Also to find where 0.16Bar Boost Pressure is leaking.

And that drag may have been run slightly up hill (I don't remember) - think I was more concerned with 0-60, 0-100 and standing 1/4. But, with reference to the original postee's 60ft time, that was done in ~2.2 seconds (and not 2.5 minutes! )
Sounds like you have quite a bit to sort out mate, fuel pumps need to be in good nick if you're pushing the power up.
I had issues with my distributor, there's an arm in there that had rusted through and wasn't letting it advance/retard. I had it totally rebuilt with new cap and rotor, if i remember it wasn't a cheap job!
