The stock fuel pumps arent that strong and are seen to fail here quite a lot if yours is the original and therefore ten years old, I'd change it!

I've put walbro 255l/hr pumps in mine as soon as I started tuning them.....running lean aint no fun

Your stock aero turbo should be good for say 280-290 bhp....... no idea what psi that is
