Look at the first actual wastegate they have listed. It says .5 bar (7.25psi). If that's the same actuator they put on the turbo I have, it would explain why I only see 6psi from the wastegate.

I decided to put the manual boost tee on on Monday though. Even without opening it any, I'm seeing 9psi spikes, and a stable 7psi now. I quite like it.
That actuator is for a t25. Did you try setting up that actuator from scratch? Keep an eye on the AFR if you start upping the boost. Before you know it, you'll be wanting to taste 11 psi. At this point, I'm thinking 300 whp is probably about right for a DD. Gonna take around 19 on an rs to get there though.

AFR is fine so far. I won't be pushing anything more than what I have without an eBoost controller. In fact, depending on how hot this summer gets, I may even drop the boost back down to 6 to take it easy

^If you want to up the boost you can borrow my adjustable actuator to make sure your tune is good for it before you install the eBoost. For the summer heat you can add a water/meth kit to keep your IATs down ;)

08-11 had no hatches or wagons. Coupes are rarer to find though, especially with the manual.

The wheels are Sparco Assetto Gara's. 17x7, 42mm offset (same as stock). Got a 205/45/17 on them. When they die next summer, I'll get a 215

Ive never seen a 2 door around here in DE, I only see some zx3s and newer 4 '12+ and a few ST's. I like the 2 door it reminds me of a kia forte

Girl at my work has a red 2door 5spd. I think the sedan looks better, something about the C-pillar on the coupe throws it off for me. Maybe it's just the color, black ones don't look bad at all.
