SV1000 Turbo Update

The bloody Turbo is still causing me some problems, but I’ll not be beaten, I’ll get it in the end (Or it’ll get me!!!) I am still fiddling with the Fuel Pressure Regulator trying to get a good setting that lets the bike run off boost and produces power on boost. Currently I have a setting that lets the bike run but the boost isn’t producing real power.
