Question aerocharger kit question

alright i just helped my friend install a aerocharger kit on his focus. he had it dyno tuned with 5 psi and hit 160whp. anyways oh course anyone who loves speed wants to go faster. i was wondering if anyone knows how to adjust the boost level. since everything about this kit is untraditional i m askin someone who knows more about this kit than I. also is there any turbos that can be swapped with the stock aerocharger. thanks

yes there is a turbo swap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BEGI has a conversion to replace the aerocharger turbo with a conventional set up, it comes with the new piping down pipe, and whatever else is needed. as far as boost pressure goes...................by pass the vane actuator (internal waste gate) and do what i and a few others have done and make a custon external w/g set up. then u will get 0 boost creep and it is easy to tune.
