Default 185 tires @15psi... will I die?

I put my MBC on a few months ago cause the EBC was giving me spikes/drops... and the MBC will hold 15psi to redline. I figured based on my last dyno pulls and my recent timing/COPs upgrade I'm in the 220whp neighborhood. Definitely not responsible on 185/14's. So I pulled the booost controller and it's wastegate only for a few months.

I think my Heliums are sold, so back go the stockers... I may die due to lack of boost in the next few months. But when I get my 6UL's and 225/45 RS2's, I'll probably blow the dif.

That's a perfect excuse for a 7"dif and my new 3.636 gears that came today!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOT! It's a crazy circle.

I was hoping for a picture or video of a big smokey burn out. I'm a little let down.

b) you rotating your tires 3 times a week

Ben, PM received... probably will hook up the EBC again and run wastegate daily... only engage the EBC on the freeway in a straight line.

The tires I'm running now are brand new 512's... a lot smoother and queieter than my T1R's... but almost lost it on the offramp coming to work this morning. Steering is MUCH lighter, but grip is lacking.

PS: anybody know a good witness protection agent... I might be needing one.
