how much boost svt

How much boost can you run on a turbo svt.to narow it down using a medium intercooler 31X6X2.75 Watercooled t3 50 lb injectors.

BOV at what pressure,and how do you set a BOV

What is a good inexpensive way to controll boost..Possibly different wastegate springs

I know it's a pretty broad question I am planning on just running 5-6 lbs day to day but how far can you go ?

I think Tom runs 18 psi on his. Get a Joe P MBC. They are about $50.

tom only runs high #'s with race fuel. the compression of the engine severely limits the boost that can be applied on pump gas

He still claims to do it on stock bottom end. He asked how much so I told him, race gas or not.

Tom

Is that at 18 psi?
Can you make a guestamate on power at 15 psi boost. I don't expect what I'm working on to be as efecient as your kit, I'll be excited if it holds boost and doesent blow oil in the intake.

You will be able to run as much boost on your SVT as your tuner can safely tune it for , That is what it will come down to
