Don't know - I swapped for it. I've heard 34.00.

Metal inlet pipe. Brazing a 1" Balkamp fitting (7.00 from Napa Auto parts)

Custom spring from a listmember, custom chip from another (stock except
overboost shutdown moved to 1.95 bar). Aftermarket chipholder installed.

>How/what will you be doing soon to get "much more than 17 psi boost?

Negotiations complete for a used custom K26 turbo from a listmember who
plans on upgrading to an RS2 soon, an I'm gonna be testing some more custom
chips. Next step is a 2.5 bar pressure transducer to extend the stock chip's
