Call TSA, they have done a few setups of turbos on AU's. They even did the mega setup on HOTDBZ's car.

HOTDBZ has a turbo on his AUI XR6 he would be the best to speak to, he had his done at TSA in melbourne.

Re: Turbo on an au

You can run std injectors but realy you are runing the risk of detonation and burning the crap out of your pistons etc.You need "atleast" 30 Lp / 300 cc injectors...The XR6t have 36 Lp ....You need some sort of engine management first so these injectors can be tuned...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
