It won't waste anything if used to feed a larger displacement (if you're
refering to higher fuel pressure=max is 34 or 36psi,I think.)Either way an
exhaust analyxer is in order,Can you suggest a source?

I would think that with a little fooling with this and that ,D-jet can be
very flexible.

Is the porsche d-jet THAT dissimiliar?The internal volume doesn't appear to
be that different.
(The porsche bieng slightly larger)
