I'm not using a stock turbo. I've got a Holset that uses a weird flange and cast iron outlet adapter that I cut and welded to. Believe me, the initial few tacks gave me all kinds of trouble with cracking, but that's another story.

And I saw your post about adjustable regulators- that's what gave me the idea! I'll have to thank you for that. Unfortunately no one around here has any CFI units, and the ones online are going for $200+. Shame since I could use the larger injectors in them as well. But I took the same idea as that and just modified my own stock regulator. It wasn't too hard really and I was pretty pleased with the result.

Picture as promised.

Home brew adjustable fuel pressure regulator
   

Home made adjustable wastegate actuator
   

And an overall view of the janky turbo setup. Note the aforementioned VAM bracket from a chopped NA air cleaner bracket.
