<BR> I agree wholeheartedly with Brett regarding dealing with T-P. My personal
<BR>experience was similar, getting huge runaround and then they tried to bill
<BR>me for work they didn't do after I finally told them not to do any more
<BR>work. However I disagree re the Wastegate spring. I have Ned's older IA3
<BR>setup and I have tried various combinations of stock spring, shimmed stock
<BR>spring , T-P spring. The T-P spring is perfect for my setup. It ramps up
<BR>quikcer than stock spring because it is much stiffer. It adds about 2-3 psi
<BR>of boost. I momentarily spike to 22 psi, then down to 20, which bleeds down
<BR>as rpms go up. I am still pulling 15 psi @ 6000 rpm. I have slightly bigger
<BR>turbo than stock, 2B 24/26. If I disconnect the WGFV, effectively putting
<BR>the car in limp home mode, boost is way off, so I think it is safe. I even
<BR>posted to the list recently over this problem and was assured it was normal
<BR>car response. But with regard to T-P, remember it rhymes with a word
<BR>starting with "c" and ending with "rap". Of course, YMMV.

<BR>Well it looks like I may have made a mistake in sending my ECU to tap.
<BR>I guess I will have to start doing more exhaustive research.
<BR>I find myself doing more reading and research than I do wrenching on the
