A slight smile at the lips of this old list-fater once again, as me writes:
I might suggest nicely, Mr. Ross, that you do some homework quickly on CIS
fuel system pressure, control pressure and their relationship to each other.
 Picking up the pieces of a second motor/turbo might not be the way to learn
the fuel 'game'.  More of either in CIS, is NOT better.
