Smile Re: Boost???

Oooo, lots of variables here.

How big is the turbo?, what injectors?, what chip?, Does it just FEEL slower and how are you tuning it? Do you have a scan tool.

Stay tuned, You'll be in good hands here.

Had the same thing when I upgraded, takes some tuning to get things really cooking, but It'll hapen.

Default Re: Boost???

Boost is only a number, and your wastegate controls boost. Bigger turbos will flow more air at the same boost level as a smaller turbo BUT, depending on how big your upgrade is, the response of the turbo may make it feel laggy. You injectors may also have a hand in the mix if they are too large. More information is needed. You may contact us directly if you need help.

Hope this helps you.
