In the case of the G-power car it looks like the changes on the stock boost setup worked well as I would expect would happen by improving octane and lowering intake temps but if it were my car i would not attempt to add more boost or advance timing unless I worked directly with G-power on the upgrade.
I would like to see SHIV's reply on this topic but I think the best option for this is:
- Log your AFR with the S/C map (Lets say 12.5afr for example)
- Enable procede with meth and WITHOUT any fuel/timing changes and see how much the meth drops the AFR (lets say 11.7afr with meth).
- Then you use procede to lean the car back to your original AFR (12.5) and DO NOT TOUCH TIMING.

I'm have a decent amount of experience with the Aquamist kits and I have to say they are GREAT... I'm very close to installing a kit on my ESS VT2 600 M3 for cooling IAT's purposes only but I'm really thinking about Shiv's setup!!!

What do you guys think?
