It was mainly good, slight sign of detonation from when fuel pressure dropped but everything was ok to use again, I have got the bearings coated this time as it works so well in other car so will be interesting to see how they work, and a different dry sump pump which gives more clearance to pulley so i was able to go up a bit in pulley size and get fan ratio better but nothing else changed.

Did you ever find a definitive answer of what caused the issue?

No, can't be 100% sure, but most likely is a injector o ring failure as log showed a pressure drop but then it was stable at the lower pressure

Nice.
Autometer(?) and 2 stage or is there a 3rd 'inside' the normal oil pump bit?
