Cheers mate, everything you see there is from my own hands. I have done much more radical stuff than that but the racing scene is a secretive one so I can't really post pics.

There really is nothing quite like an engine on a stand with no other purpose other than to entertain a bunch of blokes standing around drinking piss!

You more need air and fuel. You can turn up the boost until you run the stock fuel system to its limit, at that point you need to upgrade fuel pump and injectors to allow the engine to consume more air. Then you may find the turbo cannot supply enough air so you need to upgrade the turbo.
Its pretty simple really, just make sure you check the air fuel ratio as you tune, too lean and you will melt your pistons.

Another compound setup, they seem to slowly be showing up more and more. I contemplating doing on on my rx7 however sold the damn thing so, cant really do that now.

What kind of motor is that?
