    I would check your waste gate for the boost issue. When I first put the ta-49 on my car a couple years ago it was at the place I stored it. For the ride home I was gentle due to the 6 month old gas and the couple other things I did over the winter that I wanted to make sure were OK. Just tipping into the throttle it would go 28-29 psi before I let off. I backed down the regulator to 24 psi. Then I put on the RJC downpipe and couldn't get 24 psi no matter how much I turned in the regulator. The weld for the puck was hitting the exhaust housing. It was nowhere near centered. I had to port the housing so it was clear of the weld and the puck could seat properly.

    Pick of one of my 1.6x launches. I wonder how quick I need to be to see light under one of the tires?

    Actually, looks like the HRPartsnstuff rear sway is keeping the car fairly straight and level when it lifts and launches.

    255s can get the job done for sure. I got 1.5s off mine at 18psi. I agree, check the carbon pattern on the puck an turbo. It may be not sealing. Start saving for a trans build.
