sounds very similar to my rebuilt motor / turbo setup.. Takes a bit too get going but when it gets there its very savage. Gets a couple of PSI pretty quick but doesnt really shoot to 12 or more until around 3500rpm.. Goes mental from there right to the redline though. Even thought the "ass-omet...

yeh i have one of those lurking here, i always thought it would be a good fit.

well the above is quite obvious as it is simply the best boost control to be had, and im led to believe a electronic boost controller will control a external gate better than an internal actuator as it can control both sides of the diaphram. Biggest thing to watch for with external wastegates is yo...
