Re: (V50_T5)

Problem with a boost controler IMO is the turbo can supply say upto 18 PSI of boost at 3000 RPM but all even the most agresive chips push the boost back to 9 or less PSI at 6000 RPM. Since this turbo is so so close to be over the edge driven, I would not fool around with anything that could drive the turbo at or above 9 PSI around 6000 RPM... Now if the turbo is changed out and some sort of additional fuel added...
