BOOST #'s in Heat & Humidity
I'm running the ET 137 Wheel and as of this past month, boost #'s are not going above 11.. In May I was seeing close to 14....
I checked all couplers and IC blockoff and no leaks detected on the hose unders throttle. Before I pull the charger and check slip, I just want to see what others are seeing.. Its been in the 90's and pretty sticky up here on my last few rides. I have also been in some rough waters a few times. So I am not sure if I need to shim the charger or...... Just wait til October for better #'s. First season with this wheel.

Quoted "This CNC machined impeller makes 12.5+ lbs of boost at 8100 rpm and an incredible 13.5+ lbs at 8500"
That charger is not rated for 14lbs even at 8500. If you saw 14lbs @8100 more than likely the gauge was off.

Im down about 1.5 PSI in the heat here compared to cooler weather in the spring. Check your slip. If everything checks out its just the weather
