That vids sound great !!! They really make me miss my car.

I´m using two springs on my tial wg, one of 10 and one of 7 psi.

If you are using a 10 psi spring, it is not recommendable to double this rate.

Whit my 17 psi combo springs , my car has been handling pretty good the boost.

Great job.

thanks man, yeah i heard abut doubling up springs.. i acually have a 6psi spring here, but it wont fit inside the 10psi spring i have.... so i cut a piece off the 6psi spring i had, and sat it ontop of the 10psi spring to see if it was the spring in the wastegate not holding the pressure to redline, and sure enough that was my problem... holds 22-24psi easily now to redline... i think im going to get a 10sec pass thi coming suday as it sits now.... i cant wait.

Damn, that numbers seems too low, I had the same problem on my last dyno tune, but the owner of the dyno told me that his dyno reads about 10 to 15% lower than others dynos.

Anyway, et and trap speed will let us know the true next sunday.

Good luck

yeah, it pulls hard up top.... just makes me think about if i should take the car up higher or not... shifting at 8400, it still feels strong up there, and wondering if i should take it to about 9k.... ill see how laggy in between gears it is at the track...

maybe ill just throw a 30 shot on it or something to help it spool inbetween shifts hahaha

Either one of those options would do the trick
