    Stage II?

    Well yesterday i did a top speed test using a GPS and the acceleration was amazing but top speed was very disappointing. 70??? is that right. makes the work i did barley worth wild. i have a BOV but i dont have a boost gauge yet so i dont know PSI. but does this sound right to you guys?

    We need a full list of parts and what rpms you are turning, and adding a boost gauge is almost a necessity to troubleshoot problems. Check the below thread and just go down the list ...

    What SC wheel? The Riva one that came with their stage 2 kit or the new one that's a copy of the green wheel?

    The riva s2 wheel doesn't need 42 lb. injectors. An accurate RPM reading will help us better diagnose your troubles.
