 high boost.  Somebody is saying the 10V cars have springs that start to gi=

e to me in the sense that if the springs require 15 psi to compress and you=
r running 16 psi boost...they give--bye bye boost.  Any comments on that he=
re, WRT to 20V engines? maybe the 20V runs stiffer springs already--which w=
ould not surprise me....
