|since were talking turbo AEG+'s. What seems to be the concensus on boost levels for a stock compression AEG. |
I am running 7 psi without a hiccup on my stock compression motor with C2 and 42# injectors. I am trying to stay within safe limits, but would also like to take advantage of the work that has been put in. If the motor can handle 10 psi all day long, i would like to up the boost rather then holding back, but I also want to be smart about this and just up the boost for the hell of it.
Any thoughts or opinions? Jettaiv4, what levels are you running and on what set-up?
t3/t4 turbo .50a/r comp, .63 a/r turb, .57trim
BBM fuel rail
VR6 MAF housing
cam is stock
don't have hp readings yet
I drove it at a safe level of 6 to 7 psi. I got it up to 12psi which I don't want to do that again until I add C2's head spacer to drop the compression. It ran like a bat out of hell. It was really fun. No surges, no dips in the idle. Car runs fine after runs.
I do have some exhaust leak that I need to take care of though.
