we'll see you in a month or so with one of the classic topics:



"i was driving and suddenly the engine lost its power, whahappen?"



as for you taking off the MBC...is your WG ported? The minimum amount of boost your turbo will spool too depends on your wastegate, as an MBC CANNOT lower boost (well if you set it to 20psi it can lower it to 15, but not any lower then the psi you see when running a line straight from turbo to WG actuator)

Why do yuo say that, I have the fuel to support it, anyways, my WG is not ported, why would the boost stay the same after I completely remove the MBC.

meh, just be careful.



ok so your turbo is completely stock, and the wastegate isnt ported?



when you remove your MBC does the boost hit 10psi and just hold there? or does it just keep going?

if you've got a full exhaust and intake on an unported S4 turbo 10psi is about right for no controller, just be careful when the weather starts to get cold cuz it'll shoot right up
