I plan on making my own race program for JUST the track, and im curious what is the max amount of boost the little K03 can take. 21? 22?
without burning up on me
a safe max PSI

thx

i mean i figure with high boost down the 1/4 strip it will be able to help me out AKA my own race program, instead of going APR cause i love my UP http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

The most boost you should put through the k03 is 14 psi. any more without an intercooler upgrade is going to burn your engine up quick.

Thats funny, i spike 23psi and hold 17psi until about 5500rpm where it drops off to 13 to redline.

My dyno showed apr race program to be a 10hp peakhp increase and 40 ft/lbs torque .Thier race program is all about aggressive timming no increase in boost at all.The dyno shows gaines through the whole power band.I love it

Doesn't the APR race program require high octane fuel?

Well, when my Forge needed to be relubbed (had a vacuum leak) I was peaking at 23.9 PSI! After I fixed that bad boy I was back down to a more reasonable 18-19 PSI peaks. Now I don't think 21, 22, or 23 PSI is good for that little turbo, but its quite capable of producing it.

Drew, you too? I thought I was the only one with numbers that high. Before the Dp I would peak at ~18-19, but now its blows past 20 on my 20psi gauge. WTF?!?! I mean, I expected it to peak a little higher, but I think it may be a bit much.
