      anyone put an 18cm HC1 on a vr6? or is that hotside just way too big? I have an HY35 on my vr5 with a 9cm and it spools way too quick I see 15-16 psi at 3000

      yeah I think I may give it a try, the worst it will do is cause it to spool really late. I would kinda prefer later spool as it really doesn't seem to like 15 psi at 3000 rpm.

      make sure neither end is connected to they turbocharger or the throttle body. you can pressurize from either side

      do you have something like this you can pressurize with?
