    i was running the vxr actuator on my unmapped let. ran fine, didnt offer any real advantage tbh. fit an uprated actuator-makes a whole heap of difference

    I'm having the uprated actuator fitted to my VXR turbo - costing about 125 quid for the part afaik

    don't think so (GSILady sits on the fence) - I just go with what the Courtenay boys advise

    I have put a VXR actuator on mine, does seem to be better than std.

    I believe the old one used to crack open at about 5-6 psi, think the VXR one is around 8-10.

    A lot of people with Phase 3 seem to be able to run the map ok on the VXR turbo with std actuator after increasing some tension.

    I think Regal push the uprated actuator even though you don't need it.

    VXR actuator is totally different to the old Z20LET item, a lot better made and looks like it will last better.

    Only problem I have is that with it being stronger, turbo takes a bit more winding up then it's wheelspin city!!
