Ok, I've been running the SP for about a month now and have liked everything except PTB! I was driving the other night and was spiking 17, holding 14 when all of a sudden, it held 20psi in third:wah?!: !! I got out of it and then tried again.............same thing, 20psi spike!! I was thinking the turn buckle was hung up on something and decided to fix it the next day. Got up the next day and went outside to fix whatever was wrong. I popped the hood and found nothing. I removed the spring hoping that the car would run normal now. Took it around the block and found that it hits 13psi and "creeps" to 15!! So, I think the WGA is fucked, but I still have plenty of boost!! I'm not worried, I'll be getting S2 VERY soon.:thumbsup:

Just thought I'd share................

due to the hotter temps you will run a bit higher boost. but why not just turn the buckle down and run less boost? i've been running the SM for 2-3 months now and never seen a spike that high. maybe 18 at most.

It didn't have anything to do with the temps. It was fine one second, then 20psi the next.

boost is different in every gear...not uncommon to spike more in third/4th than first/second....wastegate isnt broken
Here's the thing, when I removed it about a week ago, it would only boost 12. And now it holds 15 in all but 1st and 5th. 1st is 11, 5th is 16.

if you're holding 20 psi on stock fuel....
It held for longer than I wanted. I backed out as soon as I saw it wasn't going down.
