Turbo SVT Focus..... Its alive!!!!

A week ago from last Saturday I went to pick up my SVT from Tom, it was running at 15psi on the dyno and 17psi on the street Even thought the tune was completly safe I decided to turn the boost down to 13psi for the ride home, never know when you'll get ahold of bad gas.

As most of you have read on the way back the car starts running like shit, not making much boost, high EGT's and so on. It ended up being a crack in the custom aluminum intake Tom made, no biggie. So I send it off to get fixed and it gets back today so of course I miss work to instal everything and get it running

Here's where I got surprised, I started up the road sorta taking it easy and I finally decide to step on it ....... It started some really surprising TORQUE STEER and shot up to 16-17 psi

What's odd is I didn't change anything on the boost controller, didnt even touch it. The torque steer didn't exist when I picked it up, so I'm thinking maybe the intake had a small crack in it all the time, beats me. So I turn the boost back down the 13psi, take off down the road , crank it up just a bit in 1st, grab second... the boost hits 13psi and it almost ran off the road on its own HOLY SHIT that was fun

The intake preformed flawlessly, and Tom did an excellent job on the repairs.

Tom, you are a GOD in the world of tuners The drive today was just down right fun, and I cant wait to meet up you at VIR this fall, you better br ready big boy

Not sure why people think a torque biasing diff will eliminate torque steer. ATB Diffs INCREASE torque steer by providing more power to the wheel with the most grip. If you had a locking differential with equal half shafts, then torque steer should be eliminated. But with a torque biasing diff, torque steer is more of an issue than without it.
