Roadrash187 is on a distinguished road

If anybody in the Chicagoland area want to see it. Probably best to wait til closer to the mid-end Dec. My friends Lightning is getting done at APG Perfomance. They are almost done with it. They are now fabricating the turbo system & getting ready to do the roll cage. His total cost is coming close to 25k. Cant wait to see that truck break into the 9'*.

When the engine gets a load the exhaust pressure goes up spinning the turbo faster. A SC doesnt do anything until the engine R'* increase.
Well, the SC is always spinning and boost is more or less controlled by the "wastegate". When I go up a hill and need more power the wastegate closes, supplying the needed boost.
