I assume this is good, unless something is in danger of being damaged.
Does this situation sound safe to you guys?
Yes, more air availble before the TB will increase your final boost, but remember that the colder and more humid air this time of year can have a big effect on it, too. Running the SC up into the 'danger zone' on the gauge isn't a problem. By the end of Feb, I should be boosting around 12 pounds. Way off the scale.
