Default Needmoretoys = Needmoreboost

So I installed my FM waste gate actuator today. It was not fun. I had to cut the bracket that holds up the intake manifold. After a little cursing I got it all buttoned up and now I have to set it. I wasn't sure how to do it so my buddy at work is going to show me. What a crappy ride to work. I could only boost 5lbs. (It is part of the install) I do have the need for speed , it;s something I learned to live with. So tomorrow when I get up I will adjust the actuator and see what happens. I am excited to see what I can push out of a stock turbo.

computer controlled yes. with a DSP.
I have a boost gauge but no wideband yet.
I have way too much boost I had to turn everything down on the DSP. Way to much knock.

Yeah KR is bad. How much were you getting and what kind of octane are you running?

I think it was 4. I'm running 93 octane. I hit 18lbs in no time. It felt good till 4500. I'll get it dialed in. I can't wait. I need to log the DSP through my laptop to get all the right PIDS.

Cold weather where you are at? I always noticed I would get some KR when the weather got cooler and the crappy winter blend gas came in. 4 isn't that bad. Anything over 6 is pretty bad. Or if you actually hear it audibly lol. But you always want to shoot for 0. If you get 1 or 2 its sometimes false knock.

I'm in Maryland. It's been real cold here. I do hear the know. It keeps me out of boost. I can drive the car. I need to turn down the WGA then I should be ok for now. When it get nicer out I'll see if I can tweak it a bit. I really need a wideband so I don't blow this thing up.

Yes get a wideband. They can be had for around $150 shipped on eBay. that is for a AEM Uego. Way cheaper then a short block. Winter is the time to be running lower boost. So NeedMoreToys = NoMoarboost!
