I drove it! There is a bit of "fettling" to do (is that adequately diplomatic?), but it's working and on the road, and that counts for a lot. Fettling first, then more boost ;) Only 4-5psi at the moment (so it's more 'swift' than 'fast'), but I think any more would result in bad things without TLC for the suspension.

cheers
