i think you need to buy a regulator. stock is 70 gph and it was regulated. if you have it chiped, you might want to think about straight pipes and new air induction to help flow and add horsepower. if you have all that stuff done, i would buy a regulator that you can set at about 95 to 100 gph.it will help with horsepower but then i would put an aftermarket blow-off valve for your turbo to help keep boost psi at a max performance. with all that done you ought to be pushing about 550 hp at high perfomance setting on the chip.

that wire isnt a ground wire veggie, its a power wire. the relay is energized with this wire and grounded to the bracket. this puts power to the field coil, which closes the switch in the relay.....you may have a power problem.....Marc

Where would that be installed?
