Todd don't worship the numbers. That dyno just prob reads a bit high.

Yea I guess there could possibly be a boost leak but I doubt that. I'm almost sure its the actuator. And it's an Enthuza 3" exhaust. Btw the dyno seemed to be reading average when looking at all the other cars there. 2010 Camaro ss with i/e and tune made 340. Mazdaspeed with s4 upgrade made I think 280 at 18psi and a stock nb miata made 112 or so. Looking for a junkyard 1.8 at the moment to build up and maybe a six speed in my near future so I can run allofit.
