Went out in my roomates TII yesturday with my roomate and 1revvin7. Did some tuning with the wideband. We still can't figure out why hes not hitting full boost. It levels off at WOT at about 6 psi as if he had a huge vaccume leak, but we've searched all over and cant find one. So we decided to unhook the wastegate and let er rip. He needs tires bad, at 4psi they break loose and it feels like hes got over 300 to the wheels haha, but all in all when its all done being tuned and we figure out this leak it should move.

nope. We did fine one boost leak, bov was set too soft. @ 4psi it spins tires through 1st and 2nd without droppping the clutch .

I take that back, if we start off at idle and punch it, the tires start chirping at 4psi, then at 6psi break totally loose, it does peak at 10psi while the tires are still screaming..

We got some tires that can hold the power. Compression was like 110-120 on the motor.
