Re: KH wg spring in mc turbo results

Oh, btw, with the old spring+wg controller, I was able to see full boost
(1.9-2.0) very early...much more so before the wot switch would hit. I
noticed that there was a higher boost, higher torque, but more
controllable curve at part throttle boost conditions. Consequently, I'd
rarely ever use full throttle.

I still have much driving to do before I can give a true report on the
current combination.

I'll entertain any questions.
