With efi live can I lower my boost I have been hitting 40pounds peak on my hot toon but an my 200 hp toon I only hit 31pounds. Is 40 pounds ok I was thinking I I can limit it to 35pounds I would be better off. I You could help to tell me what to change the max boost it would be great. Is it just max boost setting ? Can you even do it?

That is way to high, keep it to 32-33max, and the turbo is more efficient much lower then that even.

Desired boost tables is where you want to be playing.

i dunno about yours but my map wont read past 28psi that maybe where your running into a problem. since the computer thinks its making less boost then it really is it comands higher vane and then even more boost.


also, where is your gauge plumbed at? directly behind the compressor will make it read kinda high

thats just what it does, first run out the boost gauge hit 44psi and the log showed 28. i asked nick about it and he said its somewhat common.

its a pain in my ass for tuning, desired tables basically obsolete only boost control is max vane so i make not enough boost in low gears and too much in high gears. aftermarker map is on my "need to buy" list

I had my bud change the boost tables around a little and set the max boost at 34. My gauge is drilled into the tube under the air intake. Is this right? My max boost is around 30 to 32 how much power will I be missing from moving nicks tune from duramaxturner down
