so i was wondering..

i'm doing a greddy turbo kit on my d16y8 now i was just wondering could i just buy a boost controller and boost up to 10psi safe? or should i just leave it where its at? which i beleive its 6psi??

now i'm running resistor box and dsm 450 blue top injector and vafc

i have no internal job to the motor...thanks!

yeah you can. thats very very common with the greddy kit. most people running it that ive seen are using stock internals @ 10 psi...............but i thought the greddy kits came with some sort of engine management. i wouldnt use the afc hack if i were you. i would chip your ecu and run uberdata or crome or if you dont wanna do that run the black box that comes with the greddy kit.

don't even need a boost controller. You can shorten the rod on the wastegate a little and get it to 10psi no problem

kinda skatchy? The rod on the wastegate is threaded so you can adjust the boost ;)

yup, see where it connects to the exhaust housing? there is a nut that you can loosen to shorten the rod
sweet so if i want more boost i would have to tighten it right?

and is it as safe as boost controller?

do you just turn it to 10psi but what is there to measure? boost gauge?

how much of turning would i have to do?

what number has people putt down with the greddy kit at 10 psi?

thanks!

just check your boost gauge to see if you turned it enough... 10psi=~200whp (i imagine)

EDIT: make sure you just turn it a LITTLE at a time, 15 psi pull could end in disaster...
