    Where r u gettin the turbo From mate? I ordered 1 from regal yesterday and rung them today to ask the same question. Apparently if they supply it they adjust the actuator to suit before they send it.

    i think what he means is regal will set the actuator for z20let application for him

    Yeah that's what I mean't. Apart from I've got the lel engine running eds phase 2 at the mo, but I don't think that will make too much of a difference on the actuator setting.

    Basically I was just letting people know that if they were thinking of getting the vxr turbo unit over xmas regal have a Xmas offer on it at the mo of £469 and they will adjust the actuator before they send it depending on what application it was being used on. Sorry if I didn't make myself clear b4.

    Anyway hope the info helps some1 out at least!
