Do the X50 cars use the same high flow fuel pump that the GT2 has?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering... someone was telling me that the stock TT's fuel system was pretty much maxed out after a ECU tune and even then they are only getting the AFR's to around 12.5 under full boost. I know 12.5 makes the most power but that's only if you're running high octane fuel or a methanol/water injection system...otherwise turbo cars usually run safely in the 10's and 11's AFR's. I know that normally one of the first steps in tuning a turbo car is to change over to a higher flow fuel pump so as to lower some of the injector duty cycle, but I rarely ever see anybody talk about doing that when modifying Turbo's. I know the GT2 has a higher flow pump, and so I was wondering if the X50's did also because they're running the same turbo's. Do the TT's have a built in knock sensor that can be read when programming an ECU on a dyno? I realize they aren't making much boost but on 91 octane at 12.5 afr on full boost I'm curious what the knock count is.
