Well the car is back up and running. My dad has put a couple hundred miles on the rebuild so far. Going back home at the end of sept to do some tuning on the car and bring back to MD. Just have to figure out why it's not making boost. I'm sure it's something simple my dad over looked.

Tune or no tune would not make a difference in boost amounts because the ECU is not controlling the boost levels.

Verify the wastegate is functional and closing properly along with properly functioning vac lines and it should create boost as long as the wastegate is set properly along with whatever boost control system may be in use.

The car was already tuned. Just need to figure out why it's not making boost and do some fine tuning on the tune. Kinda hard to do since I'm military and the car is in Ohio. So I go home on leave when I can and do what I can.

it would if it wasn't calibrated for the new fuel injectors
