Thumbs up Boost Setting Questions Duty cycle.

Ok so running FM kit with hydra and a gt2560 turbo and wondering how to set up my AEM truboost and what an appropriate duty cycle is? Also not really sure what Duty Cycle is and means I am more familiar with PSI. Just had my motor rebuilt with Eagle H-rods and Wisco FM pistons 9:1 comp ratio. and head ported. Shop is good but want to make sure I a familiar with what duty cycle is and so-forth any help would be appreciated and or what are other people running with similar set ups. Also what should Spring pressure be set at. not sure with such a fast spooling turbo as the 2560 is.
Thank you everyone.

Well first of all, put a bigger turbo on your awesome engine

Second, RTFM, search google for "setting up truboost"

Third, just keep an eye on your boost gauge

Forth, set the Hydra boost target accordingly.

Duty Cycle usually refers to the amount of time the device is "on" or "active" over a defined period. eg for injectors, duty cycle is the time the injector is open divided by the time for one engine cycle. See here for a more complete definition: Stealth 316 - Injector Duty Cycle Calculation
