What does anyone know about the Opel injectors. Any I sight on these would be much appreciated.

I thought I read Antonio was going to try them on his build.  Check with him as I know I read he had researched them.

Yeah that dyno is from a Subaru, probably with a single scroll, super long up-pipe.  That really hurts the ability to make high HP numbers- I would expect a 7163 running high boost with enough fuel to make over 500whp on an LNF.  There are some Subarus running single scroll 7163s making over 500whp- check out the Jager Racing Time Attack car.   It is a very well built (read:$$$$$) setup though.  I would suggest a twin scroll manifold and the 0.8 A/R twin scroll "G" turbine housing for your build for best results, but a "ZFR" style single scroll TH on the stock exhaust manifold should still work okay.

The reason for the single springs is that I have had mixed reviews on the supertechs so I went with the werks springs.

Well obviously Kelu.  Zzp doesn't sell Werks springs.

Your werks springs will be fine.  They are made by the same company that makes the Katec springs for the C6r race teams to us.
