Need more off the line

It seems like it takes days for my turbo to spool up. MOds are

dual 4" exhaust, afe intake, elite turbo, banks intercooler, adj. fuel pressure reg., banks high ram, predator

My old truck (05 f250) seemed to spool way up when power braking but this one doesnt want to.

Btw this is with the 100hp tune at 63lbs fuel pressure

Hit it with some NOS. That'll spool it up for you. Maybe try upgrading the FICM and get Eric at ID to reprogram it.

Dump the predator, and while you're at ID with your FICM, have Eric put some tunes on your new . That'll get it spooling faster, I don't know why, more fuel or something, but mine spools considerably faster with a tune vs stock

Remember adding a bigger CAC adds volume to your intake which would make the initial spool of the turbo a little slower.
