I can hold that boost gauge pegged from 60 to 110mph when the bypass solenoid starts to open.
Really? I've never noticed that before. Does your boost drop off at 110 ?

Yeah it comes off red line and balances out at 0 around 125 or so. I guess a custom pcm would lift this along with the speed limiter?

Nice ride you got there except for that windshield, that looks a little nasty!

But it really sucks that you got nailed.... funny pix though.
Did the cop say anything when you took a picture of him???

It really sucks about your windshield.... but $100 deductable isn't that bad. Will it affect your insurance any? (probably not as much as the ticket)... :(

Yeah the glass was cracked at the time and I didnt have my licience (left the wallet at home). Plus for what ever reason I didnt have the registration or insurance papers? But I do know my drivers licience number and batted my eyes so all I got was the small fine :P
No insurance issues here, I have road star safe driving which gives a huge discount and no jump in premiums if I have a claim. My birthday is in a month so one of the two tickets I now have gets cleaned off the record. If you have more than 9 points (3per ticket) you get fined in the mail plus they could 'watch' you.
The mountie didnt say anything about the pics, he was admiring the car too much

Yes, just got back. Great trip. Sunny and dry 18*C.
You were right about the boost drop off at 110. Hadn't noticed that before. If that DHP ever gets here hopefully it will take care of that.
Didn't even see one Cop.
I am going to post another thread for an interesting problem that has just happened.
See "Extraordinary fuel mileage!!!!"
