      I have a 97 mk3 vrt with a ebay "gt35r" and I'm wondering what kind of numbers I can expect with 15lbs on stock compression? I have all other supporting mods,
      C2 42# software with 4" maf
      Homemade SRI Port matched
      2.5" kinetic DP
      FMIC

      Car pulls real strong, I am just curious what others have made with similar setups. Thank you in advance.

      25,27. My gauge read ~24.
      Put a 3" DP the night before the dyno.
      Turned down to 22 and felt no difference. No dyno @ that pressure, but could still break loose in 4th and 5th with 215/40/17 ecsta LE sports.

      That's badass. Did you ever run the car without spacer in it? If so what did you have boost at?

      Are you not happy with the 8.5:1? That is what I have to put in. I got it for free off my buddy. So I figured why not?

      No, it's fine. I just want to get a small amount of low end out of boost back. This is my every day driver, only vehicle.

      It's not gutless. It's perfectly fine. I drove the car with the spacer and 3" exhaust N/A for 6 months before boosting. It was ok, but just needed more pedal and used quite a bit more fuel as compared to my stock 95 gti.
