WHOA, totally missed this...You have to use a FI pump to feed the HPFP!!!! The pump on the engine takes the ~50+psi and boost to over 1000psi for the DI. The in-tank pump will not properly feed the DI pump at low pressure. It must use FI level of pressure to feed properly.

Also, any update? I know I have no room to talk with my Dtec build, but always enjoy prodding others.

I'm sure this guy David Clark is a member on here, no? Surely he's got plenty of details

This seems to be the car as the photos in one of the videos are the same as those in this thread. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCAEk8 ... kwNoE1SSTQ
