    so you suggest .022? is that specific to a range of power of PSI one will be running or is it just a value thats been confirmed to work well in forced induction overall? i will be running 10PSI and was curious if i should do .025 or .022 as you mentioned

      .025 would probably be fine for 10 psi. You can always regap them if you get spark blowout.

        .022 is good so far for 23 psi

          Just wondering if anyone has thought to try comp turbo oil-less turbos in the past. They are big in the 370z car scene. A shot of grease each oil change every 3000 miles. Works great, and quick to build boost. From what I’ve researched it’s almost a no brainer to go that route and have an easier install.

            Curious, when you first installed your max psi turbo kit, what exhaust did you have installed? i'm having any issue where i cant find a boost leak and my turbo wont hit 10psi only 9 and then trails to 4psi by 8k rpms. people are telling my my exhaust is too restrictive and creating too much back pressure or that my turbo is too small and that the S54 is asking for air up top than my turbo can give.

            ive replaced my cheap ebay BOV and Wg with authentic Tial Q 50mm and turbosmart wg45 hypergate units and had no change in my boost issue so im trying to figure out something else.

            ive been trying to find someone selling a maximum psi intake manifold for sale to replace the ebay one i have currently.

              I run the stock exhaust with an electronic cutout. I don’t think your exhaust is the problem especially at that level of pressure. I ran 20 psi on the dyno last week with the cutout closed. When I had problems building boost, it was because there was a big crack in my intake manifold.

                That's good data and refreshing to hear.

                What size turbo were you running? How large is your exhaust turbine side?

                  It’s a BW 64.5/67 I think the downpipe is 3” but I’m not sure. Exhaust is stock after section 2 I should say. It does make a lot less power when the exhaust cutout is closed but still makes plenty of boost.
