Lony, nice black NB! Coupla questions:

1. Where did u position the boost controller (pls post pic!)?
2. Where did u get the dimpled rings for the gauge pod?
3. Where did u mount the oil cooler amd does it make a difference in water temps?

Thx! :)

1. The boostvalve itself is in the engine bay behind the intake air filter and the switch is... see pic!

2. The rings are part of the gauges - i got them from silverimageracing.com

3. I wrote a how-to in the old forum. The oilcooler now sits there where the oem intercooler was. Water temps are nearly the same on the autobahn.

Pic1: James Bond style hidden switches

Pic2: Blue status LED, if it's on: beware :D

Thanks man...so what's the max boost now and (stupid question time :p ) at what point do u throw the switch?
I am now hitting 21 PSI in overboost and 15 @6500 - thats the most safe we got with stock fueling. I throw the switch whenever I want :p

Sorry man, I'm still in a learning curve. I just never could understand exactly how and when you dial it up or throw the switch, especially if you're shifting with one hand and steering with the other! Can't u just leave it 'on' all the time?

No problem ;) If I am on the track the switch is always on. But for daily driving it stays off - less mpg and still enough power. I have set low boost to 10 PSI. And if somebody wants to play with me... :D

You are always one step ahead :p

I have big injectors and MAF here, just waiting for the release of the GT28RS Eliminator :D

Is your intercooler still held by tape muahaha? :p

What gains did you see with the ABD intake manifold? Did you lose any low end and/or midrange power? What ever you gained from the manifold..I'm sure it'll be even more when you go to larger turbo (what is an "eliminator"?..in ref to the GT28RS turbo?).
Thanks!

Look at the abd manidold thread, there is a lot of info. I agree that this manifold produces even more gains on big turbo applications. But even with my k04 I saw more torque between 2000 and 4500 rpm.
