I want to stay well under the engine and ip's maximum performance potential to preserve it for the long run. I'm acutely aware of the debate between the "mech." and the "elec." camps regarding controls on the pump. You know what I mean I'm sure. My quest for simplicity leads only to this pump, come what may. I have 20 years experience with IDI diesels and crave and admire their tombstone reliability. I've rebuilt 2 IDI pumps completely and successfully, but TDI pumps have higher internal pressures and are trickier to set up. This pump was tuned by Giles. He's worked out mods that are worth every cent. The 12mm head puts out a larger amount in the same window as a smaller head so in theory I need boost as early as possible. I don't know if this IP has a "low smoke" feature for emissions or not. It's wait & see. I have 2 K-14 turbos, one from an AAZ and one from a 1.6 Ecodiesel.The Eco K14 has smaller wheels, different wastegate opening specs.; we'll see which works best. I need a boost gauge and a simple boost controller also.
