I reckon they are about 0.8 bar stock, and you should be able to run 1.2 - 1.4 bar. I run 1.2 bar on my E3. That is about the safe limit on a E3 with its 9:1 comp, but the E1 has lower comp, so you could go a tad higher. It makes a heap of difference.

Hey Roger, I've heard that 1.2 bar is safe with a good boost controller (eg. APEXi, GReddy, etc.) especially since the one's & two's have lower compression than 3's 4's 5's etc. Although standard boost isn't documented anywhere (in English at least!) it is 10-11 psi, or 0.7 bar roughly. I'll be turning mine up to 1.0bar with a Dawes Device shortly, but I want to make sure that the fuelling is OK first as I've installed a HKS F-Con5 & I'm not sure if it's set up properly. I hopre this helps you & if you know anything about F-cons i'd appreciate some info, Cheers

.8 is spot on for stock. Check mods on left. Run 1.2, can go to 1.3 but don't like doing it. Car goes like stink, and whips 6's. Highly recommend Blitz system, fantastic!
