Default Up and Running, 5psi is ok but more is better

Well I finally got everything together and after afew little hicups shes running and I'm fairly happy with the set-up so far.

So I'm running emb, stock pump(255 would NOT idle worth a dam), no afpr yet(just need to install it when its nessicary), 370cc rc injectors, t25 turbo, 3'' downpipe, 2.5i/c pipe and an srt4 i/c.

Now I had the wife pull some timing and add fuel until I decided we were running pretty safe, which is very slow btw lol, and now I want to know where to go from here.

Currently only runing 5psi or so (bar gauge), can't dectect any boost leaks but I'm sure there is some as the stock WG spring is good for 7psi atleast and I was hitting .5bar before I changed my ic pipe and clamped everything down better. Which leads me to a boost leak, but I can't find any, before it was leaking and hitting .5bar now its not leaking and running less boost...???

Also where do I go with the tuning as to adding more boost fuel timing ect, which comes first, add more fuel then introduce boost then pull out timing?

I have an LC1 but haven't hooked it up yet as I was thinking it feeds directly into the emb so i can datalog it against everything but can't seem to remember...I know it can stimulate a narrow band for the stock ecu but does it go to the em or the stock ecu?

Well i think thats it for now, hopefully get some help and get some more boost going this weekend, dam boosted civics are getting real annoying.

Just thought I should add about the rx7 lsd, pretty happy with it so far, feels strong, locks up nicely....Not as nicely as my old mazdaspeed lsd though... Have to tighten it up this winter.

Thanks for the help,
