      Kev, as for my gut, after the new turbo (S400SX 67mm billet) you may or may not need to push the "+" button once in awhile for the upper range

      but, over on this coast, we doubled the core size on the AWIC, >double the pump ability, changed the intake manifold, increased the turbo (82lb/min before now 94lb/min), and gonna finally get the Lugnuts-tuned dog-box in the car. we ARE SHOOTING for some real numbers finally, if i can drive this thing worth a sh!t. the driver is the weak link, here.
