1997 vs 1995 turbos

I have a 95 855 turbo that ive almost got back roadworthy (thx to the help here!)

One question i have os re: the turbos.

My complete parts car is a 1997 855 turbo

What turbo does my parts car have ?
16T?

And my 95 has a 13G?

Is this correct?

I should swap turbos right? 16T is better right?

Starting fluid test was easier than crank pos swap from the parts car, so that was first. So staring fluid DID yield a ‘vroom’ for 2-3 seconds! So this probably means that ive got a fuel problem? Right? Pressure tested a couple days ago = 46 psi at the rail valve I had the injectors sent off to be r...

Wait, compression ratio on the turbo engines is 8.5:1, which puts in the 125 neighborhood right?

Fuel pressure needs to be right. Get that gauge sealed otherwise your measurement is meaningless. The fuel is metered by time , assuming a correct fuel pressure , so if this is 20% off the car won’t run A 3 second blast of ether willl probably make it go vroom and can help confirm a fuel delivery p...

It's not good diagnostics but you have a parts car so ... I would swap the crank sensor, they can also give a no-start. May as well swap the coil too. People often go by "nice bright blue spark" for strength of spark, I would have to look up how to test it more carefully. But very unlikely both of ...
