Re: Chips, turbos, & engine life

The 200 3B are making power up to 6.800 rev.
Shifting from 1. to 2. @6.800 (220 HP) means landing in 2. @4.200
where you have 170 HP to start your next acceleration..
If I want the same performance low end after chipping, my
2. gear should start at 170 HP = @3.400 - giving a shift from
1. @ 6.200 (265 HP)
The point:
I believe it is the high rev's killing engines. By raising boost you
can keep the rev's down at you daily driving and even go a lot quicker
- or don't use full throttle
