo regulator, it has a 5/16 return, to make 367whp.

If you're worried about cooking your turbo how about water injection in front of the turbo inlet? You're lucky to have E85 so injecting before the throttle body is probably unnecessary.
I know water (/meth) injection is considered a band aid here, but it has it's good points & if you're building up an engine from scratch you can build it to take advantage of them.

Possibly. I haven't fired up the tuning laptop in a year and a hlf or so (lol, on jackstands getting LS'ed).

I'll try to remember to power it up and look tonight.
