If I am understanding this dual WG arrangement correctly, the internal gate and the Tial gate are arranged in series. Thus, the external gate doesn't actually "see" the bypass flow until after it...

You lost me again. There is no air hose sourced from the DP. There is a factory boost pressure source on the j-pipe(aka compressor discharge tube).

You made me realize that my automotive knowledge is way low. Part of my confusion comes from the factory labeling that hose assembly the "vacuum/boost hose assembly". I have a new one sitting in my...

I agree with you, Kaj. I too am positive that Demon meant to write, comp housing, and not turbine housing. I just couldn't resist the chance to take a free pot shot at a mod. No harm intended...

I mean that you have to adjust/tighten the WGA more. 11# of spring pressure is just plain wimpy. If you want to run 23# peak, then you will need to tighten the WGA up to at least 17-18# of spring...

So, do a WOT run for me starting at 2500 RPM in 4th or 5th w/o the EBC in the mix. This way we will know what your waste gate spring pressure is. I am thinking about 13#.
