that still doesnt sound that bad with the stock turbo... once you put the new turbo you will gain some of it back

Did you move the MAP hose from the plennum to the hot side of the spyder? I have read that with this you loose less boost and have less turbo lag.

You dont want to move the map line from where its supposed to be. Are you talking about just moving the boost line to the spyder so its not as jumpy?
