I attribute my car's extra torque to the SGDP = faster spool. Should be much better now because at the dyno I wasn't using any boost controller.

Leatherface, what octane gas do you use? 93 up here.

yeah 93 octane. from where the stock cat used to be, its all 3inch tubing all the way out. So your DP is most likely the difference of those few extra ponies

Yes. Disconnected it eons ago to install the FM MBC, then disconnected the FM MBC because of severe boost creep, never thought to reconnect the lower-pressure factory unit.

It's more than just extra ponies (and extra bling), it's all about SPOOL. Last week I hit an 18 psi boost cut by 3500 rpm.

At what point are you making 11 psi?

Aside from the gay stickers/colors, it's actually clean and well laid out.

NO, because who in their right mind would cut the firewall to install ignition coils that can fit somewhere else??

Are you sure that's not just the weather stripping? Still sort of a strange place to mount, but....
