Re: Okay turning the thimble was good but..... (CM2RAS)

I did two turns on the thimble but I really want to get it set at a specific PSI. Thanks for posting this up info. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>BTW, anybody know what it is to be set at from the factory? I don't recall reading that in either one of wastegate threads. <br>

Re: Okay turning the thimble was good but..... (mad matt)

i remember reading a general rule of thumb for 1/3 max PSI as wastegate pressure (so 5psi stock)<p>not sure of the stock factory setting tho..

Re: (kmagnuss)

Lucky at IPD recommends not to go above 8.

I did three adjustments. I set it to 6.5, 7.5, and 8.5 and found that 7.5 is hands down the best. Going above 8 and you start to loose performance again. Maybe thats just my car but hey its happy.
