Headers, cams, head work will all reduce the boost level. Basically anything that makes the engine more free-flowing will allow the boost to run through the engine.

I dont have headers, or anything. i just have straight pipes from the oem exhaust manifolds back with quad tips.. it shouldn't reduce the psi that much should it?

lol, I want to unload that stocker, i was hoping to sell to an auto tranny buyer for your kit when you were selling. btw, i have a similar setup as you, tm-12, 8psi and 3.46 diff. how do you like the combo of diff and sc? it seems like first doesn't pull that hard, where do you launch at with normal driving?

Unless you swap out your headers, you won't do much to change the peak boost. The most restrictive component of the exhaust on the stock car is the OEM headers. My guess is that you have too small of a pulley for your desired boost level (especially if you are pulling -20in of VAC and your idle is stable).

If you add headers to your setup, you will lose boost. Hard for me to say how much, maybe someone with direct experience can chime in.

wow is thats like a 12-14psi pulley!

bit too much for my stock internals..




--------
sheff...

what pulley are you running right now..

i thought you already had a 8-9psi pulley

if you dont have headers you should be making those number on the pulleys.

with the 8.5psi pulley i made almost 9.5 psi due to restrictions on the exhaust manifold/headers side

once i got headers it dropped about a psi..to 8, then i went with a smaller pulley.

and the vacuum is wrong.. im sure you tee-'d it off in the right vacuum place..

and make sure your gauges are not faulty..(my stewart mechanical ones were half a psi off)

but its -15.

I dont know what casues the numbers to go lower or up but its something id llookk into.

I would be very careful about adding more boost. I know from personal experience that once you go down that slope, you are in for some rude drivability lessons. Getting a smaller pulley is fine. Keep in mind that if you keep adding power (headers, cam, head, exhaust etc), your boost will go down. Then you will attempt to raise the boost back to 9.5 psi which is actually 12 psi because of your better breathing mods and you will blow your charger (I found no oil in my catch can but oil in my intake hoses-guess that means charger is done although I have been having oil problems from day one so I think mine was defective from the start).

yeah sheff listen to bean,


a 9.5psi pulley is the stock block limit with reliability concerned


My ess kit has the sickest software and it adapted to the new pulley just fine. The headers have not caused any check light and its been two great years of just pure power. I have checked the pipes right behind the maf and have seen films of oil which i cleaned but it hasnt appeared again in along time and that was after 18months of thrashing it.

the smaller pulley does spin the blower much earlier in the powerband...1.7k ish compared to the 2.2kis

very useful and it raises the boost at wot from and it kick in earlier and alittle sharper. I dont do too many 7krpm runs, but when i do i see numbers i used to when i had no headers and 8 psi pulley so im content.

as for sheff..

forget trying to get new pulleys and get confused.

just get your 8.5 psi pulley to hit 8.5psi with your stock headers first.
