not really more boost, needs more under the curve power, better launch, rear end, and turbo control.
pushed 17psi though it but it doesn't matter as I never really saw that much to 2nd gear a tad and mainly 3rd gear where it wanted too move. If I had more under the area I would of been better off.

Want a boost controller that can keep the damn wastegate shutoff till near target boost.

i think its pretty good for the $2.50 you have in it man

without me re-reading that thread what are you using? i have a halman pro laying around. i have had more success with the haltech controlling boost though.
