Good lord! The moral of the story is relying on WI to keep your motor together increases the chance of a catastophic failure. Can you make crazy power with it? Sure, but you should be aware of the risks.

I'm not sure where the idea came from that IC are crazy spendy, but I've got $120 in the piping/core/bov. I plan on the same route as Jay, using WI after a tune that can survive on it's own.

I am currently is some of the last stages of making a safeguard system for the WI idea. Once the system is activated, it will activate a light that will stay on until a button is pressed to reset the system. Once I have tested the system to ensure that the settings are right for my current setup, I am going to be testing it on other cars to try and get some good baselines, and maybe start selling the system to other forum members to ensure that motors do not blow due to a careless fill-up of the tank.

I had the light on my boost gauge come on, when the pump was activated as well steve, if the nozzle is clogged it wont help. just my 2 cents.
