i wish i knew my housing sizes.. its a holset h1c but nobody knows the a/r size :lol:. i dont think mine is quite that bad though, but i probably get to 10psi just after 4k.

lately ive been watching afr's over everything though. up in the high revs im spiking 17.0 under full boost :shock: new fuel pump time. afr's gradually go from 13 down to 11.xx then gradually lean out until i get off the gas.

um if you would like to keep things in one piece id keep your foot out the gas with 17:1 afr

believe me i know.. it spiked 17 the first time i got on it with the 10psi spring in and i was off immediately. i meant to go out this weekend and try and add more fuel (see if my fuel pump has anything left in it) but i didnt get around to it. i havnt really been driving the car much lately but when i do im only getting half on the gas and stopping around 8psi.

foot-operated boost controllers FTW! :lol:

i heard they rub the mount and cause it to fail prematurely.

That was the m3m etd, not the WR... Get your facts straight.

However that was only one known case of that happening... If you need me to post the link to that one case I will do so...

And the problem has since been corrected, anyone with the old ETD can contact us and get the fix plate free of charge. ;). But thanks for bringing it up.

I have had 2 locals with WR failure. One with the damper snapping in half on the connecting rod and the other, the bracket breaking. There is a reason ours are thick. ;)

mine spools about 3k-3.2k

it gets old sometimes.. especially when i need to brake boost to avoid getting out-"jumped". flat foot shifting helps a little though not having to wait to spool between shifts.. its just that initial spool thats killer :x
[/quote]

The whole point to brake boosting is to spool...you know this...and it is possible to out jump speeds with your car, ask mario how bad I gave it to him ;). :lol:.

I think once the motor is held in correctly, you will feel the car is alot faster :p.

Lol I might run an externally gated 28r on my speed3
[/quote]

skip the 28r son. I can get the PG manifolds with t3/t4 flanges, then you just need to buy a dp and change the flange on it. go turbonetics ;) Super 60 FTW :lol:
