    hey sticky the image upload system sucks and to be honest IMO you should just get rid of it. there are plenty of free image hosting sites all over the internet that pretty much everyone knows about and it would put a lot less strain on the server if you get rid of it

    I don't have a maf. It's map based. According to my logs it is saying I'm having sync loss. I reground the engine and it runs really rich now. My whole tune is off and it barely wants to run until I give it some throttle, then it goes wide open and tries to blow the tires off!(which is something it does very easy and at will). So now i will try to re tune it and see what happens

    Check the ones by the oil filter. Mine were leaking until one day one of them full disintegrated. Then it was obvious.

    This is not the case, Jordan is running 100% factory intakes, and from his log is easily holding 21 psi at 6K with a target of 15, and PWM under 40. While this car is at 6 grand is barely holding 19 psi with a target of 25, and a PWM maxed at 99. These are the same turbos, there is no magic here, something is going on with this car. This customer was actually having some wastegate issues from the start, I did not realize he was Ghost, but since its the same person, I am going to say this looks like possibly one of the gates is hanging slightly open, this will give you ok boost control, but you will never hold boost to redline as the you are bleeding of exhaust energy from one of the turbos. I just spoke with him via email, we will get it squared away. I will say 99% of the time an issue like this is either a boost leak, or a vacuum problem

    On my to-do list is to setup the JB4 to allow a user adjustable FF curve by RPM. It would make dialing in custom turbos like this a lot easier for end users. For the time being looks like I need to reshape FF down below 5000rpm to take care of that over targeting down low. We probably should wait until the top end is sorted though. It's needing a lot more PWM up top than I think it should need based on Tony's logs. That is what is throwing the FF down low off as it learns the entire scale up. Up top I'm not sure what might be going on. I'd speculate the difference is Tony was running open intake tubes vs. you running factory ones. But it's good to eliminate other possible causes. Throwing a vacuum gauge on the gate is a good simple diagnostic. When PWM is at 100% they should be around 22" of vacuum.

    Thanks. Tony, we started from 15psi and worked my way up. There is boost control, it just won't hold much boost (target is 25psi). It'll hold 15-18psi flat, but more than that will taper. I'll tripple-check everything, but it is using new lines, filters, etc. Tony, I just sent you an email. We have been talking all week :)

    When I get the new rubber on Tuesday we will see, only thing I felt go wrong was a sputtering HPFP up to this point. Trans was holding nitrous just fine though so I doubt it will be an immediate issue unless I get overzealous on the dyno.

    OP: Good on you for posting this, everyone likes to see things buttoned up and perfect but I know damn near nothing works for me without a ton of "bottom drawer" knowledge and work. Will be good to see you resolve this and how stuff turns out.

    Should be very easy to find. If you can only make 17 psi you have a boost leak or a problem with your vacuum system that controls the waste gates. These turbos can hold 40 psi to redline if you want them to, we have tested that, they will easy hold 30 psi to reline all day without an issue. So if you are making 17 psi, the boost is either leaking out, or something is holding the wastegates open, those are the only two things you need to look at. Let me know if we can help in any way. Edit: Just looked at your log, you have very serious boost control issues, the car just over boost then falls off, it is not even trying to stay on target. As I stated above it is one of those two things, check, all your vacuum lines, check your vacuum can, check your solenoids, check every single boost connection, make sure your air filters are clean, and not restricted, etc, etc. Also please be careful running 30 psi with no real boost control in place, you need to start off much slower, and work your way up to to 24 psi. Jason the first person to receive Stage 2+ is still running them at 18-21 until he gets a custom tune, this is how every set should be approached. Please drop me an email with your current set up, I cannot match orders to screenames. I never know who is who. Edit: Looking at the last logs, if I had to guess I would say this is a boost leak.

    This will be a work in progress post. Setup N54, FBO, 6MT JB4 G5, Cobb backend flash e50 60/40 meth/water, CM10 + CM5 nozzles Map 6 (25psi target) VTT 2+, 20T, clipped turbine Subjective observations: the car drives like stock turbos, with no noticeable lag. You can give it part throttle at 60mph in 6th gear and it just goes, just like stock snails (this is great). The turbo spool and whistle sound is louder than stock which is cool. I've been working with Terry to get the boost dialed-in, and even with the WG's basically shut, it won't hold more than 17psi to redline. The boost tapers through each gear from the get-go. Here are some single gear logs: PWM is basically maxed-out. This is definitely different from log posted by NJZ (LINK) who can hold 20psi with only a 44% duty cycle (vs. 99% for me). I'm hoping to get to the bottom of the lack of capacity of this set of turbos.

    @Njz use the JB4 to control boost only and fueling and whatever with the flashes. I've had so many problems with throtte closures when going 18.8+ psi. Also, look at your AFR! Sorry, only did read first page! lols :D Sorry for making any further confusions. How is the trans feeling?
