Re: How to get more boost

Want more boost.... get big injectors, turbo, oil, etc. Do some research on combos.

Re: How to get more boost

Why do you want more boost? Do you think boost means more power?

I can tell you right now I make more HP at 15# boost then you do at 25psi...

I made 490 rwhp at 40 psi of boost... then with some more tuning I made 545 rwhp... with guess what.... 40psi of boost.

Boost means nothing. You need more fuel.
