Samel_Camel said:Please tell me you're not doing the old "fishtank" mod of using a simple plastic "bleeder" inline to the wastegate. You've got to watch it. It's not all about seeing how much boost it will take. You're really going to cause some durability issues in the end. You've got to find a happy medium. Hook up an air/fuel gauge. They're not too expensive (about $65 for a matching AutoMeter), they've got pretty lights, and you'll be able to see where the fuel mixture is when you tromp on it.
19 pounds of boost doesn't mean anything if you ruin the engine after 10,000 miles. There's A LOT more to it than cranking up the boost. I've got love for ya man and I'm trying to protect a friend. Don't want you to regret anything later....

So then....at 16PSI, you'd probably be nearing red zone?Exhaust Depot said:You cant go on A/F meter alone. Well you can but thats only if you spring for the $800+ units. Your regular autometer type bouncing led monitor is not sensitive enough to monitor your A/F. YOu need a wideband setup.
I actually saw a site somewhere whey they redo the autometer so it can become more accurate. It will not bounce around as much as the regular one. I like the A/F setups that give you actual 14/1 type readings etc. But you have to pay big bucks for it.
Oh, at 15psi, i was at 11/1 A/F per the dyno.
