Basically the turbos boost what they want to, there is no actual restriction other than t size... I drive everyday @ 16psi but now im hitting around 20psi, not a big deal though I was running 22psi last year before they finally gave out...

Car feels really fast in this weather, Im waiting on my damn tranny Id love to see if I can tap 11s before all the tracks close when I get the built tranny and some DRs!... I dont think I have enough time though :(


20 lbs of boost! Man those Supras are nuts! I've always wanted one, but just couldn't resist the lure of the German auto. I'll never be running times like yours, but I'm still enjoying every minute of it. Grim had a nutty Plymouth Laser that was pushing that kind of boost. It got pretty stupid fast before he "retired" it. Good times! :D

Besides, Neon can drive, i've just never been in a car pulling that kind of stunt, and the first time is just scary.

Course, now i have to get one of them, or maybe i'll just wait and pick up a 911.


But man, just wait for your M5!! :eek:

neon, no worries man, I was workin that day anyhow so things were crazy, lemme know on the PITT game....and pooshda, a grainger valve would be a decent boost controller for you for the time being until you go full programmable. And from what I've been researching the AEM unit is a PAIN to tune (not a dig on the unit, just relaying info).

I hear its a pain in the *** to tune as well (if you dont know what your doing)... Im not going to mess with anything too much, I will have a professional help me tune the car... I could break way too many things if I messed up attempting to tune it... Im probably going to get an actual boost controller once I go single and not use the AEM for boost control though, it would be a PITA to change boost settings with that when I can just turn a nob :)

Neon1... thats what its all about man, enjoying your car!... It doesnt matter if you run 9s or 16s... as long as you love your car and enjoy owning it, driving it, and working on it thats all that matters!

Running some mean times and such is a nice bonus though!

Mines running right at 15psi consistantly since I got the car running.

Probably could do more once I get the engine to stop overheating.
Thermostat is stuck and electric fan relay is gone.

Ah well- the joys of always having something to work on.
