More fuel. No exhaust leaks between the manifolds and turbo and no air leaks between the turbo and heads.

Are you using any kind of a chip. The combination of lag and high elevations (which makes it worse) is why I installed a fast spool housing.

What other mods do you have and how much boost are you making?

I think you should see about 5 lbs or so more boost than that. I would get right at 27lbs before my intercooler install. After the intercooler install the highest boost I've seen is about 24lbs. I am curious to see what it will be when I get around to upgrading injectors.

Since the EVí2 use a boost sensor and not the typical tubing, I wonder if it is just more accurate or not?
