no ...if you set at 1bar maximum, you should be ok with the oem set-up, which runs at approx 150-160lph

however, if you do get e.g. a walbro and afpr....set the fuel pressure to 41-42psi with vaccuum tube off
- would also recommend using a wide-band lambda and checking air-fuel ratio

It's advisable to upgrade if you:
go above 1.1bar
and/or
install a chip which will have different fuel, ignition and rpm parameters
get a bigger turbo
etc

btw
don't use a bleed valve when setting the boost....
get a dawes/ other ball & spring product or an electronic controller

xlr8, thanks for that I've got an avc-r so 1bar sounds enough until I get my hks f-con unit fitted then I'll see about getting the pump etc done.
Many Thanks
Wayne

why would you want to do it after fitting an F-con ?
...that's just a fuel computer that will optimise fuelling
&/or will allow you to run a little richer with oem pump

as said...wouldn't bother until/unless you get a chip e.g. gizzmo
