5kCSTQ Wastegate Spring Project

In case anybody else is interested - I finally have a date for the
wastegate springs I'm having made up.  I should have them to ship
by the 18th or so.

I'm posting this in case anyone else is interested - the people who
previously said they were interested got the email attached below,
so - if you received an email from me, you are already on the list.
If you are interested and you didn't get an email from me, send me
your land mail address like it says below.

These springs should get you 1.7 to 1.8 bar without having to shim the
spring, and I'll send you instructions on bypassing the stock overboost
control (it's very easy to do).

At some point in the future, I'll have a black box available that 
provides an adjustable electronic overboost control.  That's what
the comment below is talking about.
