You'll have to run an aftermarket fuel pump like a walbro, you could try a T5 pump but I cannot confirm if it's better or will even work.

Interesting as I'm halfway down the same road.

I've had mine remapped, egr delete and dpf delete.

I would have hoped for around 210~220 bhp with a hybrid, where did you get the turbo from? And did you change it your self?

Hi Tomo..That鈥檚 what my mapper was expecting?..around 220-230BHP! but the fuel pump is maxing out over 4000RPM!.. I got the turbo from AET Turbos in Normanton near Wakefield..phone number 01924 894171..the part number is GTA1756V..cost..拢594..not cheap..lol..My friend installed it along with the massive skyline intercooler which only needed a small amount of metal removing behind the bumper to allow it to fit then he made all the custom pipe work to go with it.You will also need an uprarted MAP sensor to allow extra boost..you can get that from NB Styling phone number 01747 445097..ask for a Fiesta/Focus 1.6TDCI uprated 3.1 bar map sensor...cost..拢46.50..its a direct fit..I鈥檓 in the process of talking with a lad who works for Dervtech in Manchester..He remembers tuning this engine back in the day and recalls that there is a bigger fuel pump I can fit along with injectors from a big engined Isuzu?..He鈥檚 yet to get back to me with the info?...To say how common this engine is I鈥檓 finding how little is known regarding tuning it beyond stage 1 maps!?...I鈥檓 determined if nothing else..lol..hope this was some help?...it鈥檚 taken me quite a while to get this far..mine also has a custom made stainless exhaust and K&N filter...

Methanol Kit , does it have a Sensor in it to Regulate the ECU by Informing it of the Ethanol Amount , Oh You stated ( Methanol Kit )

I Thought Ethanol was the In thing , coming down the Pike E30 , E40 , E15 . seems like P1 should be able to handle E15

Sad to say it can't, at least not here in CO - E15 is rated 85 octane here - which is absolutely dumb considering vast majority of NA vehicles alone are tuned 87 Octane out of the factory. Wife always used to put 85 in hers till I corrected the issue and appreciates the full advance of the timing curve now. Her Outback is now less of a legless vet in a wheelchair and more a toddler when we put the pedal down.

I've run up 5 gallons of E85 without popping a CEL. I had to do the E85 conversion kit to get 100% E85, but while functional, it isn't ready yet for smooth operation in winter and some random summertime morning cold start issues.

Running a methonal/water injection kit on a diesel doesn鈥檛 require any modifications to the ECU due to them combusting under their own heat...Petrol engines do need the ECU to know when the methanol is being injected as to advance the timing...I run a 50-50 mix of methanol to water ratio which basically brings pump diesel up to race octane fuel spec..ye can really tell the difference when it鈥檚 switched on...I think the flow rate I鈥檓 running is around 150ml per minute...
