Blake...not to give you any crap...I just wonder how accurate that gauge is...maybe I'm most concerned about my gauge not being that accurate???
You're running a stock 3.8 pulley right?

I have a 3.5 pulley and it only hits 8.5 (at around 70-75mph...I have to shut it down by then...roads here are too curvey)

like I said...I dont know if your gauge is right or mine is wrong or they are both right...I kinda want to mail you my gauge...it plugs right to the osbII port...very simple..plug and play....thats it.

then you(we) can check the numbers...

Cool...so you don't mind testing my gauge for me?
You're pretty close to me so shipping is not an issue, I'll pay shipping both ways.
If you're okay with this, I'm going to order another wiring harness from Aeroforce so I don't have to remove mine. If you're not okay with this, no biggie...

hey guys, keep in mind that 'boost' is a variable number with a lot of factors. Pulley size does not = boost numbers. It's the total package, and 'boost' is only part of the equation. The lower your 'boost' number the better your engine is flowing it's air, which can be utilized to make more power.

Another way to put it, high boost = more torque. Better breathing (lower boost, same flow) = more power.

more videos too come when the riviera gets back, should be in a few days

i put the trim on the other week, i had to drill my own holes to get black plastic fender lockers to work. needless to say the 10 clips you need are 20 chucks and it was a pain in the ass

you slide them in from either side rather than clip them in, broke 1 in the process

I like the look of your car without the chrome strips and think you should keep them off. They are probably too big to go in the trash so I will take them off your hands...
