You must have nice roads. I daily my car, always drive very fast and the PSS10 doesn't have good capability over very bumpy roads even on 3/3 damping and increased ride height.

Road arnt too terrible. I tend to stay away from any bad roads that I know about.

Right now I have them all the way down and since the front didn't go as low as the rear I removed one collar from the front to reduce the tire/ fender gap

awesome build!!

i too have a PTE 5858, but on a 2.5 at 14 psi.

for boost control im using an Eboost 2, which i find to be amazing.

anyhow im looking forward to your numbers and seeing where the limit is on this turbo.

Cyl 1 and 4 go boom



Happened right before the final tuning this morning. Put new plugs in and car sounds like it's running on 2 cyl. Gonna have it towed back to my place so I can pull the head off and see the extent on the damage :/

I need a beer.....

And thats why i kinda want to just stay at 400whp and call it a day. but the more power bullhorn is saying my name. Maybe just some IE drop in rods will do it for me

I payed, and my car has been solid for 1 1/2 years now with only very minor issues. Thats the way it SHOULD be lol. I feel for you brother.

Sucks dood.

What can you do differently to make sure it doesn't pop during tuning the next time around?

Tinkered around with it earlier. Just have to undo the turbo from the mani and take the intake manifold off and the head will be ready to come off.

Did find this though. Completely kinked coolant hose so maybe it got too hot and boom?
