Thread: boost clamp

    boost clamp

    just wanted to clear up some misinformation ive read on here and possibly help others with light mods go a little faster.the boost clamp doesnt hinder the ecu from fueling at all it only keeps it from metering boost beyond the stock level and you dont always need a regulator with it like ive read before on here.it helped keep the ecu from shutting down the throttle before redline giving me a bit more rpm and boost.in theory you could pitch the prop to 7700rpm but once the ecu sees the boost starting to go 6.5+ after 7550rpm it will start kicking back the throttle all the way to redline hence why i went this route instead.full tank 75degree temps i went 72mph at 7550rpm 6.5psi without the clamp and 73 at 7700rpm 7.5psi with the clamp.in the water afr was the same with and without it 11.0 at idle with the bov venting and 12.5 at wot all verified with my aem wideband and etrex legend gps.hopefully this information will help someone later on.ride safe guys

    Performance wise I haven't done anything further because I am pretty content with the speed I was able to get for the rpm i'm turning. However I did do some things to enhance the ski aesthically. I had a buddy of mine wrap the hood visor and glove box with the 3M carbon fiber 1080 series wrap. I also put fuel pressure gauge/boost gauge on deck for monitoring. Here are some pics:

    I guess some parts of the world, you might should takes steps to "make sure" they're the same, but seriously all passenger cars & light trucks are 12 Volts.
