    i finally got the balls to put my homemade kit on last weekend, but i think it's only hitting about 4psi because i might have a charge pipe leak. (just learned how to weld while i was doing it). you would be suprised how many people back off when they hear it spool and the little pshshsh!
    the only problem is my boost guage isn't working at the moment, last time it worked was when i had an idle prob and the highest i seen it then was 4psi but i have to be hitting higher then that because it feels fast as shit. i think my IACV went out though because i have a code 14 and when i'm idling it's at like 200-500 rpm's. tomarrow i'm fixing my chargepipe leak and moving my wastgate source to the charge pipe so i don't lose any pressure because of the intercooler.

    i've seen you on HMT.
    right now i have a t25 with the wastgate set at 8psi but i'm not sure because boost gauge went to shit, on an d16y8 with nothing done to it but abuse. i've had it running since monday but it hasn't been running right, but i adjusted my fmu and it seems pretty good but i need to fix my leak. next is to get rid of the dsm ic and get the tyrus fmic and louder bov.

    no it's not the turbo because i still have boost, and the bov cracks everytime i let off. does the wastgate make a noise?

    the wastegate, if internal, wont make much noise if any. for the kid making only 4lbs, turn up your boost controller.
