thanks for the input Stan,
boost will have to be kept very conservative as the turbo engines for rabbits are purposely of low compression nature. also oiling jets below the pistons are absent in NA models. anyone attempting that should seriously consider an properly sized, well placed (ideally water sprayed) intercooler, but most importantly monitor added heat in the engine via an exhaust gas temperature gauge.
thenafter SLOWLY make adujustments to the wastegate to increase boost.

happy smelting!
