Another thing to remember is that John may be seeing overboost protection from the PCM. You and I are running Jet Stage II'*, and shouldn't see that. John, if you haven't done the boost bypass yet, you might want to try it.

It seems to be. Remember the topic that'* been discussed in FI? About boost cutting at high boost levels for the pullied cars? I've never seen it. Not sure if DrJay has similar experiences.

My belief is that the Jet prevents this. The stock PCM can be bypassed in this regard by doing the boost bypass. This is another reason why I believe the Jet overrides this feature, in that I never gained anything from the mechanical bypass trick.

ok, well, i'm going to have that chip sooner than I was thinking if that'* the case. Should I first invest in new plugs, wires and gatorback before though?

Get everything in top form before the chip. It'll make the 'learning curve' for the PCM much more accurate.

Plugs, wires, filters, fluids, etc. You want that sucker running perfectly first, then feel the difference over the 100 miles or so that the chip needs to settle in.
