yeah I have an 4" K&N intake, 4" downpipe, straight pipe exhaust with no muffler so the engine is breathing. I wonder if I have to set it to the 140HP mode to get the higherboost. But It shoots out a **** load of black smoke. Over here in the city Its hard to get away with that. I thought with more boost/air matching the higher amount of fuel should give you a better fuel/air ratio resulting in a cleaner burn..less soot?
By the way eaton which turbos are you looking at? I've been looking at Turbonetics upgrade that uses ceramic ball bearings and the Garrett dual ball bearing turbo. Did you talk to anyone that has either one? I wonder how much faster they spool off the line than the stock turbo. The turbonetics only comes with a 1.00 A/R housing..the Garrett offers .84 for better low end torque. I am not sure if the turbonetics ceramic bearings spin that much freely where they can run a bigger A/R reducing back pressure, EGT and allows for more HP all while keeping the low end torque?
