How do you manage those 8 psi once you really leave your altitude ?
I know altitude scrubs off boost pressure, but I don't believe it to be that much??
I will not go to sea level, I live in the moutains.
If I decide to, I will put a bigger 100mm pulley on.
Based on what you are saying, I would need a 7psi pulley?
Roman I would love a comment...
