Rob, how would you describe the way your engine is running with the higher boost, compared to the lower levels? Do you see more significant heat issues between 10-14psi, or near 20psi? I'd like to find a level where I have no worries about any issues, just decent gas. Regards,
I have not ran my X on the street much after phase 2. With these blowers the higher the boost you run the hotter it will be. Even when I was just phase 1 running 9 psi boost it would get hot enough to cook an egg on top of the blower after one run down the track. Heck, even just after driving around like normal it is almost hot enough to do so.
This stuff will not cause you any real issues as long as you have an adequate cooling system for the engine and blower. Do that and have a good tune and everything will be alright.
