Theres lots of threads here...you might be able to squeeze a little more power with a different fuel plate. Other than that you might have to buy some injectors - which will probably lead to a bigger turbo in a short time.

I was assuming you already have guages and the required transmission upgrades.

What tranny do you have?

Oh yeah, some 3k or 4k gsk springs will help you out (if you dont already have them).

Do you have the gsk springs?

Delivery valves tend to deliver a lot of fuel and they usually just end up making a lot of heat and smoke. For most guys, delivery valves are one of the last performance mods they do.

push the #5 plate full forward(free mod). tune the afc again (every one has a certain amount of turns but imo its best to find out what works for your combination and again its a free mod) did your plate come with a boost elbow? if so install it. if its already on there well how much boost are you getting and what are your egts?

have you done a boost elbow on it that helps out a little, also since it is a 95 correct? you can get a decent set of stock used injectors off of a new 5spd 12v which are 215 injectors cheap that will get you some more fuel. 3k gsk couldnt hurt I would stay away from the idea of just shimming your governor springs I had some major issues with that. also you can move the plate around. good luck hope this helped some. I know I built my 12ver on a budget
