Default BCS adjustment

Holy crap that was the quickest mod i ever did! It moved down atleast a 1/2 inch, took it out, WOW that made a good difference there...dont know how that will effect fuel consumption...
The boost gage moves now! The last bolt on the rear of the BCS on the Drivers left side i couldnt get my 1/4" socket in there to tighten it, it seemed fine..any final opions on how good that will be?

Remove the BCS from the bracket, tighten the bolt, then re-install the BCS. That'* what I did. Takes 2 minutes.

I saw no change in fuel mileage whatsoever. I'm into the boost quicker when I want it, but during cruising, no change. Remember, when you're in boost, you have more torque and horsepower. That means your car doesn't work as hard to achieve speed or climb a hill. I think it'* really a wash.
