I made 209whp and 230ft/lbs tqs on brown tops/lh2.2 on a B21F+T. You have to turn the adjuster screw a lot to lean it out enough but it can be done.

Update: during may timing belt job, I think I found the issue... turbo was blown. I took of the intake pipe and wiggled the thing and instantly I knew. Blades of the compressor and turbine had hit the walls and begun bending on the ends. Due to the very obvious wheel and core damage to the turbo, I decided to swap on a new eBay turbo vs rebuilding. Found a “57 trim” (calculated to be more like a 47 trim) on my local classifieds site and ended up picking it up for $50 Cad. As you know the eBay turbos have an odd exhaust flange so I managed to swap the hot side to that of my old turbo (with an exhaust flange I could use). It took a little bit of dremel work to make it clear but it eventually worked without any binding (even while pushing to the sides and turning). I mounted it up yesterday and things already seem MUCH better. I can now build 5psi + in neutral where as I was barely able to break 0 with the old turbo. Haven’t had the chance to drive it yet but I’m excited.
