OK, I can see now with the pics. I thought for some reason it would be a similar setup to the ST/RS when you wrote "bone stock". I imagined the stock air box in place. So I guess a custom intake is in use down low?

So could a low temp thermostat help? Is one installed?

No he hasnt changed to a 180 thermostat yet , The intake from filter to Turbo is under the piping to the TB , full 3 inch and the filter is in front of the trans for cooler air and runs to the back to the Turbo inlet , You can see some of the intake pipe in the Pic

Nice numbers, what gear was it done in? IAT? ECT? Fresh install? Curious as to longevity at 10 psi.

IAT that day was 51 deg but dyno adjusted the temps , on actual temps it had more HP/TQ

Engine temp each pass started at 185-186 deg

All passes were in 3rd gear , 4th would spool quicker and make more HP/TQ but I always do 3rd

He has been running 8-9 psi for a few months now and had to change clutch

We dont know how long it will last and going more later when we change fuel pump

He has a ST engine swap and not the stock SE engine , I could do a V8 swap at 500 but wouldnt be the highest SE
